The South Mountain Classic is a 20K or 5K starting and finishing at the South Mountain Activity Center in Phoenix. Take Central Avenue two miles south of Baseline Road to the park.
Registration begins at 6:30 AM. The 20K begins at 7:30 AM and the 5K begins at 7:40 AM.
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.
Both the 20K and 5K are USATF certified courses. The courses are on roads only (no trails).
Awards will be presented to the first 3 finishers overall (no double dipping) and to the top 3 finishers in the following age groups (male/female): 19 & under, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75 & over.
Runners pick up their bibs, timing chips, and race shirts on race day beginning at 6:30 a.m. NOTE: T-Shirts are guaranteed only to runners who pre-register and pick up their shirt before gun time.
