Sabino Canyon located in the Coronado National Forest, is one of the most beautiful desert canyons in the American southwest and a true jewel of the Tucson community. SAR’s Sabino Canyon Sunset Run has one goal, to create a race worthy of the Canyon. For 37 years we believe we’ve done just that. This unique 7.4 mile race is designed to capitalize on the majestic nature of Sabino Canyon to provide a unique opportunity to experience the challenges of a great race in a truly magnificent setting.
This race is part of The Running Shop SAR Grand Prix.
