“Holy Hotfoot batman, the Hamster is back!” The hottest fixed time race returns to Nardini Manor this May! Participants choose between the 24 Hour, 12 Hour or 6 Hour fixed-time events and put their hot feet to the test on the 500 meter USATF certified course (road). The course is a flat crushed gravel loop that winds is way around the grounds of century-old manor. Join us for high jinx at the Hamster!


Nardini Manor is a century-old country estate situated on five and a half acres of land that includes a maze and a custom-built running path. The property is located in an area of farmland, just South of I-10 in Buckeye, Arizona.

Nardini Manor’s owner Rodger Wrublik, a local ultrarunner and instrumental in Aravaipa Running’s history, custom built the running path in 2003 for use around the perimeter of the property.

The Aid Station tent will be easily accessible right on the course. The timing tent will be just West of the Aid Station with timing mats that you must cross each loop. You can setup your own tent in front of the manor for no charge.


Expect HOT conditions during the day with temperatures over 100 degrees Fahrenheit with slightly cooler night-time temperatures in the 80s. This isn’t called the Hotfoot Hamster for nothing! Please be prepared for hot, exposed conditions during the day. We will have plenty of ice and water but highly recommend that you bring clothing that protects you from the sun.
