Next "I Run For AJHS Athletics Series -- Dec. 15

Join Apache Junction Parks and Recreation and Apache Junction High School athletics for a fun, running/walking series in our community. Each event will give walkers and runners a choice of distances from approximately 2miles to 4miles in length. All events benefit a local AJHS Athletic sports team and the profits go directly to the team for uniforms, clinics, equipment, camp expenses, etc. Participants will receive a medal at the finish line.

Our December Rudolph Run will benefit the AJ Prospector Football team. The route will start and end at Flatiron Park (100 N. Apache Trail). Check-in begins at 9 a.m. and the run/walk will start at 9:30 a.m. New this year! The annual Holiday Hustle will also be on site offering fun fitness activities for all ages at the park while they warm up or wait for family members to finish their run. Team members and parents will be on-site volunteering and will be drumming up registrants for this event. It is only $20 to enter and the proceeds directly benefit the team. Thanks to the support of Lost Dutchman Marathon Inc., all students can participate for $10 each (use coupon code: AJ18). Visit the registration page at or sign up the morning of the event (youth must have a parent fill out a registration form in order to participate).

We would like to thank our local business sponsors of the AJ Football program for their continued support: AJ Mounted Rangers, Arizona Fine Floors, Frank’s Auto and Truck Salvage, Frontier Ace Hardware, James Downs Insurance Agency, Rip’s NAPA Auto Parts, Rock Steady Transport LLC, Rosati’s Pizzeria, Superstition Mountain Promotional Corporation, Suzanne Daniels – Your Real Estate Matchmaker DeElite Realty, The Little Prospector, Treasure Chest Granite Pit LLC, Universal Heating & Cooling LLC, and Western Lifestyle Realty.
