A Remarkable Half Marathon Experience in a Remarkable Destination 
ADC Backdrop

Our Half Marathon, Quarter Marathon (Half of a Half) and 5k courses are in an amazing setting with breathtaking views. It is known as the most scenic Arizona race event of the year and takes place just north of Tucson in Oro Valley, March 22, 2015.  


Oro Valley offers world-class cycling, running, swimming, hiking, spas, golf and some of the most stunning desert sunsets on Earth. There's a reason Bloomberg Businessweek recently named Oro Valley the best place to raise kids in Arizona. The community boasts some of the finest schools in the state as well as first-class recreational amenities. Oro Valley is one of the safest communities in the nation.


Oro Valley is just outside of Tucson, Arizona. Tucson's unique attractions and accommodations beckon you to discover and explore and the arts and culture scene that make Tucson a place that's authentic and comfortable. Savor the unapologetic passion for food that inspires Tucson's cuisine, or come as you are and experience the vibrant nightlife. An oasis from the unoriginal and pretentious, Tucson is a place that you want to be. 

Check this Tucson video out.

Come join us for a remarkable experience and a fantastic vacation. I can't wait to meet you at the start line and celebrate you at the Finish Line!


Giddy Up,
