8th Annual Sedona Marathon Event. On Saturday, February 2, 2013, the Sedona Chamber of Commerce, along with the entire Sedona area, will welcome thousands of runners, their families and friends for a weekend of fierce competition and neighborly camaraderie in the world famous resort destination of Sedona, Arizona. More than 2,500 runners and walkers will participate in the 5K, 10K, Half or Full Marathon races which will take the runners through the scenic Coconino National Forest District, known for its magical red rock formations, and onto the streets of what Good Morning America has chosen as one of the Top 10 most beautiful cities in the United States.
The Sedona races are ranked as some of the most beautiful races in the country.
The red-rock views, stretches of soft ground and mild, high-desert temperatures help the Sedona Marathon events live up to its reputation of a world-class event.
