What is BEYOND?
The events of January 8, 2011 shook our community, affecting each of us deeply. It was a horrible day. But in the days and months afterward, our community came together in a way it never had before. We supported each other, leaned on each other, and generally looked out for one another. BEYOND is a community-wide event to commemorate the anniversary of January 8th, celebrate the spirit of togetherness, and re-commit ourselves to working together to build a stronger community every day.
What's Happening At Saguaro West?
As part of this commemorative effort, SAR is hosting a free running and walking event at Saguaro National Park West, in partnership with the National Park Service.The National Park Service and the Southern Arizona Roadrunners will team up for a free, non-competitive five-mile social run on the roads of Saguaro National Park West. Runners and walkers of all ages and abilities are invited ? but, please, no wheeled vehicles and no pets.
What's Happening at Sabino Canyon?
