12th Annual TMC Get Moving Tucson in the books

The 12th iteration of the TMC Get Moving Tucson saw over 1700 registered runners and walkers compete in three different events on Halloween weekend while helping raise thousands of dollars for Tucson non-profits.

Produced by Run Tucson and the Southern Arizona Roadrunners, the TMC Get Moving Tucson events included the A-mountain-less TMC Half-Marathon and the Tucson Lifestyle 5k.   

Cox Charities sponsored the free family mile, including the Cox Costume mile and SAR’s FitKidz mile for children under 12.

Perhaps it was the possibility of prize money or perhaps a speedy time on the flatter course, but the overall winners cruised to easy victories.

In the men’s race, Tucson-area transplant Harry Mulenga completed his first half-marathon in the outstanding time of 1:08:57.  Heeding conventional half-marathon advice, Mulenga ran a negative split race, holding back the first few miles then dropping down to 5-minutes-per-mile pace in the middle sections to leave the field far behind.  Second place went to David Fernandez and third went to James Haycraft.

In the women’s race, 2:41 marathoner Autumn Ray also rolled to an easy victory, clocking 1:20:21, also the 2nd-fastest time in the race.  Showing to be in good form, Ray ran the race to tune up for a November marathon effort.  On the other side of the spectrum, the race for 2nd and 3rd was an intense battle between Tucson runners who have been racing a lot lately.  Second place went to Jessica, who ran 2:57 earlier this month at Chicago, while steps behind in third was Lauren Reasoner, who ran 2:51 in Utah a few weeks ago.  Lauren may have been a bit tired, as she was the first place woman in the Boneyard 10k the day before . . .

We'll check in with more details later, but online reviews of the new course seem favorable.  Special thanks to the volunteers and sponsors and family & friends for all the effort at putting on Tucson's only urban half-marathon!

Updated TMC Half-Marathon Route Descriptions, with photos, maps, and storytelling

Oct 26, 2017

Randy here, with another note about the race courses this weekend.  

At the risk of giving too much information, I want to share with you that I’ve had a hard time sleeping the past couple of nights.  Race week is often stressful for us, but this week has been especially hard – last night I tossed and turned all night worried about the course.  So I thought I’d write up another race route description.  As usual, it’s long – but I want to make sure everyone gets a chance to understand the various aspects of the route so that you don’t get lost and you know what you’re getting into!  Way below is the staging area map plus two full course maps, including the official USATF certification maps to give a sense of exact mile markers.

Advice on running the 2017 TMC Get Moving Tucson Half-Marathon

Miles 1-3 Because we had to remove A-Mountain this year, we have had to re-measure the course for USATF certification (thanks to Lucas Tyler and Michelle Hawk for putting that together!!).  Thus, we were able got rid of the opening lap around the Downtown library and have an easier Half-Marathon start. 

This year, you’ll start at the SAR inflatable arch that marks the start/finish line, facing south on the crosswalk between the Downtown Library and the Old Courthouse.  At the start, you will take a quick left and head east on Pennington to Sixth Avenue, turn left and cross to the east side of Sixth Avenue.

You get a quick downhill drop under the rail tracks via the Sixth Avenue Underpass. Thanks to the combined efforts of XO Coffee and the Tucson Symphony, you should be motivated by some cool Halloween-themed classical music just past the rail underpass.

Take Sixth Avenue north all the way up to Second Street, turn right on Second Street and head towards the University of Arizona for a half-mile or so, then turn left on First Avenue and left again on First Street.  

This section should be fun – plenty of folks to run with, an easy uphill through the first mile, then mostly flat for a mile, then a very nice downhill all the way through the Sixth Avenue Underpass.  

Miles 2.9 or so You will cruise through the Pennington canyon, then turn onto Church.  You will stay on the outside lane as you turn from Pennington and you will cross the start/finish line mat underneath the SAR arch, heading north on Church. Our timer will include this split for you in your results.

Miles 2.9 - 3.9 From the start/finish at the Court House/Jacome Plaza, you’ll go north on Church to Sixth Street, then turn left on Sixth.  This stretch to I-10 is all a gentle downhill down towards the Santa Cruz.  Take advantage of this slight drop.  After you go under I-10 and as you approach the Santa Cruz River, you’ll want to hop onto the sidewalk that crosses the river so that you can easily take the left turn onto the Riverpath.  Again, in terms of racing, you may want to be patient on this stretch.

