The North Olympic Discovery Marathon


We’d like you to join us … virtually or onsite … for what has been called the best boutique marathon in North America.

13th Annual
Run For Joe
June 1 – 2, 2024

Big Sur Marathon – 2012

On May 29, 2011, Capt. Joseph W. Schultz was killed in action in Afghanistan. After we took time away from our daily routine to remember Joe’s contribution, we spoke about what annual event best embodies Joe’s dedication, humor, friendship and spirit.

We chose Big Sur as our original marathon location as we recalled the words of Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez, Joe was a true Son of California. We will remember his sacrifice on the shores of his native state’s most pristine and legendary stretch of coastline.
