We invite you to participate in the next annual Pine Trail Run on May 2, 2020. These trail races follows a scenic forest route just below the edge of the iconic Mogollon Rim, near Pine, Arizona. See the archives of the 2019 and 2018 races. For this year we again feature 5k route as a shorter trail run option and are considering a 50k route too.
The Rim Country, which includes the area from Pine-Strawberry through Payson to Christopher Creek, is within the largest stand of beautiful Ponderosa Pine trees in the world. What may be less obvious is the ongoing threat of catastrophic forest fire.
Like the annual Fire on the Rim Mountain Bike Race, the Pine Trail Run is aimed at bringing visitors to appreciate the beauty of the region as well as to raise funds for the Pine Strawberry Fuel Reduction programs of wildfire prevention, trail advocacy, and new trail development.
