About This Activity

Experience Kartchner's 2nd Annual 5k Trail Run!  Come to run; stay for post race activites including an awards ceremony, wellness education, and opportunites to learn about the importance of our bats. 

The course is set in the rugged desert terrain of the Sonoran/Chihuahuan deserts.  The run has been slightly reworked to provide less pavement and more beautiful trail views by including our Foothills Loop Trail and Coronado National Forest trail.  The entire course is above ground.

This event will be held rain or shine.  No refunds or transfers.

Park entrance included.

All participants will receive a free event t-shirt.

For those interested in cave tours or camping please call (520) 586-CAVE (2283) or go to azstateparks.com to make your reservations.


We need lots of volunteers to make this event a success.  If you are interested in helping with this event, please email eway@azstateparks.gov. or call 520-586-4111 prior to October 1, 2015.
