Now, thirty-eight years running! 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 ongoing goal is to maintain all of the previous race highlights and create the perfect event 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, "Run well, then Let Them Eat Pancakes”.
