Runners will start and finish at The Phoenician Resort, with the first three miles run exclusively on resort property. The course will then wind through the Arcadia area, where you’ll find pristine palm-lined streets, historic citrus groves, and friendly neighbors to cheer you on. After running through Arcadia, you’ll race along the Arizona Canal Trail before re-entering resort property, where a quick sprint to the finish line will land you at the historic Jokake Inn, the site of our post-race party featuring a champagne brunch and live music.
Nestled at the base of Camelback Mountain, The Phoenician sits on 250 acres, with eleven restaurants, nine swimming pools, eleven tennis courts (and the only resort in Arizona with four different playing surfaces), and an 18-hole golf course designed by Ted Robinson and Homer Flint.
This exclusive event is limited to the first 1,000 registrants, and includes discounted lodging rates at The Phoenician starting at only just $289.
Half Marathon starts at $139.00, 10K starts at $89.00 and 5K at $79.00. Race entry includes finisher medal, a limited edition Phoenician Half Marathon shirt and post-race party and champagne brunch.