Miles 4-8 Once you turn south onto the Riverpath, you will head south for a bit more than 4 miles to the turn-around.  Please stay on the RIGHT SIDE of the path the whole way down.

NOTE #1:  THE LOOP The Riverpath is technically open to others – we’ve been posting signs and other social media notes to indicate that we’re running the race, but you may see walkers and others on the path.  Please stay to the RIGHT as you head south and please stay to the RIGHT as you head north after the turnaround!

NOTE #2: BATHROOMS We cannot put vehicles on the route, so we will rely on the public restroom at the River Park/Cottonwood park near mile 7 and 9.  This is about 30 yards off the course.  We will have a water stop and the Widow’s Hill Band at this location, so it’ll be easy to hop off the course and use the toilet if you need to.

NOTE #3: MUSIC  We’ve set up three bands for you on the Riverpath.

Southern Comfort Band will be with the water station near the 4 and 12 mile mark

Michael P will be near the 6 & 8 mile marks

Widow's Hill will be near the water station and bathrooms at the 7 and 9 mile marks

Thanks to the bands for waking up so early to play for you – and to Linda Whelan for coordinating this part of the race!

NOTE #4: Water Stops The Pima Community College Cross Country team is providing support at two water stops on the route.  Each stop should be in the middle of the Riverpath, so that you can get water on the way out and the way back.  One water stop is at about 4.5 and 11.5 miles; the other water stop is at about 7 and 9, near the bathrooms at the River Park/Cottonwood park.  Both Water Stops will have bands playing music, so these should be rockin’ spaces for you.

The 4+ mile section out-and-back on the Riverpath is kind of cool – it is mostly flat, but there are a number of dips that will break up the monotony.   You will dip down and up at Congress, at the Cushing street bridge, at the 5 and 11 mile mark, as you go under Starr Pass and Silverlake, as you go through a mesquite forest just north of Ajo, then again at Ajo.  Thus, I could about 7 slight dips and rises heading south and 7 again heading north.  Personally, I love this sort of thing when racing – a bit of change for my muscles and my mind.

Tia has done some workouts on this path lately, while I’ve ridden my bike (nursing a disaster of a knee injury – arrgh!!).  Here are some mediocre photos to give you a sense of the route.

Mile 8 or so and Turn-Around Once you go under the Ajo Overpass, you will come to the turn-around.  It will be marked by a big ol’ red inflatable arch, provided by Greg Wenneborg’s timing company, Roadrunner Timing.  Go through the arch and turnaround at the cones.  This will ensure that you step on the timing mat both times as you do the turn-around.  If you do not receive these timing splits, you will be disqualified from the race results, so be sure to do the turn around.

Turn-Around to Mile 12+ From the turn-around, you’ll head north on the bike path all the way until St. Mary’s again. Again, stay on the right side of the bike path the whole way. You should be feeling good along the River Path, so this is a nice place to step up the pace a bit.  There are some shady stretches and you’re getting closer to home on this primarily flat stretch.

 

Mile 12 - 13.1 Exiting the bike path onto St. Mary’s is a bit tricky. As you come up the hill off the bike path approaching St. Mary’s, you can either hug the pathway to the right and stay on the narrow sidewalk heading east across the Santa Cruz or you can jump down from the curb to the main roadway. If I were racing it, I would probably hop the curb, but it’s a bit high, perhaps as many as 10”, so be careful here.  As you head under the I-10, you’re about 2/3 of mile from the finish line, so it’s time to put the pedal to the metal!!  You finish with a long straight-away up Church Street.  Save some for the final kick!

Announcement on Change to Flat Course for TMC Get Moving Tucson Half-Marathon

Sep 25, 2017

Click here for recent emailed announcement about the course change for the TMC Get Moving Tucson Half-Marathon.  Sign up online here if you want to do the new, flat course!

Read on for unformatted information . . . 

Unfortunately, we have had to make some major route changes to the October 29th TMC Get Moving Tucson A-Mountain Half-Marathon and we've been struggling with how to make the announcement.
Fortunately, we have small children who have reminded us of this Fortunately/Unfortunately format.

