Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K runners will start and finish at the airport, with views of the White Tank Mountains on the outgoing section of the out-and-back courses.

The 5th Annual Buckeye Marathon / Half Marathon / 10K / 5K / Obstacle Course will take place on December 8, 2018.  All distances will end at the Buckeye Municipal Airport.  The Half Marathon, 10K, 5K, and Obstacle Course will also begin at the airport, with the Marathon course starting at Sun City Festival Baseball Complex in the Sun City Festival community (Marathoners: please park at the Baseball Complex at Sun City Festival - transportation will be provided from the finish line to the start line for marathon participants after the race).
