About This Activity

Giddy-on-up to Wickenburg's Fourth Annual Wild West Run! Cinch up your shoes, secure your hat, and come run (or walk!) through Arizona's most western town.  Following an out-and-back course beginning at Sunset Park (3020 W. Wickenburg Way, Wickenburg, AZ 85390), the race takes a gradually descending path east until reaching the 5k turnaround.  Heading south and with the majestic Vulture Peak off in the distance, 10k and half-marathon runners face a gradual climb in elevation until reaching their respective turnaround points.  10k participants turn around just beyond Wickenburg's Los Caballeros Golf Course, while half-marathon runners continue through Wickenburg's scenic terrain and gently rolling hills for another 3.45 miles before turning back. Having gradually ascended above the town, the turnaround gives participants a picturesque view of Wickenburg and it's surrounding beauty.  You won't find a more beautiful run in all of Arizona.  Enjoy the run!  But remember--you can run in your spurs; just don't squat.
