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.
The Yuma Territorial Marathon was the 601st largest marathon in the U.S. last year and was the 537th largest in 2015.
This year 16.1% of finishers qualified for the Boston Marathon and 16.7% of runners qualified for Boston in 2016.
This gives the Yuma Territorial Marathon the 68th highest percentage of Boston Marathon qualifiers in the U.S. last year and the 32nd highest percentage so far in 2017.
