Festivus Gear:  

All participants will receive a Festivus Long Sleeve tee, a Commemorative Festivus Finisher’s Medal and Finisher’s Certificate.


We will make an impact:  

$5 dollars of each entry fee will be donated and 100% of donations will go to St. Mary’s Food Bank.  It is a tough time for many of our Arizona neighbors and they are turning to St. Mary’s Food Bank for help.  St. Mary’s Food Bank serves to alleviate hunger through the gathering and distribution of food while encouraging self-sufficiency, collaboration, advocacy and education.  

Please consider making an additional donation when registering.
