EXCITEMENT IS IN THE AIR!  OUR SECOND ANNUAL EVENT PROMOTING HEALTH, FITNESS, AND COMMUNITY FUN HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO  DECEMBER 5, 2020!  Whether a participant, spectator, or volunteer, you won't want to miss this one! DEADLINE TO REGISTER EXTENDED TO DEC. 3RD.

Spring into action with the CATT for a 5k family oriented Run/Walk/Roll and 10k Challenge Run held in the scenic foothills of the Whetstone Mountains just 45 minutes southeast of Tucson, Arizona. From on-line registration to the OYL chip-timed finish, expect to be treated to incredible views and camaraderie on these out-and-back routes. Add RAFFLE PRIZES for participants, a bit of FRIENDLY TEAM RIVALRY and the fun just gets better!
COURSE:  Both races start at a cool 4300' elevation, on pavement with adjacent grass.  The 5k gains 230' in elevation before participants execute a large sweeping mid-point turnaround to be rewarded with a fast downhill finish!  10k enthusiasts loop the elevation gain twice as they switch multiple times between pavement and trail before making the last turn for the 1 mile downhill finish framed with awesome valley views. Participants are to carry their own water since unmanned water stations will have bottled water only while supplies last.  Aide stations are provided for your comfort and safety.
WELCOME:  Ages 3 to 104!  Strollers, sport chairs, hand-cycles, and wheelchairs are allowed for the 5k, but animals, bikes, skate boards, roller blades or other wheeled devises are not permitted. Although traffic is restricted to one lane with a pilot car, headphones are discouraged for runner safety.  
PARKING:  I-10 Exit 297 onto J-6 Ranch Road, then follow the signs.  Multiple participants within the same household QUALIFY FOR PREMIER PARKING.  Be close to Check-In; Registration Tables; Info Boards; Portable Bathrooms; the Start/Finish Line; Post Nutrition Station; and, of course, the Awards/Prize Corral!
