XTERRA McDowell Mountain Trail Run

With over 80 miles of trails to choose from, McDowell Mountain Regional Park is a trail runner's paradise and our venue for race #5 of the XTERRA Arizona Trail Run Series. The 15-mile long course features a gradual climb full of cholla forests and fields of beaver tails. It is one giant loop with a short out and back down to Dixie Mine (and a treat at the turn around). The shorter 7K course is easily defined by its name, the Scenic Trail. Following a counterclockwise loop, the rocky climb at mile 1 will keep you on your toes.
