This race starts and finishes at the South Mountain Activity Center in Phoenix. Take Central Avenue two miles south of Baseline Road to the park.

Registration begins at 5:30 a.m.  Please plan to arrive early! You will need the parking pass – Park Rangers will be checking each vehicle before entering the park. This can cause a backup in traffic, especially nearing gun time.

South Mountain Park requires all runners to be off the road by 10:00 a.m. Thus runners in the 20K must be able to maintain at least a 17 minute-per-mile pace. If you cannot maintain this pace for the 20K race, please choose a shorter distance.
