Come experience the beauty of desert trail running at night! Sinister Night Runs is the 1st race in the Insominac Night Trail Run Series. You can complete one race in the series or run all six! All the Sinister Night Run distances are held on a 9 kilometer loop out at San Tan Mountain Regional Park in Queen Creek, Arizona. The course utilizes the San Tan, Hedgehog & Littleleaf Trails. The 27K runners will complete 3 loops, 18K will complete 2 loops and the 54K ultra division will complete 6 loops, passing through the start/finish line after each lap! The course features smooth runnable trails with just a few rollers for fun.
All participants will need to follow some specific COVID-19 guidelines including agreeing not to attend if exhibiting any symptoms of or testing positive for COVID-19 within 14 days prior to the event. All participants will be subject to a health screening and temperature test in order to enter the starting corral.
Runners must wear a mask around our staging area up until the time they are in the starting corral. Runners must maintain social distancing before and after the event as well as on course as much as possible. We recommend passing on wider sections of the trail and giving notice to other participants. Please communicate.
