2023 Lost Dutchman Marathon
"The marathon start and the first six miles were absolutely magical with the pre-dawn campfires, full moon, and then the sunrise giving way to a beautiful desert scape!"
"I can proudly say I loved every minute of it. From the sign up to expo to race day you all made everything smooth and effortless."
"I am so glad that I chose the LDM to run my first 10K. The views of the Superstitions at sunrise was amazing! I'll be back soon."
"I ran the trail run today. It was well organized. Great weather, great scenery, great volunteers, great shirts, great medals, and an awesome time!"

Arizona Runner's Favorite
Sunday, February 19, 2023
The Lost Dutchman Marathon and it's associated races are a favorite of serious marathoners and casual runners alike. This event is held annually over President's day weekend near the rumored site of the legendary Lost Dutchman Mine. Runners can depend on a beautiful location, excellent weather, great volunteers, and fast times.
I am a Canadian snowbird and have had an opportunity to take in 11 races this winter. I have also completed many other events in Arizona in the past. This was by far my favorite event. The race t-shirt was excellent, the volunteers superb, the overall organization from parking to transportation outstanding, and the medals and awards were very unique. I would highly recommend the half marathon as the scenery on that first mile was incredible! I hope to participate in this event again next year. Kudos to the organizing committee on putting on such an excellent event. This is great value based on the entry fee.
