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

January 18, 2015

This relatively flat course tours through three of the Southwest’s most scenic cities – Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Tempe! The full marathon and bike tour start in downtown Phoenix, while the half marathon and mini marathon are looped courses launching from downtown Tempe.

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. Blending ingredients like prickly pear fruit, mesquite honey and desert sage into fragrant concoctions that soothe, smooth and energize, the Scottsdale spa experience goes beyond the everyday and ordinary. These celebrated spas are the perfect way to indulge and rejuvenate.
