steve outridge May 3, 2016

It was a perfect day for racing at Dr. Gann’s Diet of Hope Cinco de Mayo Fitness Fiesta!  Over 1000 participants and spectators came together to run or walk the  5K, 10K and Fitkidz 1 mile in the hills of Starr Pass.   The weather was perfect, the burritos were tasty, and the mariachis were a hit. What more could you ask for?

After the popular sombrero kids race, Dr. Gann kicked off the awards ceremony.  In the 5K, on the women’s side first place went to Jan Smith (22:45), on the men’s side Zach Westman (17:38).  Top place masters winners were Catherine Horness (22:33) and James Webster (19:37).  The 10K overall winners were Lauren Reasoner (40:28) and on the men’s side, Anthony Franciso (34:20).  Masters winners were Stephanie Wenneborg (42:04) and Dave Dixon (38:25).  A huge congrats to them powering through this challenging course!  In the new team competition, it was a close battle but in the end team Fleet Feet came out on top with the most participants, winning themselves a keg from Borderlands Brewery.   

In it’s 36th year, this race has become a Tucson tradition.  Thank you to the 70+ volunteers that make this event possible and to all of our sponsors for their support:  Dr. Gann’s Diet of Hope, Fleet Feet, Tile Outlet, Dr. James Evans and Dr. Basel Skeif at Tucson Heart Group, Mc Kesson Medical supply, The Reliance Group, Vitamin Shoppe, El Saguarito, Albertsons, Borderlands Brewery, Starbucks, Culligan and La Estrella Bakery.
