About the 5K Course and the 1-Mile Course
Join us at Arizona Falls, GR Herberger Park in Arcadia in east-central Phoenix. The 5K and 1-Mile courses boast fast, flat routes on groomed dirt paths with minimal elevation changes of approximately 25 to 60 feet. A portion of the 5K also uses a paved path. The 5K course is point-to-point, and the 1-Mile is out and back. Both routes are perfect for attempting a PR (personal record or personal best) or having a fun, leisurely run, walk, or wheel.
Water will be available for runners and walkers at the finish and 5K midpoint. Restrooms are public near the start, finish, and expo area in GR Herberger Park. Running chairs, handcycles, sports wheelchairs, prostheses, walkers, canes, and sports strollers are welcome on these courses. Well-behaved leashed dogs are also welcome. When bringing a dog, you must follow all City of Phoenix pet custodial rules and regulations, including immediately cleaning up after your dog and properly disposing of its waste.
