Overview

The 10k XTERRA trail run course takes you through the same trails as the 5k and beyond to the Papago Buttes north of Curry Road, just south of the Phoenix Zoo and Botanical Garden. You'll feel like you're out in the middle of the desert and red rocks, right in the middle of town! Turn around near Evelyn Hallman Park to wind your way back through the northern portion of the Lizard Trail.

Description

You won't have to travel far to enjoy beautiful sights and challenging heights in this kick-off to the 2023-2024 season. Join us in Tempe for either a 26K, 10K, or 5K run through the scenic Papago Buttes. 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 finishers in each age group.
