Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown Update

Randy Accetta September 11, 2019


Hello to everyone who has signed up for the 2019 Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown. We are gearing up for this weekend's TMC Tucson 10k and 5k, so here are some details about the GZTC and the TMC Tucson 10k:  

Donations:  We count 841 registrants in the Triple Crown, so we will be providing $10 per registrant to the BEYOND-Tucson Foundation, for a total of about $8410.  On top of that, about 123 of you have donated to the BEYOND Foundation for a total donation amount of about $2200, which brings the grand total raised for BEYOND to over $10,600!!   A list of donor acknowledgements is farther below.  Thank you for all of your support for Gabe, the Zimmerman family, BEYOND and our great Tucson community . . .


Race Day: If you are doing TMC Tucson 10k event in person: Each TMC Tucson 10k or 5k finisher will receive the TMC Tucson 10k race medal.  You do not have to go to a tent and pick anything up -- simply finish the race and get your medallion!  For those who signed up after the TMC Meet Me Downtown run, we will have extra Run Tucson GabeZ shirts at the "Run Tucson" tent, so you can swing by the tent if you did not get your green shirt or Meet Me Downtown medal.  We cannot promise the perfect shirt size.


Virtual Local Crown: If you have to miss this race and will do it as part of the Virtual Triple Crown, please do this: run 6.2 miles or 3.1 miles sometime this week.  Then post a photo of your run on social media -- tag @RUNTUCSON and @RunSAR with #gabezimmermantriplecrown. If you need to pick up your shirts and medals after the race, please visit The Running Shop at 3055 North Campbell starting on September 19th. They have a list of Triple Crown registrants, but it would be most helpful if you were prepared -- explain to them that you signed up for the Triple Crown but have done the race virtually. 


Please note that we will NOT have every shirt size available after the race -- so please be kind and gracious with them as they help you get the best shirt for you, even if it is not the perfect shirt for you.
We are grateful to Sharon Bart and The Running Shop staff for providing so much support for our races.


Out of Town Crown: we still have the list of out-of-town virtual participants, so we'll mail shirts and medals to you shortly.


We're trying to keep up with you, so please be patient with us and email us again if you have not received stuff in the mail. 



This race is the second leg of the Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown and will benefit both the BEYOND-TUCSON Foundation and the Southern Arizona Roadrunners.  You know about SAR, but here's what you might not know about BEYOND:
Founded in reaction to the mass shooting of January 11, 2011, BEYOND's "mission is to promote the use of good science and rational analysis to improve individual and community health." 
BEYOND is unique Rx health formula emphasizing four key pillars that supports optimum physical and mental health:
EXPLORE:  Getting outdoors and spending time in nature;
MOVE:  Engaging in regular physical activity;
NOURISH:  Eating healthy foods; and
CONNECT:  Connecting with one another as a community.
These four key pillars support the basis of BEYOND's mission. Along with its partners, BEYOND provides year-round opportunities for the public to participate in a series of healthy activities and to learn more about the scientific research that shows why these four pillars are critical for optimal physical and mental health.
