The New Desert Runner Trail Series!

Noah Dougherty Community 0 Comments


As we continue to evolve as a running company and do our best to bring you the greatest events around, we have created all new logos for our Desert Runner Trail Series (DRT) that will begin on October 14th at the Cave Creek Regional Park and concludes in April with our Dam Good Run at Lake Pleasant. Keep an eye out as we unveil individual logos for all eight races in the coming weeks!

The series passes have a whole new design (thanks to our designer Sophia!) as they’ll encompass their own Sonoran Desert bird, specific to each distance level. We’ve even added an Evolution style pass for the fall (and spring) series called the Phoenix Pass that will give you the opportunity to build from an 11 Km to 25 Km to 50 Km! The Phoenix Pass for the Spring Series will take runners from a 9 Km to 50 Km over four races!

You asked for it, we listened: our Desert Runner Trail Series will now include our Quail (Short Series) & Roadrunner (Mid Series) passes in the DRT Series Standings and will get their own podium awards at the conclusion of the series! For more information on the series competition, head here.

If you haven’t had a chance to run these trails, here is a great opportunity! Our Thriller course uses the Maricopa Trail (50 Km & 24 Km) and traverses some great single track within the regional park. The Pass Mountain trail runs skirt the gorgeous Goldfield mountain range and Tonto National Forest trails while the McDowell Mountain Frenzy travels over all sorts of terrain within the regional park and McDowell Sonoran Preserve.
