“Running for me is like a little vacation that you take on a daily basis. Taking a run with others is the best way I know to connect with friends or family members. Running alone is the best way I know of to get away, escape the daily grind and have a little personal adventure. I see Arizona Road Racers as a family of friends who have always been there to support and encourage those who love to run.”


Summer Series #5

Runners were surrounded by picturesque views this morning at South Mountain Park during the fifth and final race of the 2017 Summer Series Grand Prix. Today was the last chance to score points, and the weather was optimal for running (for August in Arizona, at least).

The course set out with a gradual incline, sloping up from the parking lot and past the guard station where it began to get steeper. The path then dipped down into a trough, coming out the other side with a climb all the way to the turnaround. From the backside of the loop, the views are terrific as the course slopes back down toward the trough. The return trip is a combination of ups and downs, with a relatively fast finish back into the parking lot.

Top male finishers were Marcos Ballon, Aron Orar, and Dylan Marsh. Top female finishers were Kristi Petrosky, Kayla Freeman, and Katherine Nierva (see all race #5 results). Registrants of all five Summer Series races received a participant medal once they crossed the finish.

See final results, just in. Awards for the Summer Series will be given out at the Poker Run on September 14.


Our good friend and ARR volunteer Ron Ledesma was recently involved in a motorcycle accident. Visit his GoFundMe page to learn more, and consider a gift if you are able.

“I was drawn to ARR with a goal in 2013 to run a race every month and ARR helped me achieve that goal during the hottest mornings of the year. I enjoy ARR as it is a community that cheers and supports every athlete, no matter the age or athletic ability. I take pleasure in volunteering with ARR since it gives me the opportunity to make each race memorable, and I get to participate too! Greeting a newcomer or a past participant with a smile is the first opportunity to put them at ease, so they can just enjoy the race! I look forward to many more years of volunteering for the ARR races.”
