I love this race! Unfortunately, I had to do it virtually again this year (second year in a row) but I can’t wait to do it in person again – hopefully next year! I did this race in person 3 years ago and got hooked! The hills will eat you alive lol, so make sure you train up and down the hills a lot but the views… so stunning! Love this race! So I got out on the local trails at least to get some nice views and hills in so I didn’t feel like a total cheat haha! You should do this but make sure you have trail experience and do hills!

As any other VR, this is a great race with awesome views. The only downside is the crazy amount of mosquitoes that were eating us alive, especially once we were done running. Apply ton of bug spray before you run and maybe consider long sleeves/pants as they were brutal. Everything else was awesome as always, the swag and treat box included!

I love all VR events, this one is no exception. We were lucky to avoid any rain or wind during our race, so even though we started in 37F, it wasn’t very cold. The weather was really ideal. We had under 300feet elevation gain due to rerouting of the original course (due to snow), so the only thing that made it tough was the elevation we were in. Swag was awesome, as well as the volunteers and staff.

This was a nice easy 5K with views of ranches and horses once we passed the road section. It was cold, especially with the wind blowing quite a bit while we were waiting for the start but pretty 5K with great organization, swag and treat box πŸ™‚

Again, wonderful VR race! We got lucky it didn’t rain on us, despite the weather forecast calling for rain the whole week. It was cold but doable. The scenery was beautiful, I had to stop quite a few times to take some pics. Loved running along the pastures and seeing the cows and horses, stables, ranches. It was truly beautiful with amazing swag and treat box at the end πŸ™‚

I ran this race in 2022 in person and wow! It was tough as heck but so beautiful and the views were to die for (or die getting to them)! Absolutely stunning, though my knees would not agree πŸ˜€
I signed up for 2023 right away because I knew I wanted to do it, even though I hate planning races too much in advance. 2023 came and I knew I wasn’t able to make it, I reached out to the team saying I won’t be able to make it and I was offered several options on what to do with my registration. I was going to defer to the next year, which they were helping me with but I couldn;t get over NOT having this years awesome medal… I mean 2! Do yeah… totally last minute, I decided to defer to a virtual event and they still let me do it. Thank you for always being so accommodating, I can’t wait to be back in 2024!

A friend recommended this as my first 50K when I started looking for one I think back in December. I didn’t want to wait another year and April-September is just too hot here in the Valley. This was a beautiful course, with a lot of water crossings due to the amount of rain we got, which worried me at first but I seemed to not mind it as much as I thought. Aravaipa’s races are amazing and this was no exception!

I was very under trained but super excited to do this innaugural race! At 10,000 feet elevation, this is tough as heck if you’re not ready for that kind of elevation. Definitely would suggest you arrive a few days in advance and acclimate as much as you can but also train a lot of uphill and downhill running and have a great light, because we walked a lot and sometimes it was just due to not having the best night light and avoiding sprained ankles or falls. Beautiful race but really tough.

The views are worth the killer hills! Tough course, but so beautiful and the medals are equally stunning! Wanted to do it in 2023 but couldn’t travel, so did the virtual option but I bought my 2024 again, so hoping to be back in person πŸ™‚

I drove 100 miles there and back just to make it to this event! This was my very first 1/2 marathon and it was beautiful. Loved the course, wanted to go back and do it again but it was conflicting with other races I was already signed up for, so maybe in 2024. The only disappointment was the race T-shirt (big bulky cotton shirt with a huge print that just made it uncomfortable to even sleep in) and I didn’t care too much for the medal but it was OK (cork screw type). But everything else was great and I was excited to find a 1/2 marathon last minute within somewhat of a normal distance here in AZ in June, without having to do it at night.
