Race Preview: 2018 Camelback 15k/5k (Phoenix)

Come out and support the Phoenix High School Track and Field team by registering for the 2018 Camelback 15k/5k/Elementary 1 Mile Run on March 3rd. The funds generated will help pay for entry fees, equipment, and track resurfacing.

The 15k course will take you through some back roads of Phoenix, and there will be some challenging hills ahead for you.

If you’d like to check out the routes, there’s a downloadable map available as well as in interactive map.
