Overview

No additional obstacles needed on this course; Mother Nature has already done all the work. The 8k course is a little easier on the calves but is challenging just the same. The rolling hills down San Tan, Hedgehog, and Moonlight trails brings you through the creosote flats and saguaro forest. All participants receive a huge post-race breakfast, a super cool race tee and finisher medal, as well as entry into fun post-race festivities.

Description

8k Start Time: 08:30

A single clockwise loop encompassing the Hedgehog, San Tan, and Moonlight trails.

Just outside the main parking area at San Tan Trailhead looking west.

Nice view of the southern hills from the top of the saddle.  A good place to rest if needed on a comfortable bench!
