2012 Brian Mickelsen Memorial Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K & 2 Mile:
The Brian Mickelsen Memorial Run/Walk has evolved from humble beginnings as the Verde/Mingus Blowout 10K to include four separate races: 2-Mile, 10K, half marathon and a new full marathon.
In 1992 the City of Cottonwood held the first Verde/Mingus Blowout 10K/2 Mile. The original 10K course started at Riverfront Park, ran through Old Town Cottonwood, took Bent River Road and found its way back to the start line.
Today this route compares more to the Marathon course than it does the current 10K route but you can see how the event in 1992 laid the foundation for the Brian Mickelsen Memorial Run/Walk.
The marathon will follow the half marathon course out to Tuzigoot Road and up Sycamore Canyon Road. Instead of looping back toward the monument the route continues down Sycamore Canyon Road for a 6.6 mile out and back then reenters on the half marathon route.
This route will utilize dirt roads, paved roads and trails for a great variety on the scenic course.
