It will fill up quickly! Phoenix Summit Challenge is an extremely popular event, and though we would love to allow everyone who is interested to participate, we must put limitations on the number of participants to ensure the safety of the event. The event has historically filled to capacity within moments of the start of registration. We apologize in advance to anyone who is unable to participate, and we strongly recommend that you review the registration tips listed above.
Registrations are non-refundable and non-transferable. Due to the popularity of the event and limited number of available spots in each challenge, all registrations are strictly first-come-first-serve, non-refundable, and non-transferable.
This is a rain or shine event. The Phoenix Summit Challenge is an outdoor event that is susceptible to environmental conditions that are often unpredictable and can change quickly. Please review weather conditions as we near the event date, and plan accordingly.
Mandatory Bag Pick-Up & Expo. Join us on Saturday, November 13th from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. at the Longview Neighborhood Recreation Center (4040 N. 14th St.) for the mandatory Bag Pick-Up & Expo.

Additionally, you can complete your electronic tracking system registration, visit promotional booths from some of our great sponsors, get your State Forty Eight souvenir tank top, purchase extra meals for guests that you are bringing to the UROCK Festival, and to stock up on beer tokens!
No hiker times will be posted. This event is a non-competitive hiking challenge. The electronic tracking system is used solely as a safety feature and is meant to help event coordinators track the location of hikers. It will not provide an accurate measure of completion times. Additionally, we will not be tracking the order in which participants finish the challenge. Please note, we will be providing the contracted electronic tracking company with the first name, last name, and zip code of each participant.
