Join us for the inaugural Parhelic Circle Trail Races at the Flagstaff Nordic Village on July 27-28, 2019. This event is organized by the same folks who bring you the Flagstaff to Grand Canyon Stagecoach Line 100 Mile, 55K, Relays and 100 Mile Mountain Bike Race.

The Parhelic Circle Races include 6, 12 and 24-hour solo and relay events and an 8K trail race. The races will be held on single-track and two-track ponderosa and aspen lined trails at 8,000 feet high in the Arizona mountains 25 minutes north of downtown Flagstaff.

Make it a weekend by building your team, camping under the cool pines, covering some trail miles, and spending time with other runners around a night time bonfire.

The timed solo and relay events start at noon on Saturday July 27th. The 8K begins at 9am on Sunday July 28th.