So let's try this:
Unfortunately, the City of Tucson has said that we cannot run the race on A-Mountain this year, due to road problems on A-Mountain caused by summer storms.
Fortunately, we've worked with Pima County to extend the course along the Loop on the Santa Cruz Riverpath.
Unfortunately, you won't have the beautiful views from the top of A-Mountain.
Fortunately, you won't bust a lung on the way up and bash your quads on the way down.  The new course makes for a flat and fast race, with plenty of opportunity to crush a time and set a personal best!
Unfortunately, it may still be a bit hot on race day.
Fortunately, we have a beer garden this year!!  You can snag a free cold one after the race, courtesy of AmstelXLight who is giving free beer samples to all race registrants 21-and-over.
Unfortunately, you cannot have the free beer if you are a child running the Cox Charities FitKidz Mile, free for children under 12.
Fortunately, you can have the free beer and get the race medallion if you walk or run the Tucson Lifestyle 5k Walk/Run.
Even more fortunately, you can sign up here and save money before the price increase at the end of the month!

VOLUNTEERS
Special thanks to the more than 200 volunteers who helped make this weekend a success. Below is a list of as many as we can remember, but we owe a big shout-out to the Southern Arizona Roadrunners Board members and club members who helped out, as well as the gang from the Workout Group that did so much heavy lifting on both days.  Special thanks to the TMC crew, including the 50 sorority sisters who helped with Girls on the Run on Sunday!
Steve and Sheryl Felde, Cindy Schnell, Ed and Judie Shyman, Sandra Heater, Merry Dearmon, Devi and Steve Moore, Robin Gerard, Marti Ackermann, Connie Lopez, Austin Grover, Noemi Mills, Jeri Baker, Steve Sheldon and daughter I think, Mulcogi Seng, Dave Odom, Dennis Richards and brother, Joe Faulk, Andrew Peck, Gina Nelson, Maureen Cunningham, Michele Hawk, Doreen Davis, Joe Plassman, Tim Bentley, Gary Giese, Nancy Fuller, Monica Bermudez, and a lot of others who I hope don't hate me for not mentioning . . .
 
TIMING 
If you have any questions about your official time, please email our race timerhere with as much detail as will help him solve your issue. A note on the timing mats: Please note that in the TMC A-Mountain Half-Marathon, timing mats were placed at the 5k mark, the 7.9 mile mark just before the A on A-Mountain, and at the turn-around point exactly 37 yards after the 10-mile mark.  Although they might appear to be random distances, we decided to put these mid-race timing splits to ensure race integrity. Indeed, we thought it was cool that there were exactly 6.2 miles from the 7.9 mile mark to the finish so that you could figure out your 10k split from the top of A-Mountain.

The TMC Half-Marathon was the Road Runner's Club of America Arizona State Championship.  Congratulations to Andrew Lemoncello for being the Open Champ, Ramon Billy for being Master's Champ, Eric Sanders for winning the Grand Masters, and Benito Gonzalez for winning Super Grand Masters.

On the women's side, congratulations to Lauren Reasoner for being the Open State Champ, to Amber Price for winning the Master's Championship, Janet Holland for taking the Grand Masters and Mary Black for winning the Super Grand Masters.

Congratulations to the winners of the Tucson Lifestyle 5k, Ochor Odol in 17:36 and Tia Accetta in 20:04.

Congratulations to all the participants in the TMC Girls on the Run of Tucson, presented by UnitedHealthcare -- it was great to have all of the young girls, their Run Buddies, family, and coaches on hand.

Congratulations to the participants in the Cox Charities FitKidz Mile for cruising the speedy mile and to Diane Manzini, Steve Outridge and the host of volunteers who made it possible.

Special thanks to the more than 200 volunteers who helped make this weekend a success. We'll be back with a big list of as many names as possible, but a quick shout-out to the Southern Arizona Roadrunners Board members and club members who helped out, as well as the gang from the Workout Group that did so much heavy lifting on both days.  Special thanks to the TMC crew, including the 50 sorority sisters who helped with Girls on the Run on Sunday!

A note on the timing mats: Please note that in the TMC A-Mountain Half-Marathon, timing mats were placed at the 5k mark, the 7.9 mile mark just before the A on A-Mountain, and at the turn-around point exactly 37 yards after the 10-mile mark.  Although they might appear to be random distances, we decided to put these mid-race timing splits to ensure race integrity. Indeed, we thought it was cool that there were exactly 6.2 miles from the 7.9 mile mark to the finish so that you could figure out your 10k split from the top of A-Mountain.

