About Scottsdale’s Beat the Heat
The race was originally conceived as a by-product of a Scottsdale Tourism brainstorm session about how to attract more visitors to the city during summer months. Race organizers believed an extreme marketing approach displaying the ultimate way people could experience the heat would encourage others to come enjoy the community’s great hotels, resorts and night life. It worked as some 1,100 runners braved the hot temperatures in 2013 to participate. The race hasn’t been staged since 2013.
