We’ve matched one of the toughest 5k’s in Southern Arizona with a hilly 12 mile bike course,
and finishing with a 2 mile run. Although the bike route may change pending permit approval.

The beauty of the Sonoran Desert and gorgeous mountain ranges will surround you with views of the Stone Ramada at the Cave and the City of Tucson to the west.

All participants will get free entrance into the Park and a free tech t-shirt. All racers that register at least 10 days before the event are guaranteed a t-shirt in their specified size. In an attempt to predict racer participation, we will order some additional t-shirts. However, those registering within 10 days of the event will receive t-shirts while supplies last.

Awards will be three deep in all age groups. Pre-registration is required.

We hope you come out bring the family and make a day at the Park.

Directions to Colossal Cave Mountain Park:

From East 22nd Street, turn south onto scenic Old Spanish Trail and follow it about 17 miles to Colossal Cave Mountain Park.
Or, take I-10 east from Tucson to exit 279 (the Vail/Wentworth exit), turn north, and follow the signs for about 7 miles.

We listened to some suggestions… starting the race a little later (8:15am) and added a “Fat Tire” division.


Bike route  This gives you the elevation break down.  There are some good sized hills in the loop.  We do the loop twice.  This is a county and park “paved” road.

Run route This is the 5k run route.  The 2 mile run is to the first mile then turn around.
