Mark your calendars, then lace 'em up and join us for the 18th Annual TMC Meet Me Downtown 5k Run/Walk and Festival of Miles on Saturday night, June 1, 2024. You can also sign up here for the 2024 Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown, Tucson's popular 3-race series.
Enjoy a night on the town at Arizona's biggest running party in dynamic Downtown Tucson. Grab some friends and save some money-- teams of 5 or more receive $5 off per person!
This electrifying event has been the talk of T-town and the 520, with a bustling 5k route through the vibrant heart of Downtown Tucson. Whether you're rolling solo, hanging with friends, or making it a family night out, we've got you covered.
You can do the 5k Night Run/Walk or the Festival of Miles, including your choice of an Open Mile for all abilities, a Free High School Mile, or a Free FitKidz Mile for all 12U and their families.
Speedsters can chase after prize money and age-group awards, while the rest of us can soak up the good vibes with live music, children's activities, food trucks, and a refreshing beer garden.
