We have a new course for 2020.  In order to help with local traffic we have come up with an awesome new course that will still challenge participants, offer great views and not impact local residents.

Half Marathon participants will start on Innovation Dr and run Southwest on N Vistoso Park Rd, participants turn left until reaching the turn around point.  On the way back runners will turn right on E Innovation Dr and continue straight until turning left on E Rancho Vistoso in this section, runners will run against traffic for about 5.5 miles until reaching the turn around point to come back the same side of the road  this time running with traffic until turning right on E Innovation Dr to finish at the same spot as the starting location.

Awards will be given to the top 3 overall male and female and in the following age group categories.

19 and Under
70 and Over

No double dipping. Participant is responsible to verify their time and finish position. No adjustments will be made to results once awards have been given out.  Award winner must be present to get their award.  Awards will not be mailed.

All participants are celebrated with an Official Finisher’s Medal
