Boston Qualifier!

Join us for the 6th Annual Buckeye Marathon, Half, 10K, 5K, and Obstacle Course. 

Known for its downhill and fast course (marathoners will drop over 530 feet in elevation from the start to finish), the marathon route starts in the community of Sun City Festival before making its way around the beautiful White Tank Mountains and ending at the runway of the Buckeye Municipal Airport.

Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K runners will start and finish at the airport, with views of the White Tank Mountains on the outgoing section of the out-and-back courses.

This event will be run on a USATF Certified Course 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.
