Travel & Other Info
Tucson (TUS) - 35 min.
Phoenix (PHX) - 2 hrs.
Driving Directions: To Old Tucson (201 Kinney Road)
We recommend looking for lodging in Tucson, which will most likely put you in a 30 minute drive (or less) to the race.
Run through the Sonoran desert on this beautiful trail outside of western Tucson. This course is a hybrid between road and trail, taking you through the secluded Tucson Mountain Park, just below the Saguaro NP West. The first mile takes you down Kinney Rd before you hop on the Golden Gate Trail through lush desert landscape. Return on the scenic McCain Loop and finish at Old Tucson Movie Studio where dozens of classic westerns were filmed.
