DAM GOOD RUN EVENT - Lake Pleasant
Lake Pleasant Regional Park
This year's Dam event will have the 3K(2 mile)"Dam Fun," 6K(4 mile)"Dam Challenging" and the 13K(8 mile)"Dam Tough" courses along with a new 26K(16 mile)"Dam Crazy" and 40K(25 mile)"Dam Insane" course. All courses except for the 3K will go over the Waddell Dam. Come join us for a fun healthy event! Start training now, and we will have more information soon about signing up for this fun event. This day is the only day of the year you can cross over the Waddell Dam at Lake Pleasant! This year we will again feature professional timing by Aravaipa Running and they will be handling the registration for the event. Course maps will be available soon too.

There will again be a 2 mile "Dam Fun" road course (does not go on dam, but strollers are allowed on this course only), a 4 mile "Dam Challenging" course (crosses over the dam twice, and has a steep hill and an off road portion), and the 8 mile "Dam Tough" course that crosses over the dam and has many miles of diverse trails with steep hills. Added onto the "Dam Tough" course this year are two new courses the 26K "Dam Crazy" and the 40K "Dam Insane" courses.

So save the date, start training, and we will let you know when registration opens and how to register, tune back here soon!
