Welcome to the 5th annual Estrella Mountain Trail Fest. The event consists of a point to point half marathon, 10K while the 5K course is an out and back. The routes run through and around the Estrella Mountain Regional park mountain range. All courses are trail runs and have scenic views of the surrounding mountains.
This is a very special year as this is our "RECYCLE YEAR" . What is theRECYCLE YEAR? Our event tries to be as green as possible, therefor every 5 years we will reuse our previous years medals as finisher medals. This will help our planet by not using new materials and recycling previous years medals. This year you will have the chance to select which medal you would like to get after your cross the finish line. In addition to recycling previous years medals we will pass the savings to our participants as we will not have a medal expense this year, lowering our registration fees.
