Now, thirty-eight years running! Come enjoy the rich history of the Runner's Den Pancake Run and join us for one of the oldest and most popular events on the Valley running calendar. Originally staged in 1979 to showcase the talents of marathon legend Bill Rodgers and the opening of Paradise Valley Mall, our event remains a Valley classic. Our continuing goal is to maintain all of the previous race highlights and again create the perfect race to run a PR just prior to enjoying the best pancakes on earth. And of course, IHOP has again joined us to present our race theme, "It's Time To Get Your Syrup On!”.
