The Lost Dutchman Marathon, Inc. is a public charity run by an all-volunteer board of directors and officers with proceeds directed to local youth organizations focused on the economically disadvantaged.
Since the Lost Dutchman Marathon’s inception in 2002 we have donated over $529,150 to various local youth organizations.
2018 will be the 17th 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.
This charity event is supported by a strong group of sponsors and volunteers.
