Run through Chiricahua National Monument and enjoy the “wonderland of rocks” and stacked hoodoos. Course is a single track trail run with breathtaking views (not just because of the elevation changes!) Both distances start 1 mile from the entrance of Chiricahua National Monument along Hwy 191. As soon as runners enter the park, they hit the trail system. If participating in the full 30K distance, runners will see the entire perimeter of trails (lollipop course) as they reach the summit at Masai Point and then make their way back down towards the finish line. The views in this distance are epic!
The 13K runners will enjoy a beautiful out and back route that showcases the ranch land and historic buildings inside the monument. This distance does not take you into the rocks of the monument.
A one of a kind endurance run in Southeastern Arizona and is limited to 200 runners on this event!
