The FULL Phoenix Marathon

It was only a year ago, that a few running friends gathered together to throw around the idea of a top quality Saturday marathon in Mesa, Arizona.  We pulled off the first Phoenix Marathon Half in March of 2012 with accolades and appreciation from nearly every participant.  But now, it's here!  The new route and elevation profile of the FULL Phoenix Marathon. 

The route will begin in the spectacular Usery Mountain Recreation area off Ellsworth Road, wind it's way through the neighborhoods of Mesa including downtown Main Street, and finish off at the Riverview/Bass Pro Shop Mall.  And the marathon is now a Boston Qualifier. 

There will be great swag bags, awesome aid stations, super sweet finish line booths and chunky finisher medals as well as thousands of new and excited runners.   And ALL of our proceeds go to feeding hungry kids in the valley via Arizona Brain Food. 

As as marathon committee member , I am proud to stand behind this event.   We have dreamed big and now we will achieve those dreams. 

Stay tuned for the course map .... but for now, sign up at today.
