While the first Javelina Stampede in 2017 was only a short-track race, in 2018 a second day was added to include a 22-mile cross country event.  By combining the beautiful surroundings of the Emmanuel Pines Camp with the newly adopted and re-designed trails in The Prescott National Forest, I believe this will be a very fun and memorable race for everyone.  Year #3 2019. Course was 1-lap 22 miles in length, encompassing both the new Spence Basin Trails as well as many of the very popular Thumb Butte Trails. I hope to see you there!
