One of our RTR members mentioned it might be fun to do the Big Sur marathon in California, if a group was interested in going. I had that race on my "someday" wish list as well, so I thought I'd check to see who was interested. The 2012 race is already filled, so I thought we could plan WELL in advance for 2013 to see what interest there was. Registration for 2013 is not yet open and so we won't work out any details until after the 2012 marathon is held. For right now we are just trying get the word out so folks can start saving their pennies now!
As the time gets nearer, we'll firm up plans but if you think you are reasonably sure you'd be interested and would be able to go, please RSVP. No need to RSVP no if you can't go. For those who are interested but aren't into doing a full 26.2, there are several other race options. There is a team relay for the marathon as well as other distances (21 miler, 10.6 miler, 9 miler). So when you RSVP if you know what you are interested in, feel free to state that.
Some info on the race: "If we were told that we could run only one marathon in our lifetime, Big Sur would have to be it." - Bart Yasso, Runner's World
