April 24th Update: We wish we could provide the in-person experience that we all love, but unfortunately the City of Tucson is not able to permit large gatherings or deploy the large amount of police and other resources needed for a Downtown event. Thus, we're going to make this a virtual event and we're working on a plan to create a fun-filled and exciting month-long experience while keeping the running population safe during this public health crisis.  We'll have more information over the coming weeks, but our plan is to offer these experiences:

  • Souvenir TMC Meet Me Downtown race shirt 
  • Weekly 5K training plans delivered to your email doorstep from Coach Tia
  • Hosted live Zoom talks with RRCA-certified coaches
  • Community-building activities, complete with raffle prizes for local small businesses
  • Social media fitness challenges, with raffle prizes 
  • Discounts to all teams of 5 or more . . . everyone saves five bucks!
  • All Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown registrants will also receive the GabeZ souvenir shirt and a special GabeZ medal

We're working on other race weekend experiences so be sure to Meet Me Virtually!

Please see the advice for runners posted by the RRCA in mid-March. 

Donations: All of our local organizations are feeling the pain of this public health crisis.  You can help by using the "Donate" button to provide funds to the charity of your choice.

  • TMC Marks Fund for Employee Assistance
  • Greater Tucson Leadership
  • Children's Museum, Tucson

For those interested in the Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown 3-race series, we're committed to providing $10 from every Triple Crown registration to the BEYOND-Tucson Foundation.
