Organiser's Description

Discover Arizona Mining Country

The Copper Corridor Trail Runs depart from the old mining town of Superior, Arizona which serves as the start & finish line. Runners will head West of town towards Arnette Canyon where they will enter a riparian wonderland of flowing creeks, towering rock formations and dense sycamore trees.
31 km entrants will traverse the length of Arnette to Picketpost Trailhead and get a taste of the Arizona Trail for two miles before returning back to town. 50 km runners will continue South bound on the Arizona Trail for a circumnavigation of the mighty Picketpost Mountain before making their way back to Superior to finish on Main Street!
Race Information

This soon to be well known area is currently a hidden gem in Arizona. Be one of the first to discover this amazing area of Arizona which is not too far from Phoenix geographically, but a world away in so many ways. Discover the beauty and history of this land rich in resources and views.
With a race start & finish right in downtown Superior this is an Aravaipa race you won’t soon forget. You’ll soon leave the quite town behind as you venture into rugged and awesome desert country complete with Saguaro cactus forests, flowing creeks and rock formations reminiscent of the Superstition Wilderness or Bryce Canyon.
For those looking for a full day’s worth of adventure, sign up for the 50K which features many miles of the Arizona Trail and a loop around the iconic Picketpost Mountain!
Be sure to stick around for and afternoon of exploring Main Street, taking in the sights and sharing some well earned post race refreshments around town. Several bars will have live music Saturday evening.
