16th Annual Lost Dutchman Marathon

2017 will be the 16th Annual Lost Dutchman Marathon. The marathon, associated races and activities are held every President's Day weekend in Apache Junction, Arizona.

Run at the base of Superstition Mountain near the rumored site of the legendary Lost Dutchman Mine, this event is a favorite of serious marathoners and casual runners alike. The marathon follows a USATF-certified course and can be used as a qualifier for the Boston Marathon. 

The event features a pre-race campfire, and includes a 2 Mile Fun Run, 8K Trail Run, 10K and Half Marathon in addition to the marathon itself.

Feedback: “For anyone looking for beauty as well as a great, well-supported run, look no further than the Lost Dutchman.” Visit our photo gallery to see what past events looked like.

This charity event is supported by a strong group of sponsors and volunteers.
