Something for Everyone

New to this year's Ultrarunning calendar!  

This November the Bootlegger 50K comes to you from the mountains outside of Boulder City, Nevada, high above the shores of Lake Mead and the Las Vegas Strip.  Find out more about this race sponsored by Red Rock Running Company, Pearl Izumi and Tenaya Creek Brewery at the event's website.

Coming to Flagstaff's Orpheum Theater on April 1st is the second annual Run to 2012 Fundraiser.

Please join the athletes, coaches and staff of Team USA Arizona for our second annual "Run to 2012" fundraiser on Friday, April 1, from 6-10 p.m. at the Orpheum Theater in downtown Flagstaff. The funds raised at this event will go toward training and support services for the team's elite runners as they prepare for the upcoming 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials. In addition, Team USA Arizona will donate $1 from the sale of each Run to 2012 admission ticket sold to both Fit Kids of Arizona and the YMCA's Strong Kids and Families Campaign to support the team's community mission of reducing childhood obesity in northern Arizona and promoting good health and physical activity among children, youth and families.

The event includes dinner from Big Foot BBQ, silent and live auctions, a raffle and a special guest appearance by Olympic Medalist and ING New York City Marathon Champion Rod Dixon. Tickets are $10 for adults; $5 for students age 10 and over; $25 for families; and free for children under 10. For more information or to donate an item to the raffle or silent auction, please call Tracy McMillan at (928) 380-0778 or email Silent auction and raffle items must be received by March 21.

The first annual adidas-McMillanElite High School Training Camp comes to Flagstaff, AZ
July 31st to August 5, 2011.

Come experience six days and five nights in Arizona's running mecca. During training you will experience Flagstaff's diverse trail systems. Group runs will take place on everything from unpaved forest roads to the Flagstaff Urban Trails System and mountainous single-track trails. Each run features scenic vistas and unique mountain vegetation and topography. Located at 7,000 feet above sea level, Flagstaff's ideal summer climate - the average high temperature is 82 degrees F while evening and morning temperatures can cool to the upper 40s F - is one of the reasons that the best runners from around the world choose to live and train here. Join other high school runners from across the country in a week-long training camp led by running experts in one of the most renown training meccas in the U.S.
