Über Buckeye Marathon
Boston Qualifier! Many marathons claim to be flat and fast, but how many can say they are DOWNHILL and fast! Join us for the Annual Buckeye Marathon / Half Marathon / 10K / 5K / Fun Run. The marathon route features a drop of over 640’ from start to finish.
The Annual Buckeye Marathon / Half Marathon / 10K / 5K will take place in December. All distances will end at the Buckeye Municipal Airport. The Half Marathon, 10K, 5K, and Fun Run will also begin at the airport, with the Marathon course starting at Festival Foothills Elementary School in the Sun City Festival community (transportation will be provided from the finish line to the start line for marathon participants).
This event will be run on a certified course (certification #AZ14011JOE) and serves as a Boston/National Qualifier. All events will be chip timed. The marathon course will be a closure time of 6 hours, requiring a minimum pace time of 13:45/mile.
Proceeds will benefit the City of Buckeye Youth Scholarship Fund, giving kids the opportunity to participate in recreational activities throughout the city.
