Colossal Cave 5k


Think Tucson’s too hot for an August race? That’s not the case when it’s the Colossal Cave 5k, a fast run showcasing the Sonoran Desert and stunning mountain peaks. You’ll enjoy cave and Stone Ramada views of the Wild West in this epic run that starts at dawn and beats the summer heat. Although it’s a fun run, there’s still $100 in cash prizes to be won and plenty of bragging rights. The cost is just $30 for registration in August, and same-day bib pick-up at 5:30 a.m. ensures you’ll make the most of the incredible dawning light.

Participants can upgrade to a tech shirt, which just might help you place in one of the categories. With proceeds benefitting the William Warneke Scholarship Fund, Colossal Cave Mountain Park is home to one of the summer’s best races. It all takes place Saturday, August 19th.

Explore Tucson in a New Light

After the race, there’s plenty of goodies and snacks to help you start the day right. Most visitors and even locals never see Tucson like this, from the sweeping desert views to the cacti and early morning critters serving as landmarks and cheering you on. It’s a road race, but with plenty of dirt trails to keep the event challenging.

Old Spanish Trail or the I-10 will take you to the starting point. For more information or to register, visit the race website.
