Southern Arizona Triple 50

The Southern Arizona Triple 50 poses a unique challenge to ultra-runners who want to test their mettle with a completely unique races series. To compete in the Southern Arizona Triple 50, simply register for and not-so-simply complete the 50 Mile distances at all three of the 50 Mile events in Southern Arizona in the same season.
