Spring into action with the CATT for an inaugural 5k family oriented Walk/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 this out-and-back route.  Add RAFFLE PRIZES for participants and a bit of FRIENDLY TEAM RIVALRY, and the fun just gets better! 
COURSE:  Starting at a cool 4300' elevation, pavement with adjacent grass gains 230' before participants execute a large sweeping mid-point turnaround to be rewarded with a fast downhill finish! Water, sports drinks, and aide stations are provided for your comfort and safety.
WELCOME:  Ages 4 to 104!  Strollers, sport chairs, handcycles, and wheelchairs are allowed; however, animals, skateboards, bikes, rollerblades, or other wheeled devices 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.  QUALIFY FOR PREMIER PARKING by carpooling with at least one other participant.  Be close to Check-In; Registration Tables; Info Boards; Portable Bathrooms; the Start/Finish Line; Post Nutrition Station; and, of course, the Awards / Photo-Op Corral!
