Come BRAY with us at the beautiful, historic Empire Ranch! Nestled in the gorgeous rolling hills of the Las Cienegas National Conservation Area near Sonoita, AZ, this race weekend will be filled with unbeatable desert scenery, great trails, and lots of burro based fun. BRAY will be offering a short course (between 3 and 5 miles, TBD) and long course (between 7 and 9 miles, TBD) with first through third place prizes being offered for each. We will do our best to get accurate course distances, but with a trail run there is often some wiggle room. Be sure to bring your camp chairs and s'mores supplies, as the ranch offers some of the most amazing unimpeded stargazing around, and you'll want to hang out around the camp fire (moisture levels permitting) to take in all the beauty of the desert at night.
