SAR Frequently Asked Questions

I want to register for the Southern Arizona Roadrunners. How do I sign up?

Excellent—we’d love to have you join the club! Our registration page has all the information you need. If you’d rather, you can go straight to our on-line registration on

I’m visiting Tucson soon. Where are good places to run?

Check out our Places to Run page. We’ve listed a handful of hot spots around town with great running routes.

I’m planning to visit Tucson. Are there any races I can do while I’m in town?

Our race calender can be found on our main page. There are also links to other Tucson races on the main page. If you’re interested in other types of events, check out for a range of state-wide events.

I want to put on a race here in Tucson. Can you give me some advice? Can SAR help me market to the local running community?

Sure, just contact us. We have various ways to help, including our new “SAR Good Neighbor” program. You may want to take a look at our Advertise With SAR document, as well.

How do I run during the brutal Tucson summer?

See the first edition of the SAR Ask a Runner page for an in-depth discussion of running in the heat.

Do I have to be a member of SAR to volunteer at an event?

No! Friends and family of SAR members are strongly encouraged to volunteer. If you are new to the area or just visiting we encourage you to come down, meet some people and enjoy the race. Contact our volunteer coordinator Sheryl Felde for more information.

Do I have to volunteer at a race or are there other jobs I can do?

While race-day volunteers are the glue that holds events together, we also need help in other capacities. Volunteers run packet pick-up in the days preceding an event, can help with general office tasks, recruit sponsors and advertisers, write articles for the bi-monthly Roadrunner newsletter, lead group runs, or organize a social event. Let us know where your talents can be used to help the club.
