Important Update- 11/3

Update - 11/3: We are opening up credit card processing for registrations so when you register, your card will be charged and you'll be added directly to the entrant's list. All current participants and waitlist runners have been emailed and invited to register.

10/20: New levels of permitting through Maricopa County (where this race is held) are under way and that has caused a delay in receiving confirmation for Punisher. Once we hear back from the Department of Health as well as the Planning and Development office from Maricopa County, we are hopeful the parks & recreation department will be able to approve our permit pretty quickly. Unfortunately, we don't have a date on these approvals but do appreciate your patience as we navigate these new processes.

In the meantime, all credit card charges have been paused during the registration process. This means that you can sign up for your respective distance risk-free. Once we are 100% sure the event will happen, we'll send you an invite to register from Ultrasignup. When you accept the invite, your credit card is charged and you are officially placed on the entrant's list. You are able to decline the invite at that point as well at no cost.
9/28: We are continuing to work with Maricopa County on permitting approvals for this event. Additional/new guidelines are being reviewed by the county parks and recreation department. An update for us (and then you) is expected around October 7th.
In the meantime, as you sign up for Punisher, you are added to the waitlist. Once we are 100% sure the event will take place, you'll receive an invite to register from Ultrasignup. At that point, when you accept the invite, your credit card will be charged and you'll be officially added to the entrant's list. It's essentially our way of offering a risk free way for you to get your name on the list now rather than waiting and possibly not being able to race if/when our capacity restrictions are provided to us. Your credit card will only be charged when you accept the invitation to register when that time comes.

Thank you again for your patience and continued support!

----------------------------------------------This event is NOT sold out.

Due to the uncertainty with COVID-19 we have made registration for this event a waitlist only because we feel it is irresponsible to continue to collect registration fees. We have no plans to cancel or reschedule this event and the event is not sold out as this page suggests. If the race goes on as planned, you will receive an email from Ultrasignup asking you to accept the invitation to register for this race. No money will be collected until you accept this registration. Please continue to check back for updates!

Double Down

Two races, one day! Punisher is the eighth race in the Insomniac Night Trail Run Series.
This race will be held on the same day as the Pass Mountain Trail Runs, part of the Desert Runner Trail Series.

Course Summary

All races are held on a 9 kilometer loop of the Noso, Blevins, Moon Rock, Levee, Spillway, Cat Peaks and Cat Peaks Pass Trails. The 30K runners will complete 3 loops, passing through the start/finish line after each lap! The course features a mix of smooth runnable trails with just a few rollers and rocks for fun.

To help bridge the gap in the middle distances, we've added a 20 Km option!

Race Information

Anything else you may need to know is located on our Punisher Night Runs website! Information on the website includes: course maps, race day schedule, pacer & crew information, race perks, and more.

We cannot produce these trail runs without the help of our amazing volunteer team. You can even help and run on race day. 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: Punisher Night Runs Volunteer Form
