44th Annual Big Brothers Big Sisters of Flagstaff ...

Presented by Big Brothers Big Sisters at Thorpe Park

Join the 2nd oldest half marathon in Arizona sponsored by Kinney Construction Services! While we are hosting our 44th annual race in person on August 14th, we will also offer a virtual race that you can run anywhere or on course!  For those who wish to run virtually between August 8th and August 22nd, we will be offering the free RaceJoy App that will allow you to follow the beautiful course that starts at Thorpe Park (do note no longer Wheeler Park!) and climbs the steep urban trail onto Observatory Mesa (where astronomers discovered Pluto) and follows dirt roads on with spectacular views of the San Francisco Peaks. Elevations range between 6900 ft at the start, to 7600 ft at the turn around! The 5K is also on Observatory Mesa. ALL proceeds benefit BBBSF Mentoring Programs!
