Arizona Runner's Favorite
Sunday, February 18, 2024
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.
This was my 40th marathon and one of the best - if not the best - in terms of local spirit and volunteer presence. I was really impressed with the organization and execution of this race. If you're looking for a smallish winter marathon with a high likelihood of good weather, this is one to consider!
