Nov. 10 run benefits Apache Junction High School girls soccer teams

Join Apache Junction Parks and Recreation and Apache Junction High School athletics for a running/walking event Nov. 10.

The run will benefit the AJHS girls soccer teams and gives walkers and runners a choice of distances from approximately 2 miles to 4 miles 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. ┬áParticipants will receive a medal at the finish line,” according to a release.

The route will start and end in the parking lot of Superstition Shadows Aquatic Center, 1091 W. Southern Ave. in Apache Junction.

Check-in begins at 9 a.m. and the run/walk starts at 9:30 a.m. Team members and parents will be on-site volunteering and will be drumming up registrants for the event, according to the release.

The cost is $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.

Visit the registration page at or sign up the morning of the event. All children must have a parent fill out a registration form in order to participate, according to the release.
