In 2004, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series came to Arizona to put on a race like none other and the inaugural Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona Marathon & 1/2 Marathon was born.
Since it’s inception, Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona has made running fun by infusing the course with live bands, cheer teams, and creating a block-party atmosphere for participants and spectators. On January 13-14, 2018, the race will return for its 15th year celebration, taking runners on a scenic tour of Phoenix, Tempe and Scottsdale.
In 2018 we will celebrate 15 years of running in Arizona. We will celebrate each of our runner’s journey, the remarkable race moments from over the last 14 years, and all of the moments worth running for.
