So Dark Sky Distance was created, based in the distance running hub of Flagstaff, Arizona. At 7,000 feet altitude with extensive trail networks in town, Flagstaff is an ideal training location and has been home to countless national champions, world champions, Olympic medalists in the middle and long distance track events and half-marathon and marathon distances over the years. The name “Dark Sky” pays homage to the city’s commitment to reducing light pollution and the preservation of the night sky. Flagstaff is considered a leader in outdoor lighting policy, having enacted the world’s first outdoor lighting ordinance in 1958, and is the first IDA International Dark Sky Community. To the team, the stars of the night sky symbolize their potential: consistent, limitless, and more than the sums of its parts.
