Ready to Run in Big Sur?

We are sad to announce this year’s Big Sur River Run has been suspended, due to COVID-19, to ensure the health and safety of our runners, walkers, and volunteers.

Save the Date for Big Sur River Run XLI (49) – Saturday, October 23, 2021.

The run’s beneficiaries, Big Sur Fire and the Big Sur Health Center, have never done more to serve and support our community than this year between the Dolan Fire and COVID-19, both of which are ongoing events.  These critical emergency services need our support more than ever and in lieu of paying a registration fee to the Big Sur River Run, we encourage you to donate to each organization directly:Donate To Big Sur FireDonate to Big Sur Health Center
Please indicate in the message area that you are giving on behalf of the Big Sur River Run.
A beautiful loop course along the Big Sur River and the towering redwood trees of Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, this 5K walk and certified, chip-timed 10K run is a fun way to experience and support the Big Sur community spirit.

As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the Big Sur River Run donates the proceeds from its running events to local, non-profit organizations. Learn more about our grant recipients.
