September 17th Update: Click here for the most recent NEWS on the event, including packet pickup, race result submissions, and more.

Instead of cruising the rolling hills of the Painted Desert early on Sunday morning, runners and walkers can do their 5k or 10k wherever they'd like -- then simply submit your results here.  The final results will be posted on the azroadrunners.org TMC Tucson 10K race results page.

Packet pick-up is at The Running Shop, 3055 N Campbell Ave

Friday, September 18: 3:00-6:00 pm
Saturday, September 19: 10:00-1:00 pm.


Following social distancing guidelines, race shirts, souvenir numbers, and race medals will be set up outside of the Running Shop on Friday and Saturday. We ask that you wear a face covering and try to maintain a distance of 6 ft. between yourself and someone else when possible. Please send a friend if you are feeling ill. Shirts and medals will be available at The Running Shop after race weekend for those who can't make it on Friday or Saturday.  As of September 17th, we are in the process of mailing shirts and medals to the participants who live outside of the greater Tucson area.

If you're interesed in registering, we have about 10 slots available.

As we manage the difficulties of producing a running event in the midst of our national public health crisis, we'll find a creative way to keep us all motivated, healthy, and happy!  We'll use this race page, email, and social media channels to provide updated information as we learn more.  For questions, contact Randy at randy@runtucson.net.

Here's the artwork for the 2020 medal.  What do you think?

Beneficiaries

The 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 did you 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.

Community Partners

The race is produced by Randy and Tia Accetta of Run Tucson, with help from volunteers from SAR and the Workout Group.  We are grateful to our title sponsor, Tucson Medical Center, and our media sponsors: Tucson Morning Blend, Tucson Lifestyle Magazine, Cox Communications, Arizona Daily Star, and My92.9 radio station.

Sponsorship packages are available on request.
