    Participants in this race agree to abide by the Center for Disease Control (CDC)’s recommendations for the prevention of the spread of COVID-19 and attest to having read the CDC’s guidance at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/prevention.html and agree to abide by any COVID-19 distancing and other safety guidelines issued by the state, the community, or by this race for participation in this race.  Participants agree to follow COVID-19 guidelines including wearing a mask/face covering unless able to maintain 6 ft of social distance.

    Participant and burro starting the race must remain a connected team throughout the race (BURRO EXCHANGING NOT ALLOWED). If participant becomes separated from their burro (participant and burro are no longer racing as a connected team), the runner must link back up with the burro and return to the place they became separated before continuing the race. Failure to follow these rules will result in disqualification. The winning combination consists of the participant and burro team to cross the finish line. The participant may be leading or following the burro. The burro's nose crossing the finish line first constitutes the winner.  *Rules borrowed from the Western Pack Burro Ass-ociation 

    This is not a beginners course for burros.  There is a tunnel obstacle and a few sections of the trail that require fancy footwork.  Elevation gain is 233 ft with max elevation at 4801 ft.  No dogs allowed for this 5K.

    If you would like to run this race with a burro, please call 520-212-0100 or e-mail suzanne.burrobuddies@gmail.com.  The race registration fee is separate than your rental agreement with the Burro Buddies.

    Please visit Triangle T Guest Ranch for accommodations- dry camping, rv sites, and casitas.  

    If you are traveling with your burros, guest pens are available at Triangle T Guest Ranch at no extra charge.   

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