Welcome to the New Year's Day HAIR OF THE DOG Run/Walk, benefiting the Humane Society of Southern Arizona. The HOTD is a New Year's Day destination, not to be missed. And for so many good reasons!
The HOTD strives to be the capstone of your winter holiday in Tucson, and a pre-eminent fitness event. Whether you’re pining for a PR or plan to stroll the course as a dog, a hare, Father Time, or Baby New Year, there’s something for everyone. Here’s what’s included in your event entry:
For an additional fee, anyone can purchase the Official Race Tee, featuring the adorable HOTD logo. This is a sized-to-order technical shirt, with no sponsor logos. But if you already have more race tees than your closet can hold, you can save money and pass on the tee.
Runners and walkers of all abilities are invited to participate in the HOTD. We think you will love our 8-kilometer (5 mile) course. And also the 1-Mile / Doggie Dash course, which will feature beautiful desert-scape and lovely views of the Catalina Mountains, as participants cruise a loop around Udall Park. The Start/Finish staging area is the Laszlo Veres Amphitheater in the lovely Udall Park. 8k participants traverse the Park before connecting with the brand new landscaped path along Sabino Canyon Road. Here you’ll find lots of wide-open space, views of the Santa Ritas to the south and awe-inspiring views of the Santa Catalinas to the north. At 0.8 miles the 8k course turns west onto the Loop Path along the Pantano River Wash. From there the route ... is a surprise!
The HOTD is locally produced by Run Tucson (RunTucson.net), the event production company for the largest run/walk events in Southern Arizona. We produce numerous events in partnership with the 501(c)3 Southern Arizona Roadrunners (azroadrunners.org/races/detail/mmd) and we are co-founders of Meet Me Concepts (meetmeconcepts.com), including the local Meet Me at Maynards and Meet Me Wednesdays.
To promote our mission of Making Tucson Better through Running, Run Tucson advocates for Health & Fitness, Enhancing Community Engagement, and Promoting the Local Economy. In addition, we make significant contributions to worthy charities, providing over $250,000 to local organizations over the years.
The HOTD will be held rain or shine. No refunds.
