Super Sunday on the Trails

Jan. 30, 2015

Some people consider Super Bowl Sunday a holiday of sorts – or at least a day to stay in and watch the football game. Not the runners in the XTERRA SoCal and Arizona Trail Run Series. Both of those series will host races this Sunday – the same day as Super Bowl.

The Arizona Series will host the XTERRA McDowell Mountain 7 and 24K Trail Runs in Fountain Hills, Ariz., less than an hour away from where the big game is being played in Phoenix.

The SoCal Series will host the XTERRA Mission Gorge Trail Run in Santee, Calif., near San Diego. Several hundred runners are expected to participate ... and some of them may even run in football gear in honor of the day.

Both the SoCal and Arizona races will be run in the morning, allowing runners ample time to get home in time to watch the Super Bowl later in the day.
