Lace 'em up and join us at Tucson's premier half-marathon charity event. The multiple TMC A-Mountain events are designed for all ages and all bodies, runners, walkers, joggers, chair athletes, young and old -- everyone is welcome! You also have the opportunity to support a host of local Tucson non-profits and the vital services they provide to our local community.


We're coming back to the A . . .

A-Mountain that is.  We're planning on staging the 2024 edition once again at the super-cool Mercado San Agustin Annex, a perfect post-run venue, with music, food and more.
Thanks to TMC and Rio Nuevo for helping fund this classic Tucson adventure!  We've been running our entire lives so we know that runners and walkers come in all shapes, all sizes, all bodies.  
This is a beautiful sport and we're super-psyched to have everyone join us! Thanks to SarahK for the recent email that closed with this sentence: Thank you for creating such a fun community that welcomes even us slow runners ;). 
Three Distances: whatever your fitness, whatever your goals, we've got you covered!

* TMC A-Mountain Half Marathon.  We've crafted a beautiful 13.1 mile course that loops up and down A-Mountain and does an out-and-back on the speedy Santa Cruz Riverpath.  The start and finish lines will most likely be on Cushing Street, at the Mercado Annex.

* TMC A-Mountain Four-Mile Run/Walk.  Instead of a 5k this year, we think it would be fun to do a 4-miler up and down A-Mountain.  Walk or run or roll: this scenic route is designed for walkers, runners, and chair athletes of all ages and abilities!

* Cox Free Family Mile and SAR Free FitKidz. Children under 12 will be registered in the SAR FitKidz program with all the classic SAR FitKidz goodies.  12 and over? Come out and join us for an easy mile jaunt.
