Cyclists and runners will get to test their skills March 10 at South Mountain Park/Preserve, 10919 S. Central Ave., while helping to support the Phoenix Parks Foundation. The Landis Cyclery South Mountain Bike and Run Classic are races set amidst the grandeur of the park’s Sonoran Desert setting. A family festival from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. will allow people of all ages to get into the act. People of all ages can join a family run ride at 2:30 p.m.

The event is a partnership between the Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department, White Mountain Road Club and Running Masters to benefit the Phoenix Parks Foundation with additional support from Gravity Riders of Arizona and the Phoenix Police Department.
