Serious runners will want to plan on serious training before tackling the Mount Lemmon Marathon on October 17, 2010, but what a thrill, what spectacular scenery, and what an accomplishment for those who choose either the 1/2 or full marathon! Jeremiah Inn Bed and Breakfast plans to offer their participating guests transportation to and from the bus loading area and after their soak in the whirlpool, a celebratory breakfast at dinner, since the 4:30am departure for the bus zone will preclude a big breakfast that morning.
Running clubs are encouraged to call soon and book their group of runners into Jeremiah Inn. With four guests rooms (one is a 2-room suite) and eight separate beds, a pool, and beautiful views, the inn is ideal. We are located 1 mile from the start of the course and a great place to stay while training. The road will be open to runners on race day for 10 hours and with the 6000 foot elevation gain it will be an extraordinary race!
The October date insures ideal weather at the base and top. This photo was taken near Summerhaven last October, so fall color will be evident in the aspens.
