Why we run this event:
As you know, we love running, we love biking, and we are passionate about building a family and community that enjoys multi-sport events together.
We found that it is best to have a partner to train and compete with – an accountability partner makes it that much easier to get up, get out, and have some fun. This event stems from the basic premise that sports and fitness routines work better with a friend.
This event will be full of adventure and has a festive atmosphere. The run/bike course will set the tone for the day, but the fun will carry on with camaraderie and post-race festivities.
We found our partner: Flagstaff Extreme! Mountain Man Events and Flag Extreme provide ways to experience Northern Arizona like no other. We are working together to ensure that you get your money’s worth when you come to this event with a great course, post-race festivities, and more.
Whether you are local or visiting, Flagstaff is truly a remarkable place to get outdoors, enjoy the fresh air, and have some fun. Come out to challenge yourself or take your time. Bring family, a friend, a work partner – an adventure is better with a friend.
