With the news of Highway 1’s partial collapse near Rocky Creek Bridge earlier this week, Big Sur Marathon officials are scrambling to devise a solution before the race, set for April 28.

“As you can imagine, we have a variety of agendas,” Josh Priester told the Monterey Herald. “We have 25 days until the event.”

An official decision won’t be made until Friday at the earliest, but Priester says nothing—including running the full course—has been ruled out. The course typically begins at Big Sur Station and runs along Highway 1, ending in Carmel. Runners World
