Yep… it’s that time agin! We’r busier than bees plannin the 2019 Redneck Run. Y’all loved the course at Phoenix Rio Salado Habitat so we’ll be there again this year, with some fun “Redneck Games” to git y’all ready for runnin a little bit hilly course! We’re hoping the great kids from Ironwood High School Key Club will be there again again this year to do so many fun games!
We’d be fibbin if we said it was flat, but it sure is purdy. Y’all will be goin up and down a bit on the first 5k (about 140 feet) but the second 5k only has one bitty hill. So what the heck, do the 10k! It’s a great way to be experiencing the new Rio Salado Habitat. Watch for burrowing owls!
It’s a pretty easy trail to follow. There are only 3 intersections on the course and each of them is marked with a Rio Salado sign and cairn.
Parking is at SEALCO, 215 E Watkins St, Phoenix, AZ 85004
Exit the I17 on Central Avenue SOUTH. Go LEFT on Watkins Street, RIGHT on E. University Drive, and park in the SEALCO parking lot. We’ll have some volunteers helpin direct y’all.
Save some pennies by gittin yerself pre-registerd, but if y’all forgit, you kin sign yerself (and all yer buddies) up the Day-Of-Race. If you are already registered, no need to be runnin around the day before. Y’all kin pick up your packet the mornin of the race between 7 and 9 am. Come on over early… we’ll be havin some “Redneck Games” to keep y’all occupied!
Y’all r gonna luv this new location – the Rio Salado Habitat, 2439 S. Central, Phoenix 85004
The city has dun a right amazin job of restorin the riparian area. Y’all might even see sum of them “burrowing owls”. The Redneck Run’ll be helpin by donating a tree fer of each of our winners.
Yah, we took a year off… but we are back for 2018 in a NEW DATE and a NEW LOCATION y’all are gonna love. Y’all will be runnin (or walkin) on the path along the Rio Salado river. No cars, no noise… jest the outdoors! Mark yer calendar – SATURDAY NOVEMBER 17, 2018. Kids and Dogs welcome!!!
Action Media took some great photos of the 2017 run. You kin git em at http://www.actionmedia.photos/2017-redneck-run
Don’t yu’all go worryin about that…yu won’t be sitting at this event. Yu’ll be busier than hogs in a wallow running, walking, singin and dancin. Save yur sittin for when yu amble up up to the bar after at Whiskey Rose.
We won’t be chargin yu fer the fun ‘n games in Honky Tonk Village. Yu might even git home with more than yu came in with! There’ll be prizes for singin, decoratin those plungers, and playin games. Yu kin even score a prize fur what yer wearin!
5k ain’t evn as far as the cows go to pasture, but if yer skeerd uh runnin alone, bring a bud and do the relay. Or yu kin do the country mile. Just come on out and join the fun!
We won’t be having no weddins, but there’ll be a great party goin’ on. Westerlyn will be on the Honky Tonk stage at the start/finish o’ the run. On the course, you’ll be runnin past the Geetars, Casey Lee Smith and Mary Hoffman.
If y’all have some friends, they might be wantin to meet u out there on the course. Them there bands r gonna be playin from 9 to 10:30. G’on out an keep ’em company!
