Arizona Road Races will host 11 races this year, from the Open Mile to the rewarding challenge of the Desert Classic marathon. The ARR Summer Series features five unique races plus the Summer Series Grand Prix, which awards runners for their cumulative performance. Our Thanksgiving Day Classic is the oldest and one of the largest Turkey Trots featuring 10-mile, 5K, and 1-mile runs.

Our races attract runners of all abilities – from competitive racers to first timers. Check out all the upcoming races here.

Not all of our events are races. We also have a variety of free social events from fun runs with local running stores, to weekly track workouts at Shadow Mountain High School, to the annual volunteer recognition banquet. These events typically are free with the sole purpose of bringing the running community together.

Check our Social Event Calendar here to see upcoming events including the Halloween costume run, Holiday Night Run, Easter Egg Hunt and other fun FREE social runs throughout the year.
