ABOUT THE COURSE ROUTES

Whether you are running to win or doing a fun, leisurely run or walk, you are sure to enjoy the beauty of the South Mountain, the Sierra Estrella Mountain ranges, Cesar Chavez Park, and Alvord Lake with its very own island.

The chip-timed 10K and 5K courses use a mixture of concrete and dirt trails with a couple of stretches across paved streets. Wind your way through Cesar Chavez Park and Montana Vista and experience desert trails and grassy areas. The 1-Mile fun run (not timed) uses paved paths around Alvord Lake. The 10K also goes around Alvord Lake.

Course routes may vary slightly on race day and will be well marked to help keep you on track.

Water will be available for runners and walkers at the start and finish with water stations along the 10K and 5K course routes – view water stations locations on the course maps.

Restrooms are available near the start, finish, and along the course routes – view restroom locations on the course maps.

The course routes and aid stations may vary slightly on race day and will be well marked to help keep you on course.

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 Spooner Physical Therapy or a race crew member. If you believe you or someone else may be experiencing a life-threatening emergency, call 911 immediately.
