October 22 Update  

We've reached the cap! Although we have reached our cap for both the TMC A-Mountain Half-Marathon and the Tucson Lifestyle 5k, you can still sign up for the race, but we cannot promise that you will receive the 2018 finisher's medallion or the 2018 race t-shirt.  We do not plan on ordering any additional souvenir items, but if you wish to run or walk the races and hang out at the finish line concert, you still can - but please note that we may not have enough finisher's 2018 finisher's medals or race shirts. 

Please note: we have plenty of room in the free Cox Charities Family Mile and SAR FitKidz Mile.  All participants in the mile are free -- and all kids under 12 receive the SAR goodies!

TMC Get Moving Tucson Half-Marathon is Tucson's most popular urban half-marathon event day, with the TMC Half-Marathon, the Tucson Lifestyle 5k Run/Walk, and the Cox Charities Free FitKidz Mile for children 12-and-under.  The first 1500 registrants are guaranteed a t-shirt and souvenir finisher's medallion. The TMC Half-Marathon is part of SAR's Running Shop Grand Prix, with prize money and cool age group awards. Produced by Run Tucson in partnership with the Southern Arizona Roadrunners -- click here for the SAR race website and all the details.
