Yes this is an event – not just a marathon!
The 9th Annual Sedona Marathon Event begins Thursday, January 30th with the movie “Desert Runners,” a marathon expo and more! The marathon is Saturday, February 1st with four amazing races – 5K, 10K, Half Marathon and the Full Marathon. This marathon has a reputation as a world class event, and the course is ranked as one of the most beautiful in the country. With mild temps and stunning red rock views, no one’s sure what takes your breath away – the running, the elevation or the vistas!
Whether you’re a runner or spectator, you’ll want to get to Sedona early and take advantage of Sedona being a TripAdvisor.com top destination in the USA. The city and area offers numerous activities, journeys, dining and shopping experiences. You may want to take a jeep tour of the Sedona area or a vortex tour to summon up the deep energies within you. There’s always a hot air balloon ride, or a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon, or maybe book a “spa day” for after the marathon. Whatever you choose, you’ll find the sights (and sites) “breathtaking!”
