Aravaipa Running strives to provide a fun, welcoming, and challenging series of trail and endurance running events. Our events are an extension of our love for long distance running and the people who we meet in the sport. Aravaipa Running was founded in July of 2009 by Jamil Coury after first directing the Javelina Jundred Endurance Run in 2008. He created the vision for the company and brought it to life through the inaugural Desert Runner Trail Series events. His brother Nick Coury came on board in 2010 after graduating from college with his custom built timing system that is still in use by the company today. Aravaipa Running currently organizes over 20 trail and ultra running events per year including the Desert Runner Trail Series, Insomniac Night Series, Javelina Jundred, Flagstaff Sky Race, Crown King Scramble and Across The Years 6 day, 72 hour, 48 hour and 24 hour runs in Arizona as well as the Silverton Alpine Running Series in Silverton, Colorado.
Jamil is the founder of Aravaipa Running and is focused on the ongoing vision and community building that takes place with the company. Jamil graduated with honors from Arizona State University with degrees in Accountancy and Economics and has always been interested in owning his own business and entrepreneurship.
Hayley has a background in management and an degree in Strategic Leadership. She has been running most of her life and has been competing in ultras since 2010. Hayley oversees our event management and expanding partnerships.
