Southern Arizona Triple 50

The Southern Arizona Triple 50 is back! This unique challenge is for runners looking to finish all three of southern Arizona’s greatest ultra running events in a single season:
Colossal Vail 50 on December 10, 2022 in Vail
AZT Oracle Rumble 50 on January 28, 2023 in Oracle
Old Pueblo 50 on March 4, 2023 in Sonoita

Register for all three events here for a discounted rate, and refer to each event’s website for more details. All events take place on a portion of the Arizona National Scenic Trail, with event proceeds donated to the Arizona Trail Association to support their mission to protect, maintain, enhance, promote and sustain the Arizona Trail as a unique encounter with the natural environment.

The Southern Arizona Triple 50 has been revived for 2022-2023 thanks to the sponsorship of Team Woodall with Long Realty. Stephen Woodall & Angela Greynolds are runners and volunteers at each Triple 50 event and believe that the challenge and reward of the Southern Arizona Triple 50 is worth offering to the trail running community.

Special Prizes for All Finishers

In addition to the great event swag you’ll receive at each ultra, participating in the Southern Arizona Triple 50 gets you custom embroidered running gear to celebrate your accomplishment of finishing three 50 Milers in a single season. And not just any 50 Milers, but really hard routes along the Arizona Trail. Will you be among the few to finish this trail challenge? If so, we’ve got a custom garment for you that you’ll wear with pride on all your future adventures.

Registration Discounts

Discounted registration is offered to Native Americans, members of the Arizona Trail Association, and military veterans. Just contact matthew@aztrail.org for the coupon code before registering.
