Dave McKay Memorial Half Marathon & 5K & Kids’ Dash
Our 38th Annual Dave McKay Memorial Half Marathon & 5K & Kids’ Dash is coming up on August 8! It begins at 7:30 a.m. from Wheeler Park in downtown Flagstaff.
The course is always an adventure with the monsoon madness and spectacular views. It is considered one of the most scenic and challenging half marathons in the Southwest and all proceeds benefit Northern Arizona children by helping BBBSF match them with appropriate adult mentors. Enjoy meeting runners at the FREE pasta dinner the Friday before the race. A special early packet pick up/registration will be held at Run Flagstaff, also at the pasta dinner, and again on race day, but prices go up race day.
