Thank you for your interest in the 2017 Game Zimmerman Tripe Crown.  We have reached our cap for this event, so we can no longer accept registrations.

We will open registration for the 2018 Triple Crown in January 2018.

What is the Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown?
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.

2017 Pricing: $79
