Four Updates to TMC BE TUCSON on February 21

Feb 9, 2016

1) The mail-in form must be mailed by February 13, so be sure to pop it into the mail this week!

2) It turns out that this whole "BE FAST" idea is not so popular after all, so we're going to go back to what we did a few years ago, with a Men's Mile followed by a single women's-only 5k run and walk.  There is still open and incentive-based prize money, with prize money and age-group details on the race page, for those who care about that sort of thing.  (By the way, there are still about 43 free wine glasses available, if you care about that sort of thing . . . )

3) The course will be run in reverse this year, so get ready to go counter-clockwise! This route has more gradual downhill, so it should be faster if you care about that sort of thing . . .

4) Here's the updated race weekend schedule: 
Friday Night 
6:00 - 7:30: Ladies Night at The Running Shop
Sunday Morning
7:00-8:00 Registration at The Core, with photo booth, stretching activities, and more
8:00 Start of Men's Mile
8:30 Start of BE TUCSON Women's-Only 5k
9:30 Free Children's Dash Around the Circle (Note, this is a 100 yard dash for fun -- no t-shirts)
Ongoing: vendor expo and fun things to do
