PLAN NOW - MARK YOU CALENDAR FOR SEPTEMBER 10TH, 2022, to spring into action with the CATT for our 4th annual 5k family oriented Run/Walk/Roll and 10k Challenge Run held just 45 minutes southeast of Tucson, Arizona, in the scenic Whetstone Mountains.  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!  CHECK OUT HOW YOU CAN BE ELIGIBLE FOR REWARDS FROM THE MEGA "TOGETHER IS BETTER" CAMPAIGN AS EARLY AS 4 MONTHS PRIOR TO RACE DAY!

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.  Manned water and aide stations will be provided for your comfort and safety.

WELCOME:  Ages 3 to 104!  Strollers, sport chairs, hand-cycles, and wheelchairs are allowed for the 5k.  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.
