Race Description

The Phoenix marathon has a beautiful race course that begins below the large white Phoenix sign painted on the Usery Mountain. Marathon runners will experience nearly 1000 feet of net elevation loss in this fast Boston Qualifier. One of the goals of The Phoenix Marathon is to provide its runners with the best possible finish experience. The Phoenix Marathon achieves this by offering a wide variety of fruits, drinks (including Muscle Milk, Gatorade Endurance, and ice cold Pepsi products), quick energy snacks, breads and much more! Join us this year for an experience you won't forget.

2016 Phoenix Marathon

Overall, a great race. Incredible support from local organizations, and tons of folks come out. The marathon course gets a little quiet sometimes, but the aid stations every other mile make up for it! My only complaint is about the full marathon pace team this year who were way too early and way too fast out of the gate. Hopefully better expectations will be set for the pace team in the future, but otherwise, I'll be back for sure to work on my copper star!

Loved It

This was my first 1/2 marathon. The organization was great and well planned. I committed to run this for at least the next five years my experience was so good.

Great Race

Decided to jump all-in on my first Ever race and do a marathon. This course lived up to my expectations and the organization was great. Signed up for 2017!
