About This Activity

Discover the beauty, tranquility, and culture of Arizona's captivating Sonoran Desert!  The race will start and finish at the beautiful We Ko Pa Resort and Casino.

The weekend kicks off Saturday Evening with the "Return of the One Mile" Run.
It promises to be fast!

Then the two-distance duathlon format is the perfect event for those seasoned multi-sport athletes and the first-time participants. The short course can be completed on a typical mountain or even a comfort-style bike. Over the years, Prs Fit has introduced thousands of people to the world of multi-sport .  If you’re looking for a good beginners race or a nice tune-up for your upcoming triathlon season, join us at at the Peaks!

With the weekend solely dedicated to racers and their families, this closed, mostly flat bike course will prove to be one of the safetest (and fastest!!) courses in the Southwestern United States.  Best yet, your family and friends will be able to see you up close and cheer you on as your pass directly in front of them and into our easily accessible transition area.  Then head out on a one or two loop run course that will take you along a combination of paved and cactus lined desert at the foot of the Four Peaks.  Finally you bring it home on a slightly downhill push to the finish at We Ko Pa Resort!
