Our Core Values
The mountains are calling and I must go.John Muir
We grew up exploring the deserts, mountains, canyons and forests of Arizona. Getting outdoors is part of our heritage and is in our blood. We feel most alive on a trail, experiencing the solitude and restorative power of nature. Come explore with us.
We are more than just an event management company. We are committed to the development of a vibrant community centered around being active in the outdoors.
We started our weekly group run for this purpose and it really feels like family. Form new friendships and get involved, we are waiting with open arms.
Attention to detail
It’s been said that its the little things that count. Our events strive to impress even on the smallest detail. From our course markings, pre-race email, chip timing, convenient packet pickups to unique awards we want to make your event experience flawlessly smooth and something you can count on.
Did we miss something? We guarantee to make it right. Contact us and we’ll be glad to help.
We Create Fun
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.Hellen Keller
What is an event if it isn’t fun? We aim to create a fun yet laid back vibe at our events that intangibly just makes you have a good time. From music to wood fired pizza, beer gardens, meeting new friends, beautiful trails to stunning sunrises and star filled nights, having fun is easy.
