The Oracle Rumble takes place near the beautiful, historic town of Oracle, Arizona, located just north of Tucson on the north side of the mighty Santa Catalina Mountains. The event is mostly single-track through Oracle State Park (OSP) and following magnificent and remote sections of the Arizona Trail (AZT). The course is constantly rolling, making this a very challenging event for all distances. The views are breathtaking!

This event benefits, and is brought to you by, the Arizona Trail Association (ATA) and a local trail ultra-runner and race director with many years of experience directing and participating in running events of all kinds. We also have an amazing group of experienced volunteers to help ensure you have a truly memorable experience. We have a collective love for the outdoors, trail running, Arizona’s wild landscapes, and the Arizona National Scenic Trail.

We are an ultra-marathon at heart and offer distances of 50 Miles and a 50K. Not to worry if you don’t feel quite ready for those distances, we also have a half-marathon and 12K entirely on the awesome trails within OSP!
