As many of our followers know, Arizona Raptor Runs does not charge for our events and we currently have no plans to change this. However, for each event we have chosen to have a charity in which we encourage those attending to donate to in lieu of any typical registration fees associated with these types of offroad events.
For our very first charity event, we have chosen The Semper Fi Fund by recommendation of one of our supporters, Army Sergeant First Class Caleb Brewer (Ret.). Caleb was injured during his time in service and knows the very real sacrifices and issues our veterans face on a daily basis. That's where organizations such as SFF step in. The Semper Fi Fund provides immediate financial assistance and lifetime support to post-9/11 combat wounded, critically ill and catastrophically injured members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. Semper Fi Fund delivers the resources they need during recovery and transition back to their communities, working to ensure no one is left behind.
As huge supporters of our military and veterans, we feel that this is a great opportunity to give back to those who have dedicated themselves to the preservation of our freedom and safety and currently need our help.
If you wish to pass on the donation that is completely fine, but we encourage you to donate to this great cause. A tax deductible $100 - $500 donation would absolutely be incredible! As a plus, the Semper Fi Fund is 501(c)(3) Non Profit and all donations will go directly to them.
We currently have a goal of $3,000 for this event. Help us reach that goal and show the world the true colors of the Raptor Community.
Day 1 August 4th, 2018 @ 8:00AM
Starting Location: Black Mountain Coffee Shop 7211 E Ho Rd Suites 22 , Carefree, AZ 85377
Starting off on the "Racin' To The Basin" route after a group breakfast, we'll head towards Bloody Basin for some fast and smooth dirt! Once we make it to the highway, we'll have lunch at a 50's themed diner. We’ll then cross over the highway and continue North in the dirt towards Prescott. Once we arrive into Prescott, we’ll be staying at a unique and historic hotel in the heart of the historic downtown district.
Day 2 August 5th, 2018 @ 8:00AM
After grabbing breakfast in Prescott we’ll start the next day heading South towards Crown King. We'll take a break at the General Store and keep pushing East to avoid the "not so Raptor-friendly" trails and towards Rock Springs Cafe which we'll stop at for lunch. We'll shoot over the I-17 and take some back roads to the North entrance of Geiser Loop! This will be a great chance to test our trucks on the famous trophy truck testing loop!
End Location: Geiser Loop (South Point of Lake Pleasant)
All together this will be about 250 miles of laid back trails and beautiful scenery.
