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 or get around the Saguaro loop, 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. In 2017, BEYOND received $7000 from your race registrations!

Virtual Registrants who have not yet received their TMC Meet Me Downtown shirt or medal:
Please take a moment and email us again, with some version of this note: "Hey, I never got my Run Tucson shirt or medal. My size is XYZ. My accurate current mailing address is THIS ADDRESS."

If you live in or near Tucson but have not yet received your TMC Meet Me Downtown shirt and medal:
Please go to The Running Shop at 3055 North Campbell and say something like, "Hey, I never got my Run Tucson shirt -- may I have the size that is the best fit for me?" Even if we no longer have the perfect size, The Running Shop staff will be nice to you . . .
We received a new shipment of TMC Meet Me Downtown medals, so the medallions are at The Running Shop

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 . . .
