Rock 'n' Roll Arizona

Rock \'n\' Roll Arizona

You won’t participate in many races more fun and exhilarating than the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon or 1/2 marathon. It’s enjoyable for all fitness levels; the Rock ‘n’ Roll races are held across the country and are known for their live music and excitement along the courses. The one held in Arizona is a rather flat course that goes through Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Tempe. If you’re not up for a marathon or half marathon, there’s also a 5K, a 10K, and a kids race. Depending on the race, registration fees range from $65-$129. Even if you opt to cheer on the sidelines, it’s truly an event that’s fun for all!
