We started the Full Moon waves back in 2018 when our races kept falling on full moon weekends. We had such a great time watching our runners push themselves through the night in two separate races, we decided to keep offering the second run, with or without the full moon. Welcome to the Insomniac Waves! The Insomniac Waves at Hypnosis will allow runners to head out under an almost new moon, making the blanket of stars above all the brighter as you run either the 14K or 6K loop. It's a unique opportunity to run in the middle of the night!
NEW Course Summary
Hypnosis is moving to a NEW COURSE in 2020! All runs will be staged out of the main park, at the Coldwater Trailhead parking lot. We're excited to introduce this new route, highlighting some of the great trails of Estrella Mountain Park. Experience Butterfield, Gadsen, Coldwater, Dysart, and Rainbow Valley trails...all depending on your chosen distance. These new routes are flowy, fun, and challenging enough to keep it interesting. Come experience the beauty of desert trail running at night!
Hypnosis Night Runs is the 4th race in the Insomniac Night Trail Run Series. You can complete one race in the series or do all five core races!
Anything else you may need to know is located on our Hypnosis Night Runs website! Information on the website includes: course maps, race day schedule, pacer & crew information, race perks, and more.

If yo would like to join our volunteer team, we are looking for help with event setup, aid station captains, aid station helpers, timing, and event breakdown. Volunteer perks include a piece of Aravaipa merchandise or racy goodie and Aravaipa Race Credits. You can see our current opportunities and signup here: Hypnosis Night Runs Volunteer Form
