The destination race is a member of Capstone Event Group’s Resort Race Collection, a group of exclusive destination race experiences hosted and produced in partnership with the most iconic and magnificent hotels in the world.
This luxury race weekend experience is limited to 1,000 participants. Guests may choose from one of three race distances: a 5k, 10k, or half marathon, with each start and finish just steps from the recently redesigned accommodations and soon-to-be completed, new offerings of the 250-acre property, located at the base of Camelback Mountain. A limited number of rooms at a special group rate are available on a first come, first served basis.
“The Phoenician Half Marathon provides runners and their families an experience that is on a level yet to be seen in the world of participatory endurance sports,” said John Kane, CEO of Capstone Event Group. “Convenience and choice are core elements of any first-class experience. Here, each guest can enjoy a bevy of amenities and activities – be it participating in the race, relaxing with a spa treatment, hitting the golf course or unwinding in a spacious and stylish guestroom – just as they desire.”
Between the new and extensive Phoenician property renovations and an exceptional array of resort activities, participants will embrace a full luxury race weekend experience from arrival through departure. A post-race champagne brunch will cap off the event, featuring cuisine prepared by the resort’s award-winning culinary team, complemented by a live band.
The race route will also take individuals across a beautiful Sonoran setting marked by charming Valley neighborhoods, canals and breathtaking mountain views.
Every race reservation includes limited edition Phoenician Half Marathon apparel, a finisher medal and admittance to the champagne brunch and party. Phoenician race guests will also enjoy access to the resort’s amenities and activities.
