Another run faire to block the roads and keep you from sleeping in on Saturday.

To celebrate the holiday season, the Arthritis Foundation welcomes friends and families to tie jingle bells to their shoelaces, don festive holiday costumes and join friends and neighbors in support of the Arthritis Foundation’s mission to prevent, control and cure arthritis and related diseases.

Some of the best-known streets in Monterey and Pacific Grove will be closed to traffic for two to four hours Saturday and Sunday mornings as runners participate in Big Sur Half Marathon events.

Saturday’s 3- and 5-kilometer runs affect a small section of Cannery Row from Prescott to David avenues in Monterey, plus Ocean View Boulevard in Pacific Grove as far as Sea Palm Avenue near Lovers Point. The affected areas will be closed to traffic from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m

Hope they clean up after themselves better than that triathlon did.

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?
