Course Summary
Hypnosis is our third race in the 2019 Insomniac Night Trail Run Points Series. Choose from distances of 6K, 14K, 20K, 34K and 54K. If you’re really loving those night miles, stick around for more fun and run the Insomniac Wave of your choice to earn a special “Double Down” award. If you’re not ready to double your distance, but you want to run under the bright stars of a new moon dark night, sign up for either the 14K or 6K Full Moon wave.

We’re changing things up this year, and moving on up to the WEST side. Though it’s been fun embracing the challenge of the competitive track course, we think you’ll have a blast on our new route utilizing pieces of the Coldwater, Toothaker, Dysart, Butterfield trails and more. You’ll still find plenty of rolling desert trails on single track with fast smooth sections and challenging mountainous sections.

    Expect Hot running conditions at the start with temperatures typically in the high 90’s or above 100 degrees (yes, seriously). We will have plenty of ice and water on course to keep you hydrated. This is a great race to bring out your head wrap/buff and keep it wet as well as adding ice to it.

    Course Marking
    The race courses will be well marked with orange plastic ribbons with black polka dots and reflective medallions. Trail junctions and turns will be well marked with laminated signs. In addition, blue & white checkerboard plastic flagging will be hung to designate non-race or “WRONG WAY” trails. All runners are responsible for understanding the layout of the course. Please familiarize yourself with the course maps on our website prior to race day and/or print a map to bring along with you.

    Aid Stations
    In addition to a fully stocked aid station at the start/finish line at the Main Start/Finish area, there will be one fully stocked remote aid station- Coldwater Aid- located along the south end of the course loop. The Coldwater & Main aid stations will be stocked with water, ice, electrolyte drinks (Gatorade), salty and sweet snacks, fruit, pb&j, bean rollups, hot food (quesadillas, grilled cheese), and more.

    54 Km Runners must leave for their final Long Loop by 2:00 AM.
    Final cutoff is 5 AM (10 Hours for the 54K).

    Crews & Pacers
    Pacers are allowed for the 54k starting with the fourth loop (38k). Pacers are not allowed for any other distance. Crews are allowed at the race start/finish only.

    Drop Bags
    We will have an area specified for your personal drop bag at the start/finish area that will allow for easy and quick access.

    There is camping available within the main park. For more information, go here.

    Trail Running and Trash
    Please respect the trails and the beauty of the desert by disposing of any trash at one of our aid stations.

    Reminder: All Insomniac Night trail runs will be CUPLESS. This means there will be no cups for soda, electrolyte drink, water, etc. Bring your own or Aravaipa branded reusable cups will be available for purchase!

    Trail Etiquette
    Remember to always remain on designed trails, no short cutting.
    If you decide to use headphones, please be respectful of runners behind you attempting to pass. Also, remove ear buds as you approach aid stations or a road crossing.
    Please do not listen to music without headphones on course.

    This course includes some legit single track. If you are fast and attempting to pass, please alert the runner in front of you before flying past them. Likewise, if you hear a runner approaching you from behind, attempt to find a spot to allow the runner to pass.

    As a general rule, when passing a runner, announce, “on your left.”
    Uphill runners/hikers have the right of way to downhill runners. Remain in control as you descend and respect the other runners.
    Everyone is after the same goal here so let’s be respectful of each other’s races and have fun. Please.

    For the safety of all runners, no pets are allowed on-course at the night runs. Any pets at the race must be on a leash at all times, respect park rules, and be supervised.

    If you would like to join our volunteer team, we are looking for help with event setup, aid station, and event breakdown. Volunteer perks include a piece of Aravaipa merchandise or race goody and Aravaipa Race Credits. You can see our current opportunities and signup here: Hypnosis Night Runs Volunteer Form.
