RACES – The 50-mile race is capped at 50 runners. The course begins and ends in Arizona, and includes several miles in the backcountry of the Valley on some very scenic rarely seen routes, plus the iconic trail ascent of Mitchell Mesa. The 50K race is capped at 150 runners and includes spectacular trail running. The Half Marathon course near Sentinel Mesa is capped at 250 runners. The Half route is primarily dirt doubletrack. The Wildcat Trail Fun Run is a four-mile trail fun run, which will be open to the general public.
