Work up an unforgettable Thanksgiving appetite with a European-style 5K around Reid Park. Separate men’s and women’s events create a fun opportunity to cheer on friends and family as they hurdle hay bales and water jumps. A team division is available. Great prizes include “turkeys” and pumpkin pies!
We’ve put together a super-cool and speedy course that starts in front of the Kino Veteran’s Memorial Stadium and ends on the centerfield of the stadium. Beautiful views, unique and fast course—great for personal bests and awesome for havin’ fun! Join us for a fun race and a totally awesome Fitness Expo, sponsored by our friends at Tucson Medical Center.

Results, Awards, & Schwag
Roadrunner Race Timing posted race results on the www.azroadrunners.org front page on noon of race day, so check ‘em out if you want to see where everyone finished. To fix something, please email the timer or the race director. At this point, post-race shirts and medals are first-come, first-served. All left-over items will be donated to charity at the end of November.
Age Groups: Thanks to the Running Shop for providing gift certificates plus the commemorative coffee mug. In the TMC A-Mountain Half-Marathon, top three in 5-year age groups in both races won awards (U-20 through 80+), while first place in five-year age groups won awards in the Tucson Lifestyle 5k. If you think you won an award, please visit the Running Shop at 3055 North Campbell Avenue. They will hold awards until the end of November, 2018.
Finisher Medals: The commemorative finisher medallions are only for finishers, but if you finished the race and did not pick up your medal, please visit The Running Shop to snag your medal.
Finisher Medals & Shirts for Late Registrants: We were worried about running out, but we have additional items available to late registrants who finished. Again, please visit The Running Shop to get a shirt and a medal.
Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown: We have mailed via USPS shirts and medals to those Virtual registrants who live outside the Tucson region. Those of you in the Tucson area who have not picked up your items, please visit the Running Shop to get your shirt and race medal by November 15th.
At this point, post-race shirts and medals are first-come, first-served. All left-over items will be donated to charity at the end of November.
