Set to welcome more than 2,500 runners to the Sedona, Arizona, area, along with their family and friends, the 7th Annual Sedona Marathon will be taking place on Saturday, February, 4, 2012. Good Morning America named Sedona one of the Top 10 most beautiful cities in the United States, and runners will get to see why as they sprint through the Coconino National Forest District, known for those renowned red rock formations, and then onto the streets of Sedona, which has become a sizzling spa hub. Whether you are headed there to run or just to take in the scenery, what better way to enjoy a mini-vacation than to take a trip to one of the many fabulous spas Sedona has to offer?
