About the event
Run through Chiricahua National Monument and enjoy the “wonderland of rocks” and stacked hoodoos. Course is a single track trail run with breathtaking views (not just because of the elevation changes!) Both distances start 1 mile from the entrance of Chiricahua National Monument along Hwy 181. As soon as runners enter the park, they hit the trail system. If participating in the full 30K distance, runners will see the entire perimeter of trails (lollipop course) as they reach the summit at Masai Point and then make their way back down towards the finish line.
The 13K runners will enjoy a beautiful out and back route that showcases the ranchland and historic buildings inside the monument.
Hang out after at the start/finish. We'll have burritos and other snacks at the finish line.
This is a cupless event! You must bring your own water system and each aid station will be stocked with water and gatorade and snacks, but no cups! Please plan accordingly! There are 3 Aid Stations on the 30K Course - Mile 4, Mile 10 and Mile 14. The 13K will see Aid at the midway point.
