A Beautiful Weekend In Sedona

On Saturday morning, more than 2,000 runners hit the roads—both paved and not—for the Sedona Marathon to pound out one of four distances: 5K, 10K, half and full marathons. With its 4,500-foot elevation and penchant for inclines, including one to the finish, the Arizona town lures racers with the motto, “If the hills don’t take your breath away, the scenery will.” From start to finish, the out-and-back courses have stunning views of the area’s signature red rock. Women’s Running traveled to Sedona this year to cheer on the racers, who are predominantly female.
