About The Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona
The Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona Half Marathon in Phoenix, Arizona on January 14th, 2023 is an incredible race for runners of all levels. The route is well-marked and provides a great mix of flat terrain with some challenging hills that test your endurance. The scenery along the course provides breathtaking views of the desert landscape and surrounding mountains.
The weather in Phoenix during this time of year is usually mild to warm with temperatures ranging from mid 50s F to low 70s F (10-22 C). Although it may be sunny out, there can sometimes be a light breeze which helps keep you cool throughout the race. This makes for ideal running conditions as long as you come prepared with sunscreen and other protective gear!
The crowds are always very enthusiastic and supportive throughout the entire event. They cheer from start to finish line and help motivate runners by offering words of encouragement when needed most. There are also many volunteers at each water station who are happy to assist if necessary – something that I have found especially helpful during my last few races here!
Overall, Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona Half Marathon is one of my favorite races due its unique route, beautiful scenery, excellent support staff/volunteers, and perfect weather conditions for running! If you’re looking for a fun yet challenging half marathon experience then this should definitely be on your list!