The prize money and awards for both the Tucson Lifestyle 5k and the TMC A-Mountain Half Marathon (the RRCA State Championship) details are here:

Please note that overall and masters winners will be determined by "gun" time at the starting line while age group winners will be based on chip time.

• $100 to first overall male and $100 to first overall female; $50 to top overall Master's (Over-40) male and female

• $200 to the top 5 males who break 1:11 and to the top 5 females who break 1:26

• $500 for course records.  Current course records are Scott Smith’s 1:06:23 (2012) and Jennifer Bergman's 1:19:44 (2015)

• $50 to first male and female member of the Southern Arizona Roadrunners

• Preem award of $100 to first male and female runner to the “A” on Sentinel Peak 

NOTES:

**A-Mountain preem prize money is only given if the A-Mountain leader finishes the complete half-marathon in under 1:30 minutes for the man and 1:40 minutes for the woman

++ Runners who break the course record will receive $500, but not the additional $200


To Clarify: Awards are based on "gun" starting time for overall and masters, and chip time for age group.

My wife says this is too complicated, but we are trying to reward performance and local running.  So, as an example, if a man wins the race overall in 1:11:01 but is second to the "A" and not a SAR member he will get only $100.  If the winning man or woman is first to break the course record, is first to the "A", and is also a member of the Southern Arizona Roadrunners, he or she will win $750.  When in doubt, join SAR!

ADDITIONAL HALLOWEEN WEEKEND DETAILS
 Parking 
There is plenty of street parking in Downtown Tucson.  See maps by our friends at the Downtown Tucson Partnership.  Please note that the Joel D. Valdez Library parking lot will most likely be off-limits because Alameda will be closed to traffic on race morning.  Please do not bring pets to the event - and do not leave them in your car!!       
 
Festivities
Tucson Medical Center will host a sponsor tent with all sorts of giveaways.  
 
UnitedHealthcare and The Running Shop will host sponsor tents, as does the Vitamin Shoppe.
 
2-EE The Clown will be foolin' around with balloons and face-painting, while Cox Charities will host a jumping castle for the kiddos. 
 
The Reid Park Zoo will have a beneficiary table, with zoo information and other items.  Keep an eye out for a big ol' penguin. Hmm, I wonder who can win the Cox Charities one mile: Cox's Digi or the Zoo's big penguin?
 
Race beneficiary Team Hoyt will provide free coffee each morning.
 
Thanks to Muscle Milk, we will have awesome cold protein recovery drinks available to all finishers at the big Muscle Milk recovery tent, with foam rollers and other items.
Downtown restaurant Veg in a Box is giving 15% off to all runners all weekend!  Just bring your number!
Food Trucks: bring some bucks because as of now, the 2-day lineup includes Waffleicious, PREST, Gigi's Mexian Food, Nhu Lan Vietnamese Food, and free Don Franciscan Coffee courtesy of Team Hoy
 
Some of the race director's University of Arizona students at the McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship will be on hand to talk about their new business ventures.  A few of the student teams are seeking feedback from runners and walkers on their venture ideas, so please stop by and talk with them!

Photos:  SAR friend Kerry Whelan, aka, Goatagrapher, will be on hand snapping race photos.  Check out his facebook page: facebook.com/goatographer.
 
Oro Valley Photography will have three photo sites:

Finish Line Photos for both the 5k and the Half-Marathon
A-Mountain Photos for the Half-Marathoners

 
Music on the Half-Marathon Course: We're still updating the details, but for now here's the plan:
Main Stage: Bold as Love
4mile & 12 mile:  Mary and the Flathead Band
A-Mountain: Chuckwalla 
Please share your photos with us @RunSAR and @RunTucson!
 
Finisher Medals: All finishers in the 5k and half-marathon will receive a commemorative medallion at the finish line. 
 
Technical Shirts:  The giveaway shirt is a black long-sleeve technical shirt in both men's and women's sizing.  We cannot guarantee sizing, especially late in the packet pick-up process.  On race day, additional shirts from recent races will be available for purchase at a ridiculously low price - perfect for that early holiday shopping you need to do for out-of-town folks!
Bathrooms: There will be plenty of port-o-lets on the west wall of the downtown library, plus a hand sanitizing station.  There will also be a port-o-let on the half-marathon course, down by the 9.5 mile mark, near the big medical and water station.  We are very thankful for Waste Management's sponsorship of our events.
 
