A traditionally slow Big Sur Half-Marathon weekend got even worse for businesses at the Breakwater Cove Marina on Saturday.

“If it was any other Saturday, I wouldn’t be standing here talking to you because it would be too busy,” Leny Rapisarda said. “This isn’t just about us. It’s the kayak shop and the dive shop and the entire Monterey waterfront that gets shut down for the entire weekend. It’s not so much about the marathon, it’s about the way the city handles it.”

Why is it called the Big Sur Half-Marathon? It’s not in Big Sur, no where near. Since it’s on a slow weekend and only half shouldn’t it be called the Not In Big Sur Half Fast Marathon?
