Team Aravaipa is a group of Arizona trail and ultrarunners committed to bettering themselves, the trail and ultrarunning community as a whole, and being ambassadors for Aravaipa Running and its races.  We are now accepting applications for the 2015 team!

Application Deadline: November 15, 2014

Aravaipa Ambassadors and the Aravaipa Racing Team

This year, we have expanded our team to include two groups: the Aravaipa Ambassadors and the Aravaipa Racing Team.  The Aravaipa Ambassadors are every day runners who love Aravaipa Running, the sport of running, and the trail running community.  Each Ambassador will have a year-long focus sharing this love through Social Media, runner Outreach, or leading a Group Run.

The Aravaipa Racing Team is our way to show what Aravaipa athletes are made of!  Each racing team member will be hand-selected for their ability to compete nationally in the 2015 season.
