Wickenburg's Wild West Run Race Description

Giddy-on-up to Wickenburg's Wild West Run! Cinch up your shoes, secure your hat, and come run (or walk!) through Arizona's most western town.  Following an out-and-back course beginning at Sunset Park (3020 W. Wickenburg Way, Wickenburg, AZ 85390), the race takes a gradually descending path east until reaching the 5k turnaround.  Heading south and with the majestic Vulture Peak off in the distance, 10k and half-marathon runners face a gradual climb in elevation until reaching their respective turnaround points.  10k participants turn around just beyond Wickenburg's Los Caballeros Golf Course, while half-marathon runners continue through Wickenburg's scenic terrain and gently rolling hills for another 3.45 miles before turning back. Having gradually ascended above the town, the turnaround gives participants a picturesque view of Wickenburg and its surrounding beauty.  You won't find a more beautiful run in all of Arizona.  Enjoy your run!  And yes!  You can run in your spurs; just don't squat!

Fun Run

My mom and a few friends put on this run and they do a great job. All the money raised goes to Youth clubs of Wickenburg. I have ran this twice and it is great and the atmosphere down there is so fun. Everyone should give it a try.

Fun for the whole family

This is always a fun event for my family. I have participated in it both with my kids and by myself. My children love the 1 mile fun run! It helps support the community too.

Fun and scenic race

Be sure to train on hills for this, the course is out and back, and the out is mostly uphill. It runs out of town and down Vulture Mine Road, the same stretch as Ragnar, and the desert scenery is fantastic. The course support was great, there were water stations every 1.5 miles or so, hosted by local teams and running clubs. I enjoyed the whole experience and will be running again in 2020.

Well-organized, fun family time

My husband and I participated in this race twice. It’s at the perfect time of year for quality AZ weather and is a great way to get outside and enjoy the outdoors. One year I ran competitively and the next year I was pregnant so I walked with a friend—both times were a blast! My husband competed 3 times— the 5k, 10k and 1/2 marathon. The team does a great job at organizing the event, while supplying fun Wild West props as well as snacks and some entertainment. Really anyone can have a great time at this event!

Last year was my first time running this race and it was one for the books. I did the 1/2 marathon and let me tell ya, this course is TOUGH! Definitely not what I was expecting, but that's on me as I should have looked at the elevation map better. However, I still had a great time and the course support was really well done, especially for a race this small. Very impressed with the organization and the before and after fun that they offer. Excited for round 2 this year and I'm recruiting as many of my running buddies as I can! :)

Love this race, so when I moved out of state, I continue to sign up for the virtual race. Sad to report that I never received my race packet this year.
