Marathoners looking for their place in the sun need look no further than the fourth annual Yuma Territorial Marathon and Half Marathon, coming up January 26th.
With a relatively straight course that shows less than 75 feet in elevation change, this race is a great qualifier for Boston. Since the race takes place in what Guinness World Records has certified as the sunniest place in the world, a bright day is likely – and a warm welcome guaranteed.
This is the fourth running of the annual races organized by the Caballeros de Yuma, a nonprofit civic organization that's renowned throughout the area for its outstanding events. Both races start and finish at Cocopah Casino.
