Event Date:November 13-14, 2021

As of April, 2021, we are NOT planning to hold the 2021 Monterey Bay Half Marathon events, originally scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, November 13-14, 2021. We continue to closely watch developments in the distribution and use of vaccines for the COVID-19 pandemic and we know the governor of California has said things could return to normal in mid-June 2021 if certain metrics are met. However, at this time, it is still unknown if we would be able to receive a permit for a large in-person event in November 2021.

Our highest priority is always the safety of our participants, volunteers, friends and family, and residents. We were also very concerned about having access to needed public safety and medical officials, volunteers, and personal protection equipment and supplies during this ongoing crisis. If there are any changes in our plan to NOT hold a race in 2021, we will update this website. 

The Ocean View Challenge combo Package: for those who would like to run Saturday’s Pacific Grove Lighthouse 5K and Sunday’s Monterey Bay Half Marathon at a discounted entry fee. Special finisher medallions will be awarded to those who complete both races. The Active Duty Military discount does not apply to this event category.



To be announced for 2021, if any.


To be determined based. We will continue to update our website and social media channels as new information becomes available. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
