Goodyear, Ariz. (September 24, 2012) – Nearly 1,500 participants will run around Estrella’s North and South Lakes in the Arizona Half Marathon and 5K Hometown Race Series on Saturday, October 6. The Estrella community promotes healthy lifestyles and residents take advantage of active outdoor amenities available in the master-planned community including more than 20 miles of hiking and biking trails, several parks and two large lakes.
“A community based on healthy ideals is the perfect fit for hosting such a race,” said Amy Vasquez, Estrella resident and executive director of Estrella Multi-Sport, a nonprofit that organizes race opportunities in the West Valley. “Estrella is a very active community and we could not be happier to welcome back the Arizona Half Marathon.”
This is the second time Estrella has hosted the Arizona Half Marathon, 5K and 1-Mile Kid’s Run. This year’s event will also feature a Half Marathon Trail Run that will showcase the miles of hiking and bike paths within the community.
