The 4th Annual Buckeye Marathon “Race to the Runway” is this Saturday, Dec. 9 and features a variety of challenges for everyone.
Marathon participants will be chasing their personal best times to the finish line while also trying to qualify for the world-famous Boston Marathon.
There is also a half marathon, 10K, 5K, Kid’s Zone and a family fun obstacle course where you can test your balance, coordination and stamina on balance beams, a zig-zag rope course, wall climbs and more.
The marathon will begin north of the airport in the Festival Ranch neighborhood. The half marathon, 10K and 5K will all start and end at the Buckeye Municipal Airport, 3000 S. Palo Verde Road.
More than 750 participants from around the Valley and around the world are already registered for the event. There’s still time for you to participate too!
Proceeds from the Buckeye Marathon will benefit the Buckeye Youth Scholarship Fund, providing opportunities for local children to participate in recreational activities throughout the city.
Volunteers are also needed to assist with check-in, staffing water stations, the Kid’s Zone, distributing medals and so much more. You can volunteers as an individual or as a group. Either way, we’ve got a job for you.
All volunteers receive a free lunch and t-shirt, plus get to experience the premier West Valley event first-hand.
