About the 5K Course

The course is fast mixed terrain using paved and dirt paths that loop with a minimal elevation change located in Arcadia, an east central-Phoenix neighborhood. This course is perfect for attempting a PR (personal record or personal best) or having a fun, leisurely run, walk, or wheel. Water will be available for runners and walkers at the start, finish, and midpoint. Restrooms are available near the start, finish, and expo area. Sports strollers, running chairs, handcycles, and sports wheelchairs are allowed on the course. No pets are allowed at this event. Run or walk within 1 hour and 15 minutes from the race start time. The course may vary slightly on race day and will be well marked to help keep you on course.

5K Course Directions

From the Arizona Falls 5K Start Line on the north canal bank northwest of Indian School Road between North 56th Street and North 60th Street, head northeast along the north canal bank to North 68th Street, crossing over the footbridge to the south side of the canal just before reaching North 68th Street. Head southwest along the south canal bank to the Arizona Falls Finish Line.

Teams

The initial member registering for the race will be able to create their team during registration. Additional members will then select their team from the team drop-down. Each team member’s race result will indicate their team name, so you do not need to qualify for team results to be recognized as a team. To compete, you must have at least five members. A team qualifies for group results when it has at least five members with valid race results. That team’s top five qualifying members are used to compute the team’s overall placement.

Medical

A first aid kit will be available at the start and finish for minor incidents. If you or someone you are observing needs medical assistance, please notify a race crew member. If you believe you or someone else may be experiencing a life-threatening emergency, call 911 immediately.

Pricing Schedule

Skip packet pickup, crowds, and lines on race day. Optionally select to have your race packet mailed directly to you for a $15 shipping and handling fee when registering before December 31, 2022. Packages begin shipping on Monday before the event.
