It was a great outing and wonderful to see many participants
James & Shannon, you 2 are the best & I love you guys! Thanks for 10 AMAZING years!
Still time to sign up for this unique desert trail run.
Just a heads up re: Sunday am.. Anyone traveling from the east Metro Phx area on the 101W, there will be restrictions (Friday to Monday AM) Westbound - 101 Cave Creek to 7th Street.
Thanks for holding this event! Good times!
Big shout to you guys from Washington - way to host an awesome race - food swag and fantastic course !! Thanks for everything πŸ‘πŸ½
Ever been on a run and been like, "Why doesn't the city fix all these burned out path lights??!?"

I had the same thought, so I built an app. It allows you to report whatever issue you see to whatever city you are in. Burned out path lights, pot holes in bike lanes, debris left by homeless people...

Just go into your app store and download "Really Simple Reporting" it's free, and works in 3000+ cities in N. America.
Anyone see this guy that was racing this weekend?
Indian Springs Flooded
We are opening a film on the world's longest race with a strong indigenous theme. Native health expert Chelsey Luger and director Sanjay Rawal will be at Friday's screening in Scottsdale. A sponsor has opened up tix for us to give out. People should just use the following link and the code PHXRUN for free tix.

I'm very disappointed with this event. The course was great, even with the rain, and I love the MC. I ran my heart out hoping to place in my age group but my name was not announced at the awards. I was disappointed - I always run hard hoping to make it to the podium. Then I see that I came in second place when the results were posted the next day.

When inquiring all I was told is "Our apologies". When I asked how many this happened to (because I don't want to compete in events that don't recognize me when I am fortunate enough to place) 4 Peaks says I was the only one of the approximately four hundred entrants this happened to. Boo!

Putting on desert trail races since 2010, ShendoCat is the premier trail race company in Arizona.

What's the best trail running strength exercises? THE ONES YOU DO!!! Everyone has a list of the "best ones" but I'm told the best results come from the ones you do. Of course, in case you need help getting started here's some suggestions from Trail Runner Mag.

Ultra Legs, A Strength Routine For Ultrarunners Easy 10-minute strength routine for ultrarunners and trail runners. Here are coach David Roche's favorite strength routines for ultrarunners.


There’s still plenty of wildflowers out there. You just might have to travel a bit higher to find them. And maybe slow down once in a while.
