Zia Rides will be back running the show at Dawn to Dusk – Arizona again on Saturday, December 9, 2017 at McDowell Mountain Regional Park.
We are working on some improvements/changes for 2017 that we hope you will like. First of all, we are going to try something new by staging from the Four Peaks Staging Area instead of the Pemberton Trailhead. We hope this will alleviate the parking and space headaches and allow for more fun at the event venue. If it doesn’t work out, we can switch back in 2018 to the old venue. Second, we plan to keep much of the Pemberton Trail in the course. But, we will have to make some updates with the addition of Cinch/Scenic trails on the way up to Pemberton Trail and Bluff/Granite/Shalmo Wash on the way back from Pemberton Trail. Third, we are going to add some age group categories for juniors, masters 50+, and old-timers 60+. Finally, with a slightly longer course, we are going to give you a chance to go for a full 12 hours at Dawn to Dusk. We are now going to start at 7am just before sunrise and finish at 7pm just an hour or so after dark.
New maps of the course and venue will be available on the website and sent out on Facebook very soon.
