The Verrado community is proud to sponsor the IMS Arizona Marathon Full/Half/Relay/5k. On Sunday, February 16th, the IMS Arizona Marathon, MasterBlock Half Marathon, Wal-Mart Marathon Relay and Cancer Treatment Centers 5k, will be sweeping through the West Valley.
The start of the Full IMS Arizona Marathon will take place in Verrado at 21029 West Main Street in Buckeye. The race will wind its way through the picturesque desert scenery in the shadows of the Estrella and White Tank Mountains. The unique course will inspire runners along this Boston Marathon qualifier course that guides runners from Verrado through Goodyear, Avondale, Litchfield Park, Phoenix, and Glenadale to finish at the Westgate Entertainment District.
The half marathon starts nearby, just moments from DMB Associates’ other West Valley Community, Marley Park, at the Surprise Recreation Campus at 15960 N. Bullard Avenue. The half marathon wraps up in the same area as the full – the runners will see the University of Phoenix Stadium, home of the Arizona Cardinals, Super Bowl XLII, and the Phoenix Coyotes, as they approach the end of the race.
