Afternoon all, I am going to be going to the West Coast of America for 3 weeks next Summer (2016) from the last week of July. I am really keen to find a race to take part in, which I would like to be above a Half but potentially Marathon or short Ultra. Just wanted to know if anyone could recommend anything that they have taken part in, as the trip isnt yet booked would be an opportunity to convince my girlfriend that it can slot into the schedule!!

Too Much Water
Don't know the dates but Big Sur marathon is meant to be amazing.

West Coast is amazing, I drove the PCH amongst many other places this summer.

Not sure on dates but there is usaully loads of stuff going on around Lake Tahoe.

The west coast has a huge amount of stuff. I've known people to move out there purely because of the running!

Thanks all, some very useful advice and think it might be that I go for San Francisco Marathon, not sure my girlfriend will fancy me limping about and needing to be waited on for the last week post a 100 miler!!

Got something to say?
