About This Activity

Beware!!  Beware!!!!  'Tis the ides of March and Run 4 Cover has something special planned for you!  You don't have to be Irish to run the Tough Irishman 10 Miler, but you do have to be TOUGH!  This is a perfect training run for those crazies out there training for Bataan.  The run starts on the corner of Ocotillo and Scenic and will travel up Alamo Canyon Rd to the water tower.  There you will turn around, and head back down Scenic toward First Street.  You will then do one loop of Desert Foothills Park and then go back towards Scenic.  You'll continue on Scenic to Tenth, where you'll travel up 10th to Paiute Trail (just under the "A").  Turn left onto Cherokee Trail to Comanche Trail and turn right onto Thunder Road.  Go to Melanie Lane and do the loop.  Come back down Thunder Road to Scenic, north on Scenic to Space Museum Road where the finish line and some delicious BBQ awaits!  The race will culminate at the Space Hall with catered lunches from Can't Stop Smokin' and a good 'ol fashioned party complete with Irish jigs,  all included with the price of registration.   All participants will get a finishers tee. Race will start at 9AM.  Keep in mind you'll be parking on South Scenic and finishing at the Space Hall, so runners may want to coordinate with loved ones or friends to drop you off for your fate at the starting line.  If you think you could totally conquer the 10 but have some wimpy reason for wimping out, we're also offering a 5K distance too!  More details to come and look out for our map on our Facebook page!
