Escape the holiday madness and join us at Kiwanis park in Tempe for the Festivus 15K, 5K, or 15K Relay. The 15K and 15K Relay are FREE for members, if you register by December 13.
The 15K and 15K Relay begins at 7:00 a.m., while the 5K begins at 7:30 a.m.
Please Note: Formerly known as the Desert Classic 30K, this event no longer offers a 30k. The individual race and the relay are both now a distance of 15k. The Festivus 15K and 15K relay is free for ARR members, if you register by December 13.
A relay team consists of 3 members – each member of a team will run one 5K leg of the total 15K distance. All members of the relay team must fill out a separate application (online or mail-in).
The 15K and 5K will have the usual 5-year age groups for awards. The relay will use categories based on the combined ages of all relay members: Up to a total of less than 60; 61 to 90; 91 to 120; 121 to 150; 151 to 180; and greater than 181.
Technical ski caps in one of six colors are guaranteed to runners who pre-register and pick up their cap before gun time. Remaining technical caps will be available to race day registrants and available for purchase after gun time.
