Was wondering if you could help me.

My wife is going to do the running races with you guys next year while my son and I do the rides.

What are good mountain running shoes for her? Wanted to get some for her for Xmas 🙂

Thanks.

We have some pivotal moments in our life and this was one of them for me!

I honestly don't remember if I had been training on trails at this point or not.

What I do remember:

⭐ I was training for my first marathon (Lost Dutchman 2012)
⭐ I had just come back from my first ChiWalking/ChiRunning Instructor Weekend. I had just met Danny Dreyer and Katherine for the first time and I was on cloud 9.
⭐ My Dad (an avid cyclist) rode his bike from Mesa to come and meet me and found me right at the end of my race! (in picture)
⭐ It was really hard! I am pretty sure I was (dead effin last) or close to it
⭐ It got me hooked on trails!

Hello Do You like our medal ? We can make similar for Your event :)
Happy Halloween!!
No full moon tonight, but there certainly was one this weekend. At least at the party in desert - the Javelina Jundred Endurance Run.

Perhaps a bit tongue and cheek, but can we agree——our ASSt Coach is cooler than yours!?
🤣🤣

Bob Hearn returned to the site of his first 100 mile race and threw down a 22:38. Not bad for someone who proclaims not to be a trail runner and “hates running on rocks.”

He also took home the “Best Ass” award, leaving the competition far behind in his rear-view mirror.

* We have confirmed with the 2023 US 24 Hour Team Head Coach, Pam Proffitt Smith, Bob is NOT responsible for the team’s wardrobe for the World Championship. 👀👀🤣🤣

You’ve most likely seen our next community runner highlight crushing big mountain races, volunteering at them, or out on the trails with his adorable ultra pup, Bear. He’s also taking on the very competitive, very exciting, Frenzy 50 miler this weekend.

Let’s take a few moments to get to know local Mesa runner, Mike Cady, a bit better with a little Q & A!

Q: Where are you from and what do you do?

M: I'm from a small town off the coast of Washington in the rainforest of Aberdeen and have been slowly migrating south from Portland to San Francisco to Phoenix. I recently made a change in occupation from the healthcare field to realign my path with my passion and am currently seeking something I really enjoy doing, because life is too short to not follow your intuition to be happy.

Q: How long have you been running for and when was your first Aravaipa race?

M: I started running as a young kid to free my mind and step into that free state of flow, in an all out sprint. I liked to go fast. I got into running at the height of the pandemic in 2020. A friend asked me to run the Grand Canyon rim to rim to rim and I started training and it felt good, so I just kept running. I ran Whiskey Basin 91k, Nov 2020 as my first race. I took a series of wrong turns and eventually made it back around the other lakes to get on course, through hail and 50mph wind I finished with all the glory of an ultra. I binged ate at the finish line aid maybe 6 hotdogs.

Q: What is your favorite distance to run?

M: My favorite distance to run is a 100 mile grueling mountain race. It takes me on a mind altering adventure I'm not sure I’ll make it back from.

Q: In my opinion, you’re definitely a dark horse in the running to place high at the Frenzy 50 mile. You’ve done some really tough races with a lot of vert, finished top 3 at Mogollon Monster and completed UTMB. Are you shooting for
that Salomon sponsorship, or just taking on Frenzy for funsies?

M: I'm shooting for that Solomon sponsorship. I've been waiting for this race for years and it’s finally happening. I've been going for golden tickets and this race might just be the boost someone needs to catapult their confidence to the next level.

Q: Lastly, tell us a bit about your furry running companion!

M: My dog, Bear, is the ultimate ultra dog, never stops, never quits, and he's fast. I've been training to try and keep up with him on 10 mile runs, but he's still got me. I finally outrun him on 30 milers. He’s ran 7 ultras, all at high elevation. We've been training for the annual ultradog 50k world championships on the Round Hump FKT course in Flagstaff. I'm trying to create a non profit ultra race event for dogs, to benefit dog charities and nature conservation. So, train your dogs to become Ultradogs!

🐕 🐕 🐕

Thank you so much for sharing, Mike, best of luck to you this Saturday at Frenzy, and tell your dog we said hi. 😉

Looking to run your first Marathon, first ultra Marathon, first 100 miler, hit a new distance personal best or all of the above?

There’s no better place to do it than at a fixed-time event.

Because of the looped style of each course, you’ll always have an aid station within reach, a cheerleader at every turn, and fellow runner or walker nearby to help keep your motivation high.
With zero worry about going off course, it’s more than easy to put your head down, zone out and grind out your miles, or, make new friends to chat with while getting lost in your laps!

Either way, you’ll become a first time (insert your new title here 😉 ) before you can say “Let’s get LOOPY”!

Wanna give your new distance personal best a go?

We’ve got three fixed-time events coming up on the calendar: Fat Ox in a few weeks, Across the Years in December and the Jackpot Ultras in March.