 
GABE ZIMMERMAN TRIPLE CROWN 
There are over 800 registrants in the 2016 Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown, raising over $8,000 for Child and Family Resources.  We will give a check to Eric Schindler of Child and Family Resources on Saturday.
 
Both the Saturday 5k and the Sunday half-marathon count towards the Triple Crown - simply take your finisher's medallion and attach it to your Cactus Medal!
YES, we will have Triple Crown materials available on race day.  If you never received your Run Tucson Triple Crown shirt, we will have extra shirts on hand.  If you did not receive your finisher's medal at Saguaro or your Saguaro shirt, we will have extra items on site.  We have a checklist of names from those who signed up for their shirts.  Please bring your registration information if you think you will need help. 
 
TIMING
Timing: Please put your bib number on the front of your shirt using the pins provided at registration.  Greg Wenneborg is our official timer, and he will time the race with the IPICO system.
NOTE: Following USATF standards, official results, all cash prize money, and all age-group awards will be by "gun time."   
NOTE: All late starters will receive the gun time as their official starting time.     
 
KEY THINGS TO KNOW 
Volunteers: Special thanks to all of our friends from the SAR Board of Directors; SAR volunteers; members of The Workout Group; the UA's Wildcat Running Club; the cross country teams from Sahuaro and St. Augustine High School; Sam Hughes Huskies Cross Country team from Sam Hughes Elementary School; and youth from VisionQuest.  We can always use more folks out on the course cheering for you and making sure you go in the right direction, so please send any volunteers our way!
 
Spectators: The course is open to all spectators.  We ask that spectators follow traffic laws and be careful if on bicycles (for instance, no cars on the closed roads, including A-Mountain), but we'd love to see all your friends and families out on the course cheering for you! 
 
Headphones: Please do not wear headphones.  It is a safety hazard and a potential disruption to those near you.  We have music on the course and you can always chat with your running neighbor. 
 
Weather: Race weekend is supposed to be clear with start-time temperature of 65 and 78 by 10:00 am.  Wear a hat and sunscreen!
 
Certification: Thanks to course measurer Dave Hill, the half-marathon is a certified distance, with 2015 USATF sanction number 14-48-547.  The 5k is accurate, but not certified.
 
Bag Check: There is no public bag check, per TPD request.  Please do not leave your bags at the start/finish area.  There is plenty of nearby parking, so please keep your race bags at your vehicles and not laying around the race site. Tucson Police Department and Pima County Sheriff reserve the right to remove all unaccompanied bags.
 
Race Starting Line: As often the case with races put on Downtown, we have a small space to work with.  All 5k and half-marathoners will start facing west on Pennington at Stone, right by the big green shamrock.  The first 1/4 mile is a counter-clockwise loop around the Downtown library, then everyone will head east on Pennington to Sixth Avenue. This start will be crowded, so please be careful.  We will need to make room for the front pack as they loop back onto Pennington. 
 
Course Safety: Please stay within the marked course at all times.  Tucson Police Department will be providing road control, Trafficade will set the barricades, Rural Metro will provide ambulance support.
 
The ambulances are on hand for medical emergencies only, not for basic transportation -- please note that it is beyond our capabilities to transport you back to the finish line if you are merely tired or blistered.  If you need to drop out of the race, please follow the route back to the finish line (avoiding the timing mats).  Tucson being Tucson, we are not able to close the roads indefinitely, so at about 10:00 am, ADOT and TPD will assess the road closure situation and may ask any remaining athletes to move to the sidewalks -- this is especially important at the I-10 underpass.
 
Remember: there is no sag vehicle.  If you need to drop out of the course, you must make arrangements to get yourself to the staging area.
 
Construction: There is no scheduled construction this year.  Hooray for that!
 
Changing Distance: We can still accommodate you if you want to switch from the half-marathon to the 5k.  If you want to do the 5k, you must notify the volunteers at packet pick-up.  If you want to change to the half-marathon, please bring a check to registration for the additional $40 fee.

