“I’m So Excited”

No Mo FOMO! Don’t miss out on the ultra party of the year at the Javelina Jundred! The inaugural Jackass Night Trail is your ticket to the grooviest desert disco of your dreams! Tell your friends, your family, your crew, and your curious neighbors about the biggest most exclusive Jalloween Party Arizona has to offer. The only way to get there is on foot via the Javelina Jundred.  Join Jackass Justin “The Lip” Lutick, your disco King, and dance into the night.

“That’s the Way” (I like it)!

Choose your distance: 31 Km or 62 Km

31 Km: Quench your curiosity by traveling one loop on the Javelina Jundred course. Spend as much or as little time at each unique aid station and enjoy the party at Jackass as long as you can handle.

62 Km: One loop not enough? Of course not. Ultra runners: challenge your endurance and take ultra to a new level; ultra run, ultra party! “Washing machine” style applies: your second loop goes the other direction!
