Run the Night with Us!

Join us for the Summer Night Trail Half & Quarter Marathon on the trails at Tempe’s Papago Park.

What You Get at the Race

  • At nearly 7″ across, this Envy Worthy, heavy duty finisher medal rotates the suns and is the perfect addition to your display!
  • Registration includes your choice of a super soft heathered tee or the ladies gathered racerback tank!
  • Free to download, high res, professional race photos that are never watermarked!
  • A unique racing experience on the trails at night in a park that’s normally closed after hours.
  • A self gratifying sense of accomplishment that you conquered an event that only a small number of people get to do each year (remember the field is limited and this event will sell out!)

Race Field: Limited

Race Start: This will be a chip timed start, your time does not start until you cross the line.  In order to spread out runners and reduce the “hole-shot” backup, we will start racers in waves of approximately 30-40 racers at a time.

Chip Timing & Results: All distances chip timed by Race|Result Timing. The chips are attached to the back of your bib and are disposable so we do not need them back. Please wear your bibs on the front of your body and do not cover with heavy coats.  Results are available immediately following your finish online, by text or on the monitor (check the back of your bib for details)


NOTE:  Overall Top 3 Awards are presented as soon as the 3rd place finisher in each group finishes.  Age Group awards can be picked up at the awards table after you finish, just check the results screen and look for your place in the Age Group column.