COURSE AND STAGING INFORMATION
The Half-Marathon Course: the map is below and a detailed description of the half-marathon course can be found at http://www.azroadrunners.org
- According to RRCA insurance regulations, we are required to ask you not to wear headphones.     
-  As you head up and down A-Mountain, please stay to the right - do not cut the tangents on the 2-way stretch of road.  The same applies on the brief out-and-back on the Santa Cruz Bikepath - keep to the right.     
 
 - Trafficade manages our barricade plan, and special thanks, too, to Dave Hill for measuring the half-marathon and 5k courses.   
-   Rural Metro will have ambulances at the finish line and the Santa Cruz River Path entrance at approximately 9.5 miles into the race.

- Students from St. Augustine High School will be on hand at the start/finish line water stations.    
- Thanks to volunteers from Sam Hughes Grade School Cross Country for handling the water station at Mile 1.5  
- Special thanks to the University of Arizona Wildcat Running Club who will be out on the course in force to ensure that you go in the right directions and that you are safe.  
-   Finally, please note that the Tucson Police Department will make the final determination of the official course closure time -- we will keep the finish line open for every runner, of course, but depending on a host of safety variables, TPD may ask final finishers to move to sidewalks and obey pedestrian traffic laws.     
No bicycles, skateboards, roller skates, or pets allowed on the course.

Big Day at TMC Get Moving Tucson Half-Marathon Events . . .

Oct 25, 2015

Well, that was quite a day today.  As you can see in the News column below, our timer Greg Wenneborg has done an excellent job of getting results posted quickly.  Email me or Greg if you have changes to make, but please know that we're working through the 5k and will have some updated results soon.  In the meantime, congratulations to Craig Curley and Jennifer Bergman for winning the TMC A-Mountain Half-Marathon -- fast running by both, with a new course record by Ms. Bergman.  And congratulations to all of you who completed the 2015 Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown -- thanks to SAR volunteer Mike Wilson, here is an early list of Triple Crown finishers!

On a more sober note: the runner who collapsed early in the race is safely in the hospital and is on the mend.  We are so very grateful to our fellow runners who provided immediate care, and to our friends at Tucson Police Department, Rural Metro, Tucson Fire Department, and Tucson Ham Radio for being able to manage that crisis.  Once we get permission from his family, we can share more.  Now, in terms of the drunk driver who got past TPD and onto A-Mountain -- he has been arrested and is currently in jail.  Once we know more about that we will share with our running community.  Thank you again for doing our race -- and congratulations on all of your efforts!

TMC Get Moving Tucson Awards and Age Group Prizes updated

Oct 16, 2015

We have a great up-front field in the TMC A-Mountain Half-Marathon, including Olympic Trials Marathon Qualifier Autumn Rey from TMC, and a whole group of former UA standouts, including national class runner Jennifer Bergman.  Here is the prize money and gift certificates that they will be chasing . . . 

 

The 2015 Half-Marathon Prize Money Structure

• $100 to first overall male and $100 to first overall female; $50 to top overall Master's (Over-40) male and female

• $200 to the top 5 males who break 1:11 and to the top 5 females who break 1:26

• $500 for course records.  Current course records are Scott Smith’s 1:06:23 (2012) and Ariana Hilborn's 1:21:19 (2013)

++ Runners who break the course record will receive $500, but not the additional $200

My wife says this is too complicated, but we are trying to reward performance and local running.  So, as an example, if a man wins the race overall in 1:11:01 but is second to the "A" he will get $100.  If the wining man is first man to the "A" and is also a member of the Southern Arizona Roadrunners, he will win $300.

Again, I am grateful to all the participants, sponsors, volunteers, vendors, and partners! 

Randy Accetta, Race Director

Now on to the race itself:

The 2014 edition marked the 10th year that the Get Moving Tucson race has been held Downtown, continuing our commitment to highlighting major locations in our community.  However, this race has been held for over 30 years, originally held on a course staged at Sabino High School under the name the Special Olympic Benefit Run, otherwise known as the SOB 10-Miler.  We are grateful to be part of this long-standing Tucson tradition.

The 2014 TMC Get Moving Tucson A-Mountain Half-Marathon was won by Alex Troncoso in 1:14:36.  Despite trailing at the iconic "A" on top of Sentinel Peak, Alex rallied to win his first half-marathon ahead of UA grad student Kurt Michels (1:16:27).  Alex and Kurt both run for the Running Shop Racing Team and are heading to the NYC Marathon in November.

