‘How do I get a news story into your newspaper?’

Yavapai College’s 10-year plan aims to rob Verde Valley

The 10-year plan recently released by Yavapai College is great — for students living in Prescott and Prescott Valley.

Good luck to all the runners in the Sedona Marathon

For nine years, runners from around the world have laced up their sneakers and hit the asphalt of West Sedona to compete in the annual Sedona Marathon.

Athletes young and old will run one of four races, anywhere from a short 5 kilometers to a full marathon of 26.2 miles — or 42.195 kilometers — on Saturday, Feb. 2.


Road closures for marathon are not invasion of privacy

The ninth annual Sedona Marathon comes to Sedona this Saturday, Feb. 1.

More than 2,000 runners will hit the track on Saturday morning, running not just for first place, but pitting themselves against the track. The race starts behind the Sedona campus of Verde Valley Medical Center and continues out onto U.S. Forest Service land and back.

While the 26.2-mile marathon is the eponymous race for the hardcore runners, many more run the 13.1-mile half-marathon, while families run the 10K and 5K races. Many of the runners come from outside the Verde Valley, making the trek from around the country and the state to participate in the run. A good number of the short-distance runners are locals looking for a family event on an otherwise quiet February weekend.…
