WHAT: XTERRA San Tan Trail Run
WHEN: November 10, 2019
WHERE: San Tan Regional Park (map it)
No additional obstacles needed on this course; Mother Nature has already done all the work. A challenging 14-mile course gives a sampling of San Tan Regional Park's 10,000 acres of Sonoran Desert. Start by rolling up and over Goldmine, up Dynamite and stroll through Malpais wash. The 8K course is a little easier on the calves but is challenging just the same. The rolling trails of Moonlight, San Tan and Hedgehog bring 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.

Shendo Cat Racing needs YOU to make these events happen!
Volunteers guarantee the success of each event. They man the aid stations, cheer on the athletes, direct the misdirected runner, provide medical personnel, and generally make the races safer for everyone. We guarantee a great time and the time spent will be worthwhile. You don’t have to be a runner or athlete to volunteer at our events. If you have simple words of encouragement and are able to help direct runners or hand out water, you are valuable to us! In exchange for your time, you’ll be rewarded with coffee during the wee hours of the morning, goodies and refreshments, and most importantly the feel-good feeling of knowing that you helped to make the event happen and everyone finished because of the help you offered. You’ll also receive points for volunteering. Earn 6 points and you’ve earned a free race! Questions? Contact shannon [at] aztrailrace.com.
