Lost Dutchman Marathon extends its heartfelt thank you to the board, committee, sponsors and over 800 volunteers throughout the weekend events, according to the release. “Without them we wouldn’t be able to host such a well-organized event that keeps runners coming back year after year,” Board President Grady McEachern said in the release. Next year’s race will take place Feb. 19, 2019.
