McDowell Sonoran Challenge

3rd Annual Challenge
Take the Challenge! Bike, Hike, or Run in State Trust Land designated for conservation, and help spread the message that the Preserve needs to be completed.

The timed Challenge was held on Saturday, February 28 at Alma School Road, north of Dynamite. Parking was provided at the shopping center on the corner of Alma School Road and Dynamite thanks to Hurd Real Estate, and a shuttle was available to take people to the trailhead. Separate courses for mountain bikes, trail runners and hikers would lead participants through beautiful mountains and desert. Hikers experienced the historic Brown’s Ranch on their 9 mile trip, riders biked a 22 mile course past Granite Mountain and Balanced Rock and runners raced 15K past Cone Mountain.

The post-challenge fitness expo and celebration was held from 9 a.m. until Noon and included food and beverage, music, merchandise and fun for hike, bike and runner enthusiasts of all ages.