Learn more about each unique event and venue at the links below and…let’s get loopy!

And the four winners of our first ever in-race Strava Segment Challenge are…🥁

Wait! Before we announce our winners, let us rewind and remind everyone what our Strava Segment Challenge is!

New for our entire 2022/23 Desert Runner Trail Series are in-race Strava Segment Challenges. We create two segments on the race course and mark those segments with signage. Whoever completes those segments the swiftest wins a prize! How fun, right?

Now without further ado, the winners of the Strava segments at Pass Mountain Trail Runs were Charlie Ware & Jenni Vanos for the "Are you Kitten Me" segment, and Michael Gfeller & Courtne McIntosh for the “Talk Derby to Me" segment.

Want to have a go at our Strava Segment Challenge? We will have it again at Frenzy Trail Runs in just a few weeks.

Great work, Strava winners!

Did you know that Pass Mountain used to be the second race in the DRT Series and not the first?

Cave Creek Thriller was the to kick off of the series until the Covid era, when it was moved from October to December. Still pretty warm in October, everyone seemed to enjoy the December timing of Thriller a bit better so there it stayed!

Pretty cool, right? Pun intended 😉

While it seems that the popularity of ultramarathons has exploded in the last couple decades, the sport has actually been around for a lot longer than you may think!

During the late 18th and 19th centuries, pedestrianism was an extremely popular spectator sport. Pedestrianism, which was basically long-distance, competitive walking, was a staple at fairs and involved a lot of gambling (similar to horse racing).

During this time, one of the most coveted benchmarks in pedestrianism was to walk 100 miles in 24 hours or less, for which athletes earned the nickname "centurions". Large cash prizes were offered for participants and pedestrian events drew large crowds of spectators.

Through the years the sport has evolved and splintered into several disciplines like race walking, cross country, marathons and Ultramarathons, but the spirit of this OG endurance sport lives on.

Modern day fixed-timed races like Fat Ox, Across the Years and Jackpot Ultras still showcase the pedestrianism spirit today as a unique cross section of ultrarunners and endurance walkers that test their fortitude in much the same way as the pedestrians of the 1800's, minus the gambling, of course. 😉

You can learn more about each of our fixed-time events at the links below, including Fat Ox, which is coming up quick on December 2-3 at Estrella Regional Park.
We hope you’ll consider joining us for one if not all of these nods to pastime of pedestrianism…they are so much fun!

Fueling for your race…it’s arguably one of the toughest aspects of running!

Aravaipa Racing Team member Colleen Lingley is no stranger to long efforts and executing near perfect races.

She’s completed numerous ultramarathons and trail races, including two 100-Mile finishes, and is also a registered dietitian in Flagstaff so she certainly knows her stuff when it comes to race fueling.

With Colleen being such an expert, we couldn’t think of a more knowledgable person in our running community to provide some guidance around race preparation and in-race nutrition.

Take a few moments and head to the link below to read our latest blog featuring Colleen’s nutrition tips for race week/day fueling.

Beautiful and unique scenery, challenging and fun trails, a charming town reminiscent of the late 1800’s and a fascinating history that surrounds it…if you’re looking for a footrace with both beauty and depth, look no further than Copper Corridor Trail Runs!

The town of Superior is shrouded in history and reminders of its past can be seen along the Copper Corridor course and throughout the town of Superior itself. Let’s learn more about it in a series of blog posts detailing the area’s landscape as well as its Copper mining roots that first put this booming destination on the map so many years ago.

Head to the link below now to read the first blog in the series that details some really cool facts about Picketpost Mountain and the Silver King Mine!

Registration is now open for the 50k, 32k, 17k or 12k, all of which get you out and exploring beautiful and relatively undiscovered single track trails that will treat you to lovely landscapes like Saguaro cactus forests, flowing creeks and rock formations reminiscent of the Superstition Wilderness or Bryce Canyon!

Many of its saloons have live music on Saturday night and are the perfect place to kick up your feet, visit with friends and feel like you’re taking a step back in time…and it’s all within an hour’s drive from downtown Phoenix!

Mining edition ⛏️

Located just to the North of Phoenix, AZ, the Bradshaw Mountains loom over the valley at just under 8,000 feet. These Mountains are rugged, steep, and (were at one point) full of gold, making them ideal for trail runners and miners alike!

After the initial discovery of gold deposits in 1863, mines and boom towns like Crown King, Bradshaw City, and Oro Belle were built and their populations exploded into the hundreds of thousands. By the 1900's, however, the mining boom had slowed and these towns were mostly abandoned. Today you can find over 40 ghost towns and abandoned mining camps within the Bradshaw Mountains.

Relics of the Bradshaw Mountain's rich mining history are still visible along the Cocodona 250, Crown King Scramble 50K, and Black Canyon Ultras courses.

Keep an eye out for rusty mining equipment and old building foundations as you look up (or down) at this epic mountain range on your training run or race!
