P.F. Chang’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon and 1/2 Marathon

Date To Be Determined

This relatively flat course tours through three of the Southwest’s most scenic cities – Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Tempe! The full marathon starts in downtown Phoenix. All Marathon participants will receive a finisher’s jacket upon completion of the course!

The half marathon and 10K are looped courses launching from downtown Tempe. New this year, the mini-marathon is now an official 10K course and a timed race! All participants will receive a finisher’s medal, bib and t-shirt.

For the first time in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon series history, the finish line will feature a double headliner! The Wallflowers will play for the bulk of the half marathon finishers, and OK GO will play for the Marathon finishers. Of course, local bands will play live on entertainment stages along every mile of the course. The bands will keep the course pulsating as runners rock their way from start to finish!

Kids can get in on the action at the annual KiDS ROCK ARiZONA on Saturday, Jan. 17 at Tempe Beach Park. This is a 1-mile fun run for kids in grades K-6. Hundreds of little rockstars will complete the non-timed race. All participants receive a finisher’s medal, t-shirt and gear bag!

Scottsdale offers everything you need to make race weekend a mini-vacation, from our stunning Sonoran Desert setting and pampering resort spas to award-winning restaurants and so much more!  Scottsdale’s resorts are ready to welcome you with premier accommodations, special race-weekend rates and, in most cases, complimentary race-day shuttles to the start and from the finish line. We invite you to make Scottsdale your race headquarters and enjoy a full weekend of sun, fun and relaxation!

During your visit to Scottsdale, experience all the city has to offer from desert exploration and outdoor thrills to fabulous dining and shopping. Scottsdale is home to over 200 of the finest golf courses in the world and offers endless outdoor activities.

If you’re ready to relax after the race, Scottsdale has more than 50 resort and day spas to choose from and treatments offer something for everyone.
