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.
