About The Groom Creek Classic Run

The Groom Creek Classic Run, held on September 21, 2024, in Prescott, AZ, is a half marathon race that promises breathtaking scenery and a challenging course. Nestled in the cool Ponderosa Pine forest of Groom Creek, just 5 miles south of Prescott, this race offers an unforgettable experience for runners seeking both natural beauty and a test of their endurance.

While the 5k and fun run courses stick to smooth pavement with rolling hills, the 10k and half marathon courses take runners on an adventure through the forest, incorporating smooth and wide dirt forest roads. This combination of varied terrain adds an extra layer of excitement and adventure to the race, ensuring that every step is memorable.

To promote sustainability and environmental consciousness, the race organizers have implemented a cupless course. Instead of paper or plastic cups, all runners will be provided with a reusable and foldable hydration bottle at registration. Alternatively, runners can wear their preferred hydration pack. Water stations along the course will allow runners to refill their bottles or hydration packs, ensuring they stay hydrated without contributing to waste.

Furthermore, to reduce unnecessary waste, runners are encouraged to bring their own swag bag. Each participant will receive an event t-shirt and a foldable hydration bottle, eliminating the need for plastic bags. However, small plastic garbage bags will be available upon request. Additionally, there will be a free bag check service for runners’ convenience.

As a runner, you will not only take home the satisfaction of completing a challenging race but also be rewarded with fabulous swag. All participants receive an event t-shirt and a foldable hydration bottle. Moreover, finishers of the half marathon will proudly wear a finisher medal, while the top three finishers in each age group across all races will receive well-deserved medals.

Prescott, with its rich history and vibrant community, offers countless attractions for runners and their families to explore. From its charming downtown area to its expansive trail networks, this city has something for everyone. Moreover, September in Prescott brings pleasant weather, with mild temperatures and crisp mountain air, providing the perfect conditions for a race.

So lace up your running shoes, prepare for an adventure through picturesque forests, and get ready to make memories that will last a lifetime at the Groom Creek Classic Run. Join us for an unforgettable race experience where challenges meet beauty, camaraderie pervades, and the joy of crossing the finish line awaits. See you at the starting line for a race you won’t want to miss!
