Event Description

NEW DATE:  MARCH 26, 2017
Trail Runners,
Unfortunately, with the recent rain that river is RUNNING!   After consulting with the Bureau of Land Management and our very experienced communications group, we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone this weekend’s event. The river crossings on the course and for support vehicles access to the aid stations are just too high to cross safely.  While this is XTERRA and we love to run though the mud, wind, rain, river, and over mountains, your safety is still our number one priority.  The current conditions will simply not allow for a safe event to proceed.  We have postponed the event until March 26, 2017.
All entries will be forwarded to the new date, March 26, 2017.
If you are unable to make the new date you can transfer your entry to one of the remaining XTERRA Arizona 2017 races:
XTERRA Estrella Mtn Trail Run Sunday, October 8, 2017
XTERRA San Tan Trail Run Sunday, November 12, 2017
All transfer requests must be made by March 19, 2017.  Please email info@aztrailrace.com to request a transfer.
If you are unable to make the new date or any of the remaining 2017 events please refer to the AZ Trail Race Natural Disaster Policy at http://www.aztrailrace.com/349-revision-v1/.
Thank you for your understanding.  Enjoy your weekend on some non-river crossing trails and we will see you on the 26th.
Shannon and the gang at AZ Trail Race.

Course Information

Event day check-in begins at 05:15

  1. Your feet most likely will get wet.
  2. Because your feet may get wet, there is a strong possibility sand may get in your shoes. Well venitilated = wet and sandy on this course so plan accordingly.
  3. NO LATE STARTS. Budget your time to get to Black Canyon City and catch the shuttle if you are running the 1/2 marathon. You must start ahead of the sweep in order to receive a finish time.
  4. HEADPHONES = DQ. This too is a safety issue. This course consists almost entirely of singletrack with a ton of exposure. You need to be aware of your surroundings. When you pass someone you, they need to be able to hear you coming. If you are found wearing headphones at any time you will be disqualified. NO EXCEPTIONS.
  5. This course is awesome! If you've never been out here, be prepared for a treat :)
