If you’d like to escape the scorching desert sun for a bit, this weekend is the perfect opportunity to head North and get your racing fix at the same time. New Horizon Christian Academy is hosting their second annual 10k run this weekend at Fort Tuthill near Flagstaff, Arizona.
The race will be held Saturday, July 24th with registration and packet pick up opening at 7:00AM and the race starting at 9:00AM.
Fees are $35 by July 20th, and $45 on race-day. There will not be any group/discount registration available on the day of race. Online registration can be found here, and print registration forms can be found here.
All registered participants will receive a colorful, quality short-sleeve T-shirt & race pack. Runners will also be treated to plenty of snacks and water, and a reception after the run.
Cash prize to the overall male and female will be given, as well as awards for the top three male and female in each class of the run 10K (under 20; 20-29; 30-39; 40-49; 50+).
The course follows groomed trails and pavement through Fort Tuthill County Park and is shown on the official race map. Last year’s race brought out 61 runners, primarily from the Flagstaff area.
