FitKidz Club Registration is Open

Feb 22, 2019

FitKidz Club 2019 is open for registration!


It will be in TWO locations this year! One at Reid Park and one at Rillito Regional Park (1st & River). Both will meet every Tuesday from April 2nd - April 30th 5pm-6pm.

The Fitkidz Running Club is FREE and will promote and highlight improved skills over a 5-week period, focusing on progress over performance and enjoyment over competition. The kids will start out running shorter intervals and grow the distance each week, culminating in a mile fun run. Each 60-minute session will start with a warm-up, followed by a running activity, a running game, and ending with a short nutrition or other educational activity. The program is for kids ages 5-12 (not yet in middle school). If this sounds just right for your little runner, join us for some running fun!


Fine Valentine Relay Wrap Up

Feb 19, 2019

Thank you all for celebrating our community, kindness and love with SAR at the 24th Annual Fine Valentine Relay! Once again about 700 of you registered for the event. We expect to be able to donate over $3000 to Ben's Bells as well as another $3000 to SAR's programs including the Children's Fitness Fund thanks to you and thanks to our wonderful sponsors. The costume game, PDA, Kind Cupids and speedy running were all impressive!  You can find results here.

Special shout out to Gentle Ben's and Main Gate Square that hosted us for the post race awards party. The mimosa and bloody mary bar, brunch buffet, and photo booth were all hopping.

Check out the Southern Arizona Roadrunners Facebook page for over 400 photos from Selena Valencia.

Need to pick up your award? Order a race shirt but couldn't make it to the race? You can pick those up at The Running Shop.

Last but not least, thank you to all our amazing volunteers! As we always say, events like these take a village and would be utter chaos without your help!

Race Report for TMC Sunrise at Old Tucson

Feb 19, 2019

Thanks to everyone who came out to the TMC Surise at Old Tucson Trail Run!  Here is the race report, including details on picking up awards at The Running Shop, leftover shirts & medals, and more.  Here's one of the nice notes we received:

Hi Randy,
This was my first race, what an experience! I run 6-8 miles per week so never thought I could do a formal race. 
Wow! It was amazing! The environment, the camaraderie, the beautiful families, friends, couples, etc... Thank you guys for making us rookies feel welcome and ecouraged to do better and more importantly to believe that we can run much more than we thought we could!
My plans have changed, now I want to prepare for the next race and then the next.
This event was truly life changing.
Next time, I’ll make sure to get my T-Shirt early (you guys ran out of Small Sizes)
Muchas Gracias,
