Formerly known as the Brian Mickelson Marathon which began in 2007, the Vintage Run/Walk Half Marathon, 10k, 5k, and 2 Mile race event was introduced in 2019 as a way to reinvigorate the community and bring to it a whole new running experience.
Providing the amazing opportunity for runners to journey through the heart and beauty of Arizona’s Wine Country, this race which takes place in Cottonwood, Arizona, offers four unique and breathtaking courses.
Highlighting the natural beauty of Collingwood and surrounding areas, runners can expect to run through historical city landmarks and National monuments, open backroads surrounded by Arizona landscapes, and a series of wooded trails, some of which provide spectacular views of the Verde River.
Beginning and ending at Riverfront Park at 1284 E Riverfront Road, runners line up at 7:00 am sharp to embark on quite the scenic and loopy course, with several ins-and-outs, twists, and turns.
First, it’s onto the first long section of the course; through the back trails of Collingwood City until reaching E Pinal Street. It’s then immediately back on to the trails, crossing over Blowout Creek before looping back onto N 10th Street.
From there, it’s a loop through Mabery Ranch Road before reaching Dead Horse Ranch State Park. Onward, runners will then journey through a series of twists and turns via Quail Campground, Red-Tail Hawk Campground, Blackhawk Loop Campground, and Verde River Greenway.
Finally, it’s a retrace of footsteps back onto N 10th Street, heading back to Riverfront Park to finish.
So, if you want to be a part of an incredibly vibrant community racing event in the heart of Arizona’s Wine Country, this race is surely for you!
