Arizona runners don't stop running as the temperatures rise - we just get started a little earlier!
Join us as we celebrate our 6th Annual Arizona Sunrise Series
presented by First Watch!
Why run in just one event when you can save so much by registering for the remainder of the Series! (7 total events)
And don't forget - this is a StartLine Racing Series which means big prizes!!
Get points for every event you complete, with extra points being awarded based on your age group and overall finish.
At the end of the series the top 100 point earners, plus all participants that complete at least 4 of the 7 series events,
will be entered into our Arizona Sunrise Series Prize Drawing.
Along with great prizes from StartLine and our sponsors, three people will walk away with a $500 gift card
(which we suggest you use to get out of the Phoenix heat!)
Overall awards will be given out at the end of the series on August 18th
Check out the full Arizona Sunrise Series Rules and Regulations here.
All events feature a 5K distance.
If you are wanting to register for the entire series but will be out of town or unable to attend 1-2 of the events you can do those events virtually. After registering please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the race dates and we will mail your swag to you.
The 2019 Arizona Sunrise Series serves as a fundraiser for St. Mary's Food Bank.
St. Mary’s distributes food to nearly 500 nonprofits partners in 13 Arizona counties. These agencies include food pantries, dining halls, homeless shelters, and more.
One in three children in Arizona lives in poverty and is at risk of going to bed hungry tonight. Arizona ranks 47th out of 50 states in the number of children who may not know where their next meal is coming from. Our vision is to see that no child goes to bed hungry, so they can live healthy and productive lives. In response to these needs, St. Mary’s Food Bank operates programs that fight child hunger, including Kids Cafe® and the Backpack Program.
The Community Kitchen is a life skills and food service training program for those with barriers to employment. Students gain the skills to get jobs offering livable wages, benefits, and opportunities for advancement through hands-on food service training as well as classroom studies.
To register by mail please complete and return our Mail-in Registration Form! Please make checks payable to StartLine Racing.
Of course we want you to participate in the Arizona Sunrise Series locally but we understand things come up. So, if you can't join us this summer and still want to run, get the medal, attachments and shirts (if chosen) then you still can! Here is your chance to take part in this event no matter where you are! And of course, all prices include shipping!
Virtual Series registration includes main finisher's medal, all 7 location attachments and all 7 shirts. You do have the option of only selecting 1 event shirt and receiving 1 Free StartLine Racing Entry to a Future 4 Mile, 5K, or 1 Mile Distance (StartLine Racing Event Only). You will receive the medal, the shirt and the first attachment in the first shipment and the rest will be mailed out every two weeks for the remainder of the series.
Prior to the each event all virtual participants will receive an email with instructions on how to submit your time. You have until August 12th to submit your times to earn your points towards the end of series prize drawing. For each set of results you submit you will earn points. At the end of the series the top 100 point earners, plus all participants that complete at least 4 of the 7 series events, will be entered into our Arizona Sunrise Series Prize Drawing.
