A little information about the Pima Community College Track and Field/Cross Country Teams…
Over 75 student-athletes are on the roster for the 2015-16 Track and Field season. Both the Track & Field and Cross Country Teams have enjoyed success at the national level in recent years with an individual national champion coming from Pima in four of the last five years. Pima Cross Country or Track & Field teams have placed in the top 10 at the National Championships 9 times in the last 5 years! Our last national champion was Kaysee Pilgrim. She won the national title in the High Jump this year.
We appreciate your support and participation in the 2017 Sun Run 5k and 10k!
Kids' and Post-Race Activities
All this and a great breakfast! After the race, enjoy a warm pancake breakfast and coffee served by our very own Pima College Cross Country and Track and Field Teams. This is quickly becoming a popular addition to the Tucson running scene.
