The marathon and half marathon are run on two separate courses however a total of 70 live bands will play on 39 Stages during the course of the race. Almost 5,000 volunteers will aid the runners along the course.

Triathlete and Olympian Matty Reed, and American star runners and U.S. Olympians Ryan Hall and Deena Kastor  are all racing the half marathon.

In a recent tweeter posting Reed wrote, "rock and roll has great races. and always have some super fast runners. Hall will destroy me tomorrow."

According to AZCenntral.com:

"Prize money is slightly lower this year: $17,500 for the marathon winners, $10,000 for second and $5,000 for third.

Ethiopians own eight of the 12 marathon titles although they were shut out last year when Kenya's Moses Kigen edged Ethiopian Tekeste Kebede by a half-second in 2:10:36. Among the women, Ukraine's Olena Shurkhno relegated Ethiopian Selomie Getnet to a third consecutive runner-up finish."
