This year's event is going to be a bit different due to COVID-19.

In order to keep with CDC and City of Phoenix recommendations there will only be one race instead of 2.

This eliminates the large crowd of people that wait in between races.

The 2nd race, the First race of 2021 will be converted to virtual with all finishers of the 2020 event receiving both medals as they cross the finish line.

Our traditional sparkling cider toast will have to wait until December 31, 2021. All registered participants will receive a to go bottle to celebrate at home.

This event is limited to 500 participants due to COVID-19
