North Rim Ramble, Half-Marathon & 7 mile - August 28
This one-of-a-kind trail running event includes some of the Arizona Trail's most

Arizona, passing through an idyllic forest of spruce, pine, and aspen; past
shallow ponds, springs; and in and out of limestone canyons. Volunteers are
needed to support the event — various shifts and opportunities are available
including aid stations, course monitors and start/finish line. For more
