Event Approved!

Update 11/24: We have received all of the necessary approvals to hold this race.

Race start times have been adjusted (and may still change slightly) to account for wave starts for all distances. These wave starts will consist of no more than 15 people per wave, starting in 5 minute increments. There will be NO kid's run in 2021.
Masks, wellness check, and social distancing will all be required. We will post the assigned wave times for runners as we near the race. Thank you!

Update 11/18: 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 San Tan Scramble. 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.
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 San Tan Scramble 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.
Thanks again for your patience and continued support!
