Cave Creek, AZ

the Cave Creek Thriller hosts four different distances and acts as the third race of the Fall Desert Runner Trail Series. What began as a looped course within the Cave Creek Regional Park years ago, 50K runners will have the unique opportunity to connect two regional parks in one day! Starting at the Agua Fria Trailhead near Lake Pleasant, you’ll travel along the Maricopa Trail, a short section of the Black Canyon Trail, pass through the Anthem Trailhead along a desert corridor, climb past Spear S Ranch and finally enter Cave Creek Regional Park to finish along the Go John, Quartz & Overton Trails.
