The 2021 Pine Trail Run has been canceled due to COVID-19. However, the 2022 race is on! The 2022 event will include the 5K and 9 mile races from the 2019 event plus a 50K race. After we coordinate with the numerous non-profit organizations required to successfully execute the race we will update our website and open registration.

The 3rd “annual” race will be on May 7th, 2022.
Our 1st race in 2018 featured an 8.3 mile trail run and 113 runners. In 2019 we included a 5K, increased the longer run to 9 miles and had 138 total runners.
For 2022 we added a 50K, which ascends and descends the Mogollon Rim.
All 3 races will finish at the Pine Trailhead, just south of beautiful Pine Arizona. The 5K and 9 mile runners will be provided a complementary burrito breakfast while the 50K runners will be treated to a BBQ dinner at the Pine Trailhead. The Pine Trail Run will be limited to 300 runners.
The Pine Trail Run is a non-profit event hosted by Pine Strawberry Fuel Reduction (PSFR), Inc. It is supported by many volunteers and 8 local non-profit organizations. It is truly a community event.
The race courses run along the Mogollon Rim at about 6000 ft. elevation, mostly on trails built and maintained by the PSFR trail crew and the Arizona Trail Association. The PSFR trail crew works all year long maintaining and improving the Pine area trails in the Tonto National Forest. As a member of the trail crew I can say that we enjoy meeting people from all over coming to Pine and enjoying our trails.
We have free camping in the Tonto National Forest adjacent to the parking and provide a shuttle service to/from the start and finish areas.
