If you’re into running through natural jawdropping beauty, the Sedona Marathon Event belongs on your bucket list!
In 2018, I will FINALLY be running the half marathon in Sedona. I have intended to for the last 2 years, but in 2016 I was recovering from a fractured fibula and in 2017 I was recovering from meniscus surgery – in both cases I dropped to the 10k – which is a totally awesome distance in itself! But that half has been calling me for years and taunting me.
Hilly races are not my strong suit, but there really is something magical about being in Sedona that just makes the effort worthwhile. The last few years the weather has been sunny and crisp – not too cold. It’s a really enjoyable run.
This will be the 13th year for the Sedona Marathon. According to their website, “The course will take participants through the scenic Coconino National Forest District, known for its magical iron-clad formations, and onto the streets of one of the most beautiful cities in the Country – a city that has most recently been named by “Good Morning America” as one of the “TOP TEN most beautiful places in America.”
Looking forward to bringing my cheering squad again! Can’t believe it is just over 6 weeks away!
In my next Sedona Marathon Event post, I’ll be sharing race day tips and ideas to extend your trip into a full on “racecation”.
You can choose from the 5k, 10k, Half Marathon or Full Marathon distance. What are you waiting for? Register now with code 18BibRave and save 20%!!!!
