Any runners or walkers who are interested in participating in any of the 21st annual Lost Dutchman Marathon running/walking events taking place in Apache Junction and Gold Canyon still have time to register.

Race distances offered in 2022 are: marathon (runners only), half marathon, 10K, 8K trail run, or 2-mile fun run. This year the 2-mile fun run will take place on Saturday, Feb. 19, and the other four distances will be offered on Sunday, Feb. 20.

Participants in the marathon, half marathon, 10K and 8K Trail Run will each receive a 2022 Lost Dutchman long sleeve tech T-shirt and a custom-designed 2022 Lost Dutchman finisher’s medal. Those running or walking in the 2-mile event will receive the long sleeve tech shirt.

Race officials are in need of several more volunteers to assist the runners and walkers Feb. 19-20. Each will receive a Lost Dutchman Race crew T-shirt and sincere thanks from all participants! Register to help at lostdutchmanmarathon.org.

The Lost Dutchman Running and Fitness Exposition will be held 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 19, at the Apache Junction Multi-Generational Center, 1035 N. Idaho Road in Apache Junction.
