Rio Salado Trail Run 15K | 10K |5K
COVID-19 – For everyone’s safety and protection, this year, with the surging COVID-19 infection rate and state and city limitations, Rio Salado Trail Run has gone to a virtual event. We will be offering deferrals into the next physical event on February 5, 2022, transfers into this year’s virtual event, or full refunds for those already registered in this year’s physical event.
Looking for a more interactive virtual experience? Help us beta test the OpenRace app on your mobile IOS GPS device. Make sure you have registered by Thursday, February 4, 2021 to participate. Instructions for downloading and using the app will be sent in a participant reminder in advance of event day. Then, make sure you are logged in to the correct event race category prior to the start of the race and countdown to the start with the app. Open race will start you, track you against other race participants throughout the race, and will let you know you have finished the race upon completing the required distance.
When not wanting to participate in OpenRace or when needing to use a device other than IOS to track your results, remember to record your results after completing.
Become one with nature during this unique trail run near downtown Phoenix, Arizona! Maybe you’ll catch a glimpse of one of the Burrowing Owls being reintroduced or one of many other neat creatures the salt river has to offer you as you work your way through the Rio Salado Habitat Restoration area. Now that’s cool!
What’s even cooler, you’ll know you’re supporting the continuous revegetation efforts of the Rio Salado Habitat, which helps the Rio Salado Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary and more. So, year after year you can take pride as you run or walk this unique habitat and watch the changes happening knowing you have a hand in helping to protect and improve it.
Courses wind up and down, along and across, the Rio Salado Salt River and its banks. Choose from the chip-timed 15K, 10K or 5K, and you’ll find yourself running or walking a challenging and fun mixed terrain looping course with varying elevations.
