Features Geological Significance

Out-and-back on canal will the on the west side only.

Overview

The 26k has a little bit of everything: desert, water, nature, and even a glimpse of urban life. Take the 10k course and add a jaunt up the historic Crosscut Canal. Don't forget to check for the bighorn sheep on the buttes as you pass the Phoenix Zoo. Continue up the canal right behind the gorgeous Desert Botanical Garden, return to wind your way through the scenic buttes and back to North Linear Park, and then . . . do it all again!

Description

All participants will receive a huge post-race breakfast, a super cool race tee and finisher medal, as well as entry into fun post-race festivities. Awards for overall top male and female finishers all three distances. Awards for the top 3 in each age group for the 26k and 10k.
