Please plan to arrive early! Park Rangers will be checking each vehicle before entering the park. This can cause a backup in traffic, especially nearing gun time. Click HERE to print your parking pass.
Because South Mountain Park requires all runners to be off the road by 10:00 a.m., runners in the 20K must be able to maintain at least a 12 minute per mile pace. If you cannot keep a 12 minute mile pace or faster, an early start is available at 6:30 a.m. Registration for early start runners begins at 6:00 a.m.
In lieu of t-shirts this year we will be having ARR insulated bags.
