It has a new name but it is the same great race. The BMO Harris Bank Mesa-PHX Marathon has changed its name to better reflect that the race takes place in the city of Mesa. The marathon will be on Saturday, Feb. 25 at 6:30 a.m. The 26-mile race begins on Usery Pass Road and ends at Mesa Riverview. There will also be a half marathon, a 10K race and a Kids 1K fun run.
“The Mesa-PHX Marathon is one of my favorite races,” Mayor John Giles said. “The route shows off some of the East Valley’s best views and I can’t wait to participate again this year.”
The BMO Harris Bank Mesa-PHX Marathon is USA Track and Field (USATF) sanctioned and certified as a Boston Qualifier. For more information about the event, visit www.thephoenixmarathon.com.
