Lost Dutchman Marathon Happening Presidents’ Day Weekend




The 18th annual Lost Dutchman Marathon will be held Sunday, February 17. The marathon, associated races and activities are held every Presidents’ Day weekend in Apache Junction. The event features a prerace campfire, and includes a 2 Mile Fun Run, 8K Trail Run, 10K and Half Marathon, in addition to the marathon itself.

Run at the base of Superstition Mountain, near the rumored site of the legendary Lost Dutchman Mine, this event is a favorite of serious marathoners and casual runners alike. The marathon follows a USA Track & Field-certified course and can be used as a qualifier for the Boston Marathon. 

The Lost Dutchman Marathon Inc. is a public charity run by an all-volunteer board of directors and officers, with proceeds directed to local youth organizations focused on the economically disadvantaged. Since the Lost Dutchman Marathon’s inception in 2002, more than $588,000 has been donated to various local youth organizations.

The Lost Dutchman Marathon is Arizona’s longest running destination marathon, and has been voted Best Marathon of the Valley 2018 by Phoenix Magazine. Not only do people travel from all over the U.S. to run in this race, but come from all over the world.
