Race Report Arizona: Pass Mtn. Trail Run 2016

I don’t get to Arizona much, but when I do, a trail run is a must! It’s the best way to see the beauty that is the Arizona desert! We chose the Aravaipa Pass Mtn. Trail Run 10k in Mesa, in November.

The race included two Ultra’s, but we chose the 10k. It started at 9a, and it was already 82-degrees!

The course was super pretty, and gave you a great sense of what it’s like to be an Arizona trail runner, and what it takes to run in that heat!

I forgot my water bottle in the car, so I did suffer through this one! The first water station was at mile 4, and after a few glasses of water, I still suffered the last 2 miles. My own fault! Hubby took a twist in the trail a little too fast, and caught a cactus! Ouch!

Again, this race offers 50K, 25K, 10K, 5K races, so there is something for everyone! That applies to the aid station too! They were top-notch, even offering vegan options! Huzzah!

The race was well-organized, and super fun. When I’m back in Arizona, I’ll look for another Aravaipa event to take part in!

Outfit for this race: Skirt Sports Gym Girl Ultra skirt, Runner’s Roost team shirt.
