Once again, Verrado® was honored to sponsor the IMS Half, Relay, and Full Marathon as well as host the start line for the Full and Relay Marathon participants. Hundreds of eager racers gathered at The Center on Main™ allowing guests to stay warm, stretch and use the facilities prior to the 7:00 AM start. Staged around the Village Green, the runners, joggers and walkers anxiously huddled as the sun came up.

The starting pistol was fired, and away they went. 500 participants, including dozens of Verrado residents, earned medals after completing the 26.2 mile course which passed through eight cities and a jaunt through Luke Air Force Base. The 8th Annual IMS Half Marathon finished at Westgate Entertainment District where supporters cheered as their loved ones crossed the finish line. To date, the proceeds from this event have helped contribute over $200,000 to West Valley charities.

Thank you to the many volunteers who were up bright and early to provide a warm welcome and genuine Verrado spirit to participants as they arrived.

Check out the race RESULTS and congratulate neighbors who conquered these challenging events!
