Mt Lemmon Retired

In order to accomplish our mission of providing runners the fastest and best races possible, we occasionally have to retire an event. It is possible that this race may return in a future year. In the meantime, join us at a current REVEL race.

Runners who participated in past editions of REVEL Mt Leeom can still access their historic results, photos, and videos using the Photo/Results page. Likewise, runners who deferred their race entry from a retired event may redeem their deferment credit at any of the other REVEL races.
