About This Activity

Come run a 5k cross country style race under the lights, on a warm summer night in Arizona. With the moon out, the stadium lights shining, glow sticks around, and a well lit course, you can experience the thrill of running a cross country race while participating under the lights for a truly unique experience.

These types of races are different, challenging, and provide for some great memories as well as some intense racing conditions. 
The event proceeds will go toward the men's and women's cross country teams at Deer Valley High School. Come out and help a local high school team, while experiencing one of the most unique racing events around.
