Welcome to the 8th annual Whiskey Basin Trail Runs! These endurance runs take place in and around the mile city of Prescott, Arizona along the scenic Prescott Circle Trail which encompasses the entire town. The point to point 91-kilometer trail run runs the entire circle loop starting and finishing at Watson Lake Park.
Courses for 30K & 60K return to the Prescott Circle Trail in 2023!
All distances finish at Watson Lake with the majestic Granite Dell rock formation serving as the finish line view.
The Most Beautiful & Challenging 10K and Half
An ultra challenge packed into 13 miles! Runners exclaim that this 10K and Half Marathon is the "most difficult, most beautiful, and most unexpected" course they've ever run.

There are a total of 35 camping sites and will be on a first come first serve basis through the registration process. Reserve now, these sell out fast!
We cannot produce these trail runs without the help of our amazing volunteer team. You can even help and run on race day. If you 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 goody and Aravaipa Race Credits. You can see our current opportunities and signup here: Whiskey Basin Volunteer Form
