June 2 Updates: 

Results and Awards for 2024 TMC Meet Me Downtown 5k and Festival of Miles

Check here for race results -- you can find updated results for the Open Mile, the High School Mile, the FitKidz Mile, and the TMC 5k. Results links are to overall and age group. In the TMC 5k, the top three male and female in 5 year age groups 14-and-under through 80+ earn gift cards from The Running Shop. If you earned an age-group award, you can pick it up at The Running Shop (3055 North Campbell Ave) through the end of June.

Souvenir Pickup Through June 30th at The Running Shop

If you have not yet picked up your race goodies, all participants can pick up their souvenirs at The Running Shop, 3055 North Campbell from June 3 - June 30.  The TMC Meet Me Downtown 5k participants can pick up the blue race shirt. Triple Crown participants can get the blue shirt, the pink Gabe Zimmerman shirt, and the first GZTC medal. There are no shirts for milers.

At this writing, you can choose a technical shirt or cotton shirt, with first-come, first-served in terms of size, style, and texture. Special thanks to the Running Shop for all the help with post-race souvenirs. After the pickup deadline of July 1, 2024, we will donate all leftover race shirts.


Enjoy the race photos here. Thanks to superb running photographer, UA student John Harris.  Participants can also upload their own race photos.

Nice Words: 

I wanted to tell you what a fantastic job you did with this event.  I've run it in previous years when I was a runner and did complete the Triple Crown the first year it was implemented.  The whole atmosphere and ambiance even though yes it was hotter than hell was fun and positive  This year I walked it with my coworkers from the NICU at TMC.  We walk it to commemorate Dr. Elliot who was very dear to us.  Thank you for all the hard work you do for the community-it is certainly appreciated.  Looking forward to next year. Best, N.C.
