Course Description

The out and back Yuma Territorial Marathon course is held mostly on the shoulder of Highway 95. Marathoners will leave the Cocopah Indian Reservation and pass through Somerton, Arizona. The course continues through Gadsden, Arizona near the border of Mexico and into the city limits of San Luis, Arizona. Runners will then return using the same route.

The course drops approximately 75 feet after about the two mile mark, continues on a mostly flat course on an out-and-back, and then climbs the same hill - this time at the 24 mile mark. The final miles are mostly flat back to the finish.
