The Rock ‘n; Roll Marathon Series makes running fun! Each year, more athletes participate in Rock ‘n’ Roll running events than any other running series in the United States. The Rock ‘n’ Marathon Arizona is a relatively flat course that runs through three of the Southwest’s most scenic cities – Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Tempe.

The 5k has a beautiful and flat looped course that will start on the iconic Mill Ave. Bridge and finishes at Tempe Beach Park. 10k participants will start with the half marathon participants on University Ave. and will split at mile 2.5 to run along the beautiful Tempe Town Lake and finish at Tempe Beach Park while the half marathon runners get to enjoy epic views of the valley of the sun including, Papago Park and Tempe Town Lake. But no matter the distance, all participants get to enjoy the live entertainment, cheering teams, and other forms of entertainment all along the course. The live entertainment keeps the energy alive and the course pulsating as the runner’s rock their way from start to finish! Kids can also get in on the action at the annual Kids Rock Arizona! Hundreds of little rock stars will be able to participate in this fun 1 mile run for kids in grades K-6.

Whether running your 10th marathon, third half marathon, first 5K or supporting a runner, come out and enjoy the excitement that is the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon.
