Southern Arizona Roadrunners is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting health and fitness in Tucson and Southern Arizona through running and walking. Join today and get discounts to many local businesses, discounts to all SAR events and support the great work we do! JOIN TODAY!
Known as MMD (#meetmedowntown5k), the race has become a city-wide block party, featuring a free children’s race, children’s activities, a beer garden and food trucks, a beneficiary and vendor expo, rock n’ roll bands, and an awesome after-party at iconic Hotel Congress.
Join us at this iconic Tucson event—our paved 8 mile loop will challenge you as you race among the rolling hills of the Saguaro Cactus Forest in the foothills of the Rincon Mountains.
Come cruise the beautiful rolling hills in the Painted Desert area of the cactus-covered Tucson Mountains, with a rocket-ship finish to the shade-covered staging area nestled amongst the palm trees on the west side of Pima Community College.
The 7th Annual Sabino Canyon FitKidz One Mile Classic is the one, the only, the original! This is the event that started the FitKidz craze! Join 300 or so other kids in celebrating and promoting fitness and running in beautiful Sabino Canyon!
Here is a list of teams signed up for the TMC Meet Me Downtown 5k or the Festival of Miles. Remember, once a team has 5 or more members, everyone receives $5 off their registration price. The team with the most registrants wins $100 gift card to Hotel Congress for use at The Cup, The Tap Room, or Maynard's, while every team is entered in a raffle for $100 gift card to Hotel Congress. In the 5k, $250 in cash goes to the fastest male and female teams, following standard 5-person cross country scoring rules.

Wow! So many wows from the 39th Annual Dr. Gann’s Diet of Hope Cinco De Mayo Running Fiesta! Over 1000 people crossed the finish line including 10k runners and walkers, 5k runners and walkers, assisted wheelchair athletes, and FitKidz!
I have to start by saying none of this would be possible without volunteers. It takes 75-80 people to put this race on, from packet pickup to setting up cones at 3:30 in the morning. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!
The Cinco De Mayo 10k was the Road Runners Club of America State Championship. Overall winners are recognized on a national level. Female winners were: Lauren Reasoner (Overall), Tia Accetta (Masters), Sharon Silvas (Grand Masters), Mary Black (Super Grand Masters). Male winners were: Bjorn Wastvedt (Overall), Orlando Velazquez (Masters), Bob Jones (Grand Masters), and Richard Senti (Super Grand Masters). Mary Black set a state record for the 65-69 age group with a time of: 52:08
The 5k also had some speedy finishers. Thomas Franco was the overall male winner with a finish time of 20:25. Second and third were taken by David Jeck and Michael Durkin, respectively. Lisa Barriga lead the women with a finish time of 22:58, followed closely by Katie McNulty and Sharon Snyder. Kathy Wong set a state record for the female 80-99 age group with a finish time of 46:58.
Anyone that won an award, but did not get it at the race, can pick it up at Fleet Feet 7607 N Oracle Rd #121, Oro Valley 85704 until May 20th.
Thank you to the sponsors that help support race operations and provide food for the post race fiesta. We had great partners this year: Dr Gann’s Diet of Hope, Desert Diamond Casinos, SPARCC Sports Medicine, O’Reilly Auto Parts, Geico, Fleet Feet, Lennar, La Estrella Bakery, Eegee’s, El Saguarito Healthy Mexican, Tile Outlet, Tap & Bottle, and United Healthcare-Susan Perez.
Sponsors and race entry help Southern Arizona Roadrunners give back to the community. The beneficiaries for this race were:
1. $1000 Scholarship to Cholla High School Student, Andrew Beltran. Andrew runs for Cholla cross country and will be studying chemistry at Haveford College in Pennsylvania.
2. Cholla High School Mariachi Program to fund their performances, including transportation.
3. La Frontera’s La Paloma Family Services. Funds will help cover the cost of extra- curricular activities for children placed in foster care.
Next year will be the 40th year of Dr Gann’s Diet of Hope Cinco De Mayo Running Fiesta, so we’re super excited for even more greatness!More
