Directions to the Trailhead:

Take I-10 east out of Tucson to exit 281, the Sonoita Highway / State Highway 83 exit. Heading south on 83, 11.5 miles from I-10, look for a picnic table/rest area on the right side of the road, turn right down the dirt road just after it, signed for Rosemont Junction (FR 231). 1.41 miles in, a cairned singletrack crosses the road. This is the start/finish for racing. A GPS is recommended for a pre-riding and during the event. Parking lot is on the left of the road, 1 mile from the highway, just before the singletrack. We will have a 1/2 mile ride from the parking lot to the singletrack.

Camping Friday and Saturday Night:

About 1 mile from said turn onto Rosemont Junction Road, there is a OHV area to camp. A few hundred yards pass this area, there is a huge lot on the left with a corral and some parking on the right side. Choose any of those spots.

Registration is CLOSED. Please check out our other events.

    Hey Chad,
    Is this race totally full? I’d like either the 29 or 46, which ever has room for more.

  22. Had something come up so going to have to give up my short course slot. Everybody have a blast and keep the rubber side down.

  23. Please remove me from the short course registration list and open up my spot. A work conflict came up and I can’t make it.

  24. Can anyone who is familiar with the course tell me about water sources? The AZT website says their is usually water at Kentucky camp. Is this potable water or is at a tank that needs to be treated?

  25. There is water at Kentucky Camp proper, a spigot.

    Anyone above can come on out and sign in on the day or registration, still a few spots now.

  26. Not going to be able to make this one. Was signed up for the short course.

  27. If there’s still room I would like to participate.


  28. Something came up, won’t be at the 46 miler this year. It’s a fantastic route for all the first timers, enjoy!!

  29. I’m out…parental duties.

  30. Won’t be able to make the 46 after all. Hope someone can use my spot!

  31. All those that are not showing up, thank you for letting me know. Enjoy your weekend!

  32. If you are camping out tonight, bring some firewood, lights (if you want to ride with us) and any drink you want to drink around the campfire. See you out there!

  33. I am a first timer. I should be there tomorrow to do the short loop if all goes well I will see you all then.

  34. Sorry, but I’m out too.
    Be safe and have fun.

  35. I’m out for the short course. Please open my spot up for someone.
