Why: A big change this year, we have a naming sponsor, REI. REI and the CCTR have the same goals, preserve open space land for future use in outdoor recreation, conservation and preservation. The Town of Cave Creek, in partnership with Desert Foothills Land Trust is engaging in a monumental effort to preserve 4,000 acres of pristine Sonoran Desert lands surrounding Cave Creek. This trail run is not only a fundraising event, it is also an event to raise awareness of our beautiful desert. All of the proceeds will go towards the purchase of this open space land.

Race Description: The route will take you through some of the most pristine Sonoran Desert found in Arizona. The primitive trails will take you through sandy washes, up over hills and down the other side, over loose rock and stiff ones too. There is going to be one egg hidden on each route. Whoever brings it back to the finish line will receive a special prize. The scenery is so beautiful you’ll almost for get your working hard. You will be in the middle of a tremendous amount of flora and fauna; a perfect setting for a trail run, and a perfect place to save from future development.
