About This Activity

Boston Qualifier! Many marathons claim to be flat and fast, but how many can say they are DOWNHILL and fast! Join us for the inaugural Buckeye Marathon / Half Marathon / 5K Run/1 Mile. The marathon route features a drop of over 640' from start to finish.

The Buckeye Marathon / Half Marathon / 5K/1 Mile will take place on December 13, 2014.  All distances will end at the Buckeye Municipal Airport.  The Half Marathon, 5K and 1 Mile will also begin at the airport, with the Marathon course starting at Festival Foothills Elementary School in the Sun City Festival community (transportation will be provided from the finish line to the start line for marathon participants).

This event will be run on a certified course (certification #AZ14011JOE) and serve as a Boston Qualifier.  All events will be chip timed.
