About the 5K Course

The course is fast mixed terrain using paved and dirt paths that loop with a minimal elevation change located in Arcadia, an east central-Phoenix neighborhood.

This course is perfect for attempting a PR (personal record or personal best) or having a fun leisurely run, walk or wheel.

Water will be available for runners and walkers at the start, finish, and midpoint.

Restrooms are available near the start, finish and expo area.

Sports strollers, running chairs, hand cycles, and sports wheelchairs are allowed on the course. Pets are not allowed at this event.

Run or walk within 1.5 hours from the 5K start time with an additional 15 minutes before the 5K finish disqualification time.

The course may vary slightly on race day and will be well marked to help keep you on course.

5K Course Directions

From the Arizona Falls Start Line northeast of Indian School Road between North 56th Street and North 60th Street at GR Herberger Park, head northeast along the north canal bank to North 68th Street crossing over the footbridge to the south side of the canal just prior to reaching North 68th Street. Head southwest along the south canal bank to the Arizona Falls Finish Line.


The initial member registering for the race will be able to create their team during registration. Additional members will then select their team from the team dropdown.

Each team member’s race result will indicate their team name, so you do not need to qualify for team results to be recognized as a team.

To compete, you must have at least five members.

A team qualifies for group results when it has at least five members with valid race results. That team’s top five qualifying members are used to compute the team’s overall placement.


A first aid kit will be available at the start and finish for minor incidents. If you or someone you are observing needs medical assistance, please notify a race crew member. If you believe you or someone else may be experiencing a life-threatening emergency, call 911 immediately.
