Über The Phoenix Women's Half Marathon
Phoenix is red rocks, blue sky and golden sunshine. Phoenix is mountain trails and city lights. Phoenix is palm-canopied resorts and mural-adorned streetscapes. Phoenix is the cosmopolitan heart of Arizona and the soul of the American Southwest.
With that being said, the Phoenix Women’s Half Marathon is the place to be!!
Making its annual running in late January, the Phoenix Women’s Half Marathon, 10K & 5K is described on their website as “destined to be the premier women’s running event in Arizona”. The race organizers describe the current state of women’s running in Arizona as on the decline over the past three years; determined to fix that, the organizers created an event that was just about the running — not the long lines, inadequate parking, or crowds of confused runners.
The half marathon starts at 8:00 AM, followed by the 10K and 5K over the next half hour. With chip timing, finisher medals, race photos, giveaways at the finish line, and age group and overall awards three deep, the Phoenix Women’s Half Marathon promises all the perks of a well-organized race without the downsides.
The Phoenix Women’s Half Marathon also offers a virtual run option for runners who can’t make it to Phoenix on race day, which runners may use to participate via running, walking, treadmill, or even taking part in another race.
