This weekend, more than 23,000 runners will descend on the Valley to participate in the annual Phoenix Rock 'n' Roll Marathon and half-marathon . (Good luck to those running this weekend from ABC15!)
The 5K and kids races take place on Saturday, Jan. 14. On Sunday, those running the 10K, half marathon and full marathon will hit the streets.
Saturday's races start at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m., and Sunday's races begin at 7:50 a.m.
On Sunday, the marathon will begin at the Arizona Center in downtown Phoenix (Van Buren and 2nd Street) and end on Rio Salado Parkway in Tempe. The half-marathon and 10K start at Tempe near University and College and end near Rio Salado Parkway and Ash.
