The One for Water 4-Miler is a fun, local race that offers something for everyone -- a fast course, desert scenery, fabulous prizes, swag, food, and a "tank chaser" to beat a running toilet. Whether you're an intense or laid-back runner, this chip-timed, 4-mile loop run promises a unique blend of the traditional race with some distinctive moments.
New for 2015! A 1-Mile Fun Run is being added to the morning's agenda. All participants will receive a t-shirt and commemorative medal.
This 4-mile event was created to raise awareness for fixing leaks and encouraging water efficiency in our homes, landscapes and businesses. Leaky "Loo" McFlapper, the event's larger-than-life running toilet mascot, is a 6' tall reminder that running toilets are only funny when they are mascots. Race organizers, sponsors and volunteers do take fixing leaks seriously and hope that you will join them at this truly one-of-a-kind event.
Following the race and awards ceremony, a Family Fun Festival with food, kid's activities, leak-fixing demos, music, and more will top off a memorable race day.
The Phoenix Suns' Gorilla is a fan of fixing leaks! View the 2014 video
Can a running toilet be funny? Yes, hilarious. View the 2014 video.
