TMC Saguaro 2010 Updates: Training runs every Sunday and new 5k

Randy Accetta July 29, 2010

Early registration for both the 8-miler and 5k ends on August 5thOnline and mail-in registration options available.

Training runs on the Saguaro course start Sunday, August 1st at 6:00 am and go every Sunday through August.  The informal and free runs are led by long-time SAR member Bill Cuculic, though you can run or walk your own pace. Bring a few dollars for the park entry (or buy an annual park pass for $25 and receive $5 off your Saguaro race entry) and try to car-pool so that runners don’t overwhelm the parking spots.  Have fun and meet new friends as you prepare for this Tucson tradition!

The TMC Saguaro National Park Labor Day Run also announces a one-year experiment: the 2-mile fun run/walk has been changed to a 5k run/walk, complete with overall and age-group prizes.  If you’re not quite ready for the hilly 8-miler, come on out and do 3.1 miles—the out-and-back starts a few minutes before the 8-miler and will head counterclockwise, with the turn-around down by the picnic area.  The rolling hills and fine for strollers, kids, and runners/walkers of all abilities!
