Proceeds from this event benefit Hope and a Future.
In 2004, Hope & A Future, an Arizona 501(c)(3) nonprofit Christian organization, was formed to continue affecting the lives of foster children who have grown beyond the age limits of other organizations. Not long after – in 2006 – they realized their goal of providing their first summer camp in Arizona designed for kids from twelve to fifteen. Since then, they’ve grown with every camp and with new programs that provide hope and a future to Arizona’s foster children.
Every foster child deserves hope and a bright future. Together, we can help them reach their potential and achieve their dreams.
More than 18,000 children live in the Arizona foster care system and your donations help to serve those children in need.
Hope & A Future has helped thousands of children since 2004, from camp and learning life skills all the way to graduating college.

Leashed pet friendly event
Due to the common start/finish line, there is no bag check for this event.
The course will take you through dedicated running trails (all asphalt and concrete) of the New River Trail System, starting and ending at Rio Vista Park in Peoria - meaning no need for transportation before or after the race just to get back to your car! Please note - this is an open use trail system and does not close for our event.
The Spooky Sprint will be an untimed half mile kids run. All kids who register will receive a trick or treat bag at check in and will be able to trick or treat along the course from our volunteers. Costumes are highly encouraged! All Spooky Sprint participants will receive a custom event finisher's medal and event dri-fit t-shirt.
