Within the past two weeks, the Payson Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department has put on two wildly successful races in Payson — the Payson Area Trails System (PATS) “Circle the Peak” National Trails Race on June 6 and the 4th Annual Payson Sprint Triathlon on June 13. Both of these events not only provided a fun and enjoyable competition and atmosphere for participants, but also drew a high percentage of out-of-town visitors to the Rim Country.
The continued existence of these events would not be possible with current budget conditions without the involvement of many local volunteers. The Payson Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department would like to thank the organizations for providing volunteer support staff for these two events.

The town of Payson is becoming a hot-spot for these types of special events and we look forward to hosting more with our community’s support.
