Event Description

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.

Race Day

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, 75-79,  80 & over.

Bib/Chip/Shirt Pickup
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.

Registration for members $32 through 3/14
