The event takes place on February 16, 2025, entirely on the grounds of the newly reopened Old Tucson: passing through the gates of an old frontier town, visitors are transported back in time to the mythic Wild West. Dash down the streets of Hollywood’s most famous films and walk in the footsteps of movie legends.

The 4-mile trail race loops throughout the dusty streets, horse trails, and desert terrain of Old Tucson Studios.  The family-friendly 1-mile includes free entry for all 14-and-under.  Cowboy costumes, children, and strollers are all welcome!  See our menu pages for all details.
