Registration Open for the 2017 Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown and the TMC Meet Me Downtown Weekend!

Randy Accetta February 28, 2017

Yippee!  Click here to register online for the 2017 Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown.  Don't want to commit to all three events? Click here to register for the 2017 TMC Meet Me Downtown, including the Friday Night Festival of Miles!

This year mark's the 6th year since the loss of Gabe Zimmerman. The 2011 shooting of U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords and murder of 6 innocents shook our city to the core. As part of our ongoing recognition and celebration of those whom we lost, we invite you to join us in pursuit of health, community, and the joy that comes from being outside in this great region.  

Three unique Tucson events for one low price

Saturday night, May 27: TMC Meet Me Downtown 5k Night Run Run/Walk
Sunday morning, September 17: New Event: Inaugural TMC 10k, with companion 5k
Sunday morning, October 29: TMC Get Moving Tucson A-Mountain Half-Marathon Run and Tucson Lifestyle 5k Walk/Run

What You Get
All participants in the Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown will continue to receive the special "Run Tucson" Triple Crown shirt, a unique completion medallion, and entry into each of the three races of the series.

New Beneficiary
The 2017 Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown will raise funds for BEYOND-TUCSON, the Tucson-based organization "whose mission is to promote the use of good science and rational analysis to improve individual and community health."  
Please know that $10 of each GZTC registration will go directly to BEYOND -- plus each race will raise funds for other local organizations, including the Children's Museum, Educational Enrichment Foundation, Greater Tucson Leadership, Living Streets Alliance, Team Hoyt, Cox Charities, the Tucson Symphony, Southern Arizona Roadrunners, and others.

New Race

We are replacing the Saguaro Labor Day Run with a brand new event: the inaugural TMC Tucson 10k is scheduled for Sunday morning, September 17th.  
Staged at Pima Community College West, the TMC Tucson 10k will loop the beautiful cactus forest roads in the Tucson Mountains.  You'll still have hills, but we think this will be a fast and scenic 10k -- plus, we'll make sure to have a companion 5k walk/run and a kids dash so that all ages and abilities can participate.

Why the change?  Well, we have to put a hard cap on the Saguaro Labor Day Run this year, so to make it fair to everyone we have moved Saguaro out of the Triple Crown and created this new event.  

Virtual Triple Crown
Can't make the dates?  No worries -- you can sign up for the 2nd Annual Virtual Crown and participate even if you're not in town!!

The Southern Arizona Roadrunners is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting health and fitness in Tucson and Southern Arizona through running and walking.
