The Gilbert Half Marathon

The Gilbert Half Marathon

The Gilbert Half Marathon will run through the heart of Gilbert, Arizona. The course is flat and fast making this a great first time experience or a PR possibility. The course will begin at Higley High School, run along the corn fields for a rural feel, run Gilbert’s most popular canals, run through Gilbert’s premiere parks–Riparian Preserve and Freestone, then finish along side the Gilbert Days Parade.

There will be a Gear check for the half marathon ONLY. Use your runner bag provided or a personal bag and attach the bib gear check tear-off tab. Gear return will be at the finish line staging area. East Valley Runners will provide pacers for the half marathon for the following times: 1:30, 1:40, 1:50, 2:00, 2:10, 2:20 & 2:30.
