  • Cox Charities
  • Southern Arizona Roadrunners, and others.

The three-race series commemorates Gabe Zimmerman, a Tucson native who lost his life in the January 2011 shooting here in Tucson. As we all know, running shows us the power within ourselves. If we can walk or run three miles in a hot summer night, the ups and downs of daily life are certainly manageable.  If we can climb A-Mountain, we can rise to our other challenges.  Our goal is to celebrate Gabe and motivate the community to aspire to individual and collective greatness – to work alone and work with others towards those goals we find valuable.  To celebrate living, community, and good will.  To live with love, to live with passion to chase dreams. 

The BEYOND Foundation is our GZTC beneficiary, providing $10 of every race entry to the Foundation established in honor of the victims of the 2011 murders.  Thanks to the running community, BEYOND has received over $30,000 that has been used on health and wellness programming here in Southern Arizona.

Questions? See the FAQ on the menu bar.

In-Town Crown: If you live in the Tucson area but have to miss a race, simply run or walk the race distance at some point, then post a photo of your run on social media -- tag @RUNTUCSON and @RunSAR - or you can email us a photo if you don't have Instagram or Facebook. Then visit The Running Shop at 3055 North Campbell Avenue during their regular business hours to pick up your race shirt and GZTC souvenir.  All souvenirs must be picked up within 30 days of the event; after 30 days, they will be donated to charity.

Out-of-Town Crown: If you don't live in Tucson but still want to participate, we've got you covered!  Run or walk, then post a photo of your run on social media -- tag @RUNTUCSON and @RunSAR - or you can email us a photo if you don't have Instagram or Facebook. We'll mail the race materials directly to you!

Thank you: We lean heavily on Sharon Bart, the owner of The Running Shop, and Lucas, Geoff and the whole gang down there. Not only do they provide gift certificates as part of age-group awards, but they've become the brick-and-mortar home for our shirts and medals. Please spend millions of dollars on shoes and shorts and gear from them . . .
