The Mesa-Phoenix Marathon will be held on Saturday, February 26th with a start time on 6:30am. The marathon will start at Usery Mountain and end at Alma School/Bass Pro Drive in Mesa.
There will be road closures all along Mesa starting at 4am Saturday, February 26th. The streets will reopen in stages as runners make their way through the city. All of the streets will be reopened by 1:30pm on Saturday.
If you have some traveling to do during the race hours, you should expect delays. To avoid the race completely we recommend using the 202 Red Mountain Freeway (north and east borders), the 101 Price Freeway (west border), and the US 60 (south border).
The BMO Harris Mesa-Phoenix Marathon Foundation aims to provide scholarships to high school students who have participated in running related athletics, and are aiming to pursue a higher education.
