Tucson named a top trail running town

Posted: Updated:

Tucson is one of the top 8 trail running towns in America, according to TrailRunner Magazine. The city received the high ranking due to the large number of trail running options nearby, including Catalina State Park, the Tucson Mountains, Mt. Lemmon, Sabino Canyon, and Saguaro National Park.

The October issue of TrailRunner also mentions Tucson's desert scenery, year-round mild temperatures, easy access to cooler elevations, and demanding terrain as additional reasons for the ranking.
