Description

Run where no marathon has gone before…through “The Petrified Forest National Park”. Through an exclusive partnership between the City of Holbrook and the National Park Service we are able to provide runners with this opportunity.

 Your journey will take you past petrified wood that are millions of years old and through the majestic Painted Desert. Come run and experience one of the most unique marathons in the world.

  The Petrified Forest Marathon takes place on a scenic, point-to-point course during the cool fall air. It starts on the north end of the Petrified Forest National Park and, goes straight south winding through the park to the south end. The road through the Petrified Forest National Park is 26 miles long and is ideal for a Marathon.   Not ready for the full marathon yet?  Then the half marathon is just for you!  
  There are only 150 spots available for our 4th Annual race so register now before all the spots are gone.

Event details and schedule

 

The Petrified Forest Marathon will take place on October 21, 2017. The full marathon will start at 7:15AM from the north end of the park and finish at the south end.

 

The half-marathon will begin at 8am in the middle of the Park.

You will park your cars at the south end and be bussed to the north end for the start of the race. The busses will load at 6:00AM from the South Parking Lot. Parking is limited so carpooling is encouraged.

The course has lots of small hills and has a net altitude loss of about 400 Feet from the start to the finish. Their will be 15 aid stations along the route. (See Map http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/461913732)

The weather this time of year has an average high of 69 and and average low of 37 so it is very comparable to the St. George Marathon so plan accordingly.
