The 2017 Canyon City Marathon in Azusa Is Coming

Canyon City Marathon

The City of Azusa and the Azusa Police Department are once again proud to welcome the 2017 Revel Canyon City Marathon to our beautiful community. We want everyone to have an enjoyable and safe experience while top athletes compete to qualify for the 2019 Boston City Marathon.

Where Is The Marathon Being Run?

The marathon will start at the top of Highway 39 in the San Gabriel Mountains, just south of Highway 2.

The athletes will run south on Highway 39 to the entrance of the canyon. From there, they will continue running south on Azusa Avenue to 9th Street. They'll make a left turn and head east on 9th Street then south on Palm Drive. From Palm Drive, runners will turn onto Foothill Blvd and finish the race on Alameda Ave directly west of Azusa City Hall.

What Time Is The Marathon?

The competitors will start the race at 7 am. However, Highway 39 will be closed at 6:15 am, and all other roadways will be closed at 7 am. We anticipate re-opening all roadways by 1:30 pm, with the exception of Alameda Ave, between Foothill Blvd and the Azusa PD building. This small section will remain closed until 5:00 pm.

*The entire impact time on the city will be between 5 am and 5 pm.

Where Can Competitors Park?

  • Full Marathon participants will park in the old drive-in lot at Azusa Pacific University. Access to this parking lot can be made at the intersection of Foothill Boulevard and Rockvale Avenue.
  • Half Marathon participants will park in the parking structure directly east of Target, as well as in the Target parking facility.

Where Can Spectators Park?

  • NO PARKING on Foothill Boulevard between Citrus Avenue and Azusa Avenue.
  • NO PARKING on Azusa/San Gabriel Canyon Road (Highway 39), north of Sierra Madre Avenue

Who Is REVEL?

REVEL is a series of running events that is gaining a broad presence in the running world by distinguishing its races in a number of ways, including its unique courses, emphasis on runner experience, and partnerships with local communities, nonprofit organizations, sponsors, and government agencies.

REVEL races can best be described by two words: Fast & Beautiful. Their events take place in the most beautiful venues available in the areas in which they are held. REVEL races seek to maximize the time the runners spend running in canyons, forests, state or national parks, and so forth. In addition, the downhill nature of REVEL races provides a unique opportunity for runners to achieve personal best times and qualify for exclusive events.

In addition to providing unforgettable experiences for their runners, REVEL races also deliver value to the communities who graciously host their events. Each REVEL race brings significant financial benefits to local economies, provides an opportunity for communities to brand themselves, and creates a healthier and more fitness-friendly community. REVEL Canyon City is proud to donate proceeds from registration fees to the City of Azusa Recreation and Family Services programs.
