It's Whiskey Row Marathon Day!

05 May 2012  

Today's the day. Put on your running - and dancing - shoes and come on down!

The 34th Annual Whiskey Row Marathon (WRM) is underway right now, with the early runners starting at 5 am.

This 26.2 mile race will cover altitude from 5000-7000 feet, and will feature hundreds of runners. At 7 am the Half Marathon starts, and the 10K begins at 7:30. There's also a 2 Mile Fun Run which will begin at 7:40 AM.

With the exception of the 2 Mile Fun Run, all the races are timed.

There are also lots of festivities that happening downtown, since the WRM happens to coincide with Cinco de Mayo. The After Party is hosted by the Prescott Eagles Aerie 3600 group, and includes live music, food and beverage garden, face painting, the Freedom Station jump house, Folklorico dancers, tamales and much more.

Live music will be provided by Coatimundi at 4, The Wes Williams Band, starting at 6 pm, Filabusta at 8 pm.

Here's a sample of the Wes Williams Band:
