Salinas Running Events
Run in the Name of Love is a unique event offering runners and walkers the opportunity to honor and pay tribute to the very special people in their lives.
Participants will enjoy the charm of Carmel-by-the-Sea, its historic sites, the unparalleled natural beauty of the course (with views of sandy white beaches, the dramatic Pacific Ocean, Point Lobos, and Pebble Beach) and a memorable finish celebration.
Plus, its on Fathers Day! Begin your celebration with exercise, challenge, and fun! Perhaps you would like to make this a meaningful run or walk by running in the name of your dad? Or register for our Father/Daughter, Father/Son division and run the 5k together!
The Big International Marathon is a point-to-point course run on scenic CA Highway 1 from Big Sur to Carmel the last Sunday each April. Towering redwoods, crashing waves, coastal mountains and verdant pastures are featured on this bucket list course. The centerpiece of the course is the iconic Bixby Bridge, located at the halfway point of the race, where youll be greeted by a tuxedo-ed musician playing a Yamaha Baby Grand Piano.
