    Event Postponed
    New date to be announced soon.

    The Southern Arizona Roadrunners Board of Directors has been closely monitoring COVID-19 and has been in communication with health professionals, local and state government, and the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA). The Board met on March 12 in a special conference to discuss the concerns surrounding COVID-19 and its potential impact on the running and greater Southern Arizona community. We have decided to cancel or postpone all events through The Gauntlet race. Please read below for details on each event.

    It was decided in the special conference that SAR will be postponing The Gauntlet 8k Trail Race scheduled for April 4, 2020. 
    We will send additional emails to update the status of these events as soon as more information is available.
    These decisions were not easy, but the Board and Race Director are taking this preventive measure to ensure the safety of the community that we care for so deeply.  We will continue to work with local and state health officials to monitor the status of COVID-19 and will communicate updates and other important information regarding this race and other events on the SAR calendar. 

    We want to be clear that these cancellations and postponements are a preventive measure. We encourage everyone to exercise appropriate caution and refer you to the following websites for guidelines on minimizing your risk:
    Centers for Disease Control (CDC): https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

    The Gauntlet 8k Race Director


    Welcome to the 5th Annual Gauntlet Trail Race at Pima Community College West Campus.

    This is a challenging 8k Cross Country race/run/walk of "The Gauntlet" course on the campus trails just north of the college.  It has moved to a morning race so we can all beat the heat!  Expect to put your toughness to to the test on these fun but at points techinical trails!  Both women's & men will be at 7:30am!

    Packet pickup will be held at The Running Shop at 3055 North Campbell on Friday, April 3rd from 4:00 to 6:00 PM.

    This is a rugged course on the desert trails of Pima College West Campus at 2202 West Anklam.  The event will take place on the track and we will have an awards ceremony at about 9:00 am.   Awards are in 10 year age groups for men and women. Trophies will be awarded along with gift certificates to The Running Shop.  

    Bring the whole family and let the kids participate in a FitKidz Mile on the track after the 8k for all kids 12 years and under.  The FitKidz Mile will start on the track after the conclusion of the trail race.  We anticipate the start to be at 8:45 AM.

For the love of all that is good and moisture wicking...

Though we try to be accurate and on top of things... Race details can change when we aren't lookin. And once in a while we simply make a mistake.

ALWAYS visit the race's website for the most complete and accurate race information.
