Ram Party was definitely a party! Even with the course change I had an absolute blast running and meeting new people and the Aravaipa Running Ram Party 50 miler! I PR’d my 50 mile by 3 hours and felt so much stronger and better this time around! I ended up finishing 22nd overall with a time of 9 hours and 43 minutes! Was going for 11 hours but I’ll take a little shorter! Thank you to everyone that came out and helped me and cheered me on today! I had a blast! Also had the opportunity to meet and chat with some trail running goats Jamil Coury and Allie Mac! World champions and multiple ultra championships and podiums! What a great day!

As the weekend wraps up, congratulations to all the amazing Aravaipa Running Cocodona 250 runners/participants/organizers/volunteers who are finally catching up on some much needed rest!

However, we'd also like to all make a big shout out to the dozen or so NATRA runners who paced, volunteered at aid stations, or swept the course.

In fact, NATRA's Bruce Higgins, Liu Yanzi, Selena and Jeremiah Langner collectively swept 109 of the 250 race course miles. That's a remarkable 43.6% of the race. And not only that, they had to go back and forth covering much more ground to ensure that dropped runners made it back safely to their previous aid stations! Bruce Higgins then turned around and helped lead the Saturday NATRA group run!!!!!

Never a dull moment with this gritty and gutsy group!
Here we are coming into Day 5 of the Cocodona 250! Andrew Barrett is ALMOST THERE! He’s at 242.2 miles. He should finish around 10:15 to 10:30am! Make sure to check out the live stream on Aravaipa Running’s YouTube page.

Justin Davis and Kevin Coughlin are at 227.4 miles. Krupski is at 218 miles. Carmen Brockdorf and Seth Talalla are at 210 miles, Scott Davis at 203.6 miles.

In the Sedona Canyons 125, Ron Hammett is at 111.5 miles with Helgi Olafson at mile 94.3!
If you need some inspiration today, check out the stories of these runners at the Cocodona 250!

The podium finishers on both the men's and women's side have finished their journey. However, the majority of runners are still out on course, pushing themselves to the finish in downtown Flagstaff.

They have 125 hours to finish the race and there will almost certainly be runners finishing right up to the wire. Follow along through the live stream at the Aravaipa Running Youtube channel!

Special shoutout to Flagstaff local, Sarah Ostaszewski, for her 1st place female finish 🙌
You guys are doing an AMAZING job with the live stream. Thank you!!
giddyup time! Wednesday at 7am. Follow along via Aravaipa Running live tracking and live feed on YouTube.

The historic and gorgeous, Highline Trail, is a large and magical part of the Mogollon Monster 100, and for those who experienced it this past weekend, we hope that with each footfall on its single track you soaked in its beauty and reveled in its peacefulness.

But the epicness of this trail comes with a cost and a lot of hard work by the stewards who tend to it to not only keep it safe for us to utilize, but to also protect the surrounding watershed landscapes.

This is why we hope you’ll consider making a small donation to the Highline Trail Restoration Initiative.

Together with the National Forest Foundation, we can help to not only keep the Highline Trail an essential section of the Mogollon Monster course, but more importantly, a beautiful, safe, and accessible path for all to enjoy for generations to come.

You know what they say…if you want to truly feel loved, run a 100 miler.

Friends, family, community, total strangers…it takes a village. A big, kind, awesome village to get these runners through a tough mountain hundred like the Mogollon Monster.

It’s a sacrifice that crews happily make, and a gesture that runners will treasure forever.

What do Noah Dougherty, Aaron Barber, Bryce Brooks, and myself, Jen Laughlin, all have in common?

Other than the fact we all work at Aravaipa Running, we all chose the Mogollon Monster 100 Mile as our very first 100!

Now, you may be asking why on earth we would pick this advanced degree footrace that also happens to be Arizona’s only Hardrock 100 qualifier as our first 100 and not something a bit “easier”.

The answers to that question and more can be found in our latest blog post that features a quick Q and A explaining the methods behind our decision making madness.

Ultra runner with autism, Zach Bates, told his mother at his High School graduation that he wanted to run a 100-mile ultramarathon before his 20th birthday. A Cross Country athlete whose longest distance at the time had only been 5 kilometers, Zach’s determination and sharp focus, along with an incredible coach and the unwavering support of his family, brought his vision to fruition at the 2022 Coldwater Rumble 100 mile at Estrella Mountain Regional Park in Goodyear.

Zach’s remarkable journey of his very first 100 at Coldwater Rumble, from training to the finish line, is now a documentary for the world to see, and it’s coming SOON to a theater near you!

The Highline Trail. 🥾

It’s not just a significant section of our beloved and brutal, Mogollon Monster 100, it’s also a point-to-point National Recreation Trail that’s shrouded in both beauty and history.

Designated as a National Recreation Trail in 1978, the route first came into regular use shortly after the U.S. Civil War, used by homesteaders to traverse the canyons along Mogollon Rim. But due to this incredible location, the Highline Trail is in constant need of maintenance.

That’s why we are proud to partner with the Tonto National Forest and the National Forest Foundation to help support their HighlineTrail Restoration Initiative.

Because the Highline Trail traverses through canyons and drainages atop the Mogollon Rim, trail crossings often occur on the fall lines of steep slopes that cause massive erosion and ruts. The Highline Restoration Initiative works to re-route these areas to create a more sustainable and safe tread. This multi-phase project also aims to enhance trail access and improve trail safety and watersheds.

Head to the link below to learn more about the Highline Trail Restoration Initiative and please consider making a donation towards their stewardship.

Let’s help keep the iconic Highline Trail beautiful, safe, and accessible for all to enjoy for generations to come! #!/donation/checkout?c_src=WEB&c_src2=AZ0000WEB