Third place went to former Sunnyside High School standout, Anthony Francisco (1:17:58).  The three men all took a wrong turn just past the 3.1 mile mark and ran an extra few hundred yards, but still managed to take home top honors even though they ran an estimated minute longer.

Women's winner Autumn Ray, a doctor at TMC, finished in 1:22:06, ahead of training partner Amy Cole (1:23:40).  Autumn and Amy both run for the Sonoran Distance Project, a group of women seeking Olympic Marathon Trials qualifying times. Danielle Higgins, former Pima Community College track standout, took third in 1:29:34.  

In the Tucson Lifestyle 5k, Michigan's David Jordan was first overall, while Christine Anderson was first woman in 20:05.  

Over 1,300 registered for the event, with an average age of 41.  As is the case nationally, the half-marathon and 5k skewed female, with over 700 female registrants.  MEN: it’s time to start running and walking!!!

In the TMC A-Mountain Half, 557 runners finished, with special congratulations to our two last finisher who tied: Michael Moynihan and Debbie Ingraham.  It is always such an inspiration to watch runners accomplish a momentous goal – and we think climbing A-Mountain and the middle of a half-marathon counts as a momentous goal! 

Three-hundred and seventy-eight participants finished the companion Tucson Lifestyle 5k, while there were 89 official finishers in the Cox Charities One Mile, part of the SAR FitKidz series.

With a unique half-marathon course that climbs to the top of A-Mountain, Get Moving Tucson is the third leg of the Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown.  The TMC Get Moving Event raised $5,000 for Cox Charities which funneled funds to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tucson.  An additional $5,160 was raised via the Triple Crown to the late Gabe Zimmerman’s favorite regional charity, Child and Family Resources.  In addition, local cross country and running teams from Sahuaro HS, St. Augustine HS, Catalina HS, and the UA’s Wildcat Running Club received funds.

Title sponsor Tucson Medical Center has supported the event for the past four years, allowing Tucson to have an urban half-marathon neighborhoods and communities not normally used in local running races.  Cox Communications has been a recent major sponsor, including providing television the commercials and the children’s activities. 

This year saw a cast of local businesses provide sponsorship:

The Running Shop
Tucson Racquet and Fitness Club
Dan Kalm State Farm
Afni Careers
Snell & Wilmer Law Firm
Eternal Spring Water

Media Sponsors include our friends at these local outlets:

Tucson Lifestyle Magazine and http://www.tucsonlifestyle.com

Post-Race Survey Results: A quick thank you to all the TMC Get Moving Tucson participants who completed the survey we sent out.  

As I write this, 137 Get Moving Tucson participants have completed the post-race survey we sent out 24 hours ago.  I will keep reading through them, but I want you to know that we take your comments seriously.  

As we know with surveys, it’s best to look for themes rather than one-off praise or criticism.  In that vein, we hear you on the need for more restrooms, more medals for half-marathon finishers, and better signage/information on race day.  We also hear you on the desire for a smoother pre-race t-shirt pickup.

Many of you acknowledge that in addition to your registration dollars, sponsors are an essential part of events like this.  I want to thank you for acknowledging our roster of key sponsors: Tucson Medical Center, Cox Communications, The Running Shop, Dan Kalm State Farm (we will get him to have a booth next year!!), Afni, Snell & Wilmer, Tucson Racquet and Fitness Club – and our media sponsors of the Daily Star and Caliente, KHIT 107.5, Cox, Tucson Lifestyle, and The Morning Blend.  Your survey indicates that many of you think higher of them for helping our sport – please be sure to let them know when you get a chance!

Many of you also acknowledge the value of the Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown.  (As an aside, please know how grateful we are to Ross Zimmerman and Emily Nottingham for allowing us to honor their son with this series.)

OK, now, to other topics that came up in the survey. . . Walt Whitman’s “Leaves of Grass” has this line: “Do I contradict myself?  Very well, then, I contradict myself.  I am large, I contain multitudes.”  

In that spirit: some of you really didn’t like this year’s shirt – but way more of you said how much you liked it.  

Experienced runners seem to not need medals, but new runners like them, even for short distances. 

Some of you loved the volunteers on the course: “The people along the route were great! Especially the ones who gave out orange slices, how nice! And the cheerleaders, they help me more then I can let them know (at least while I'm running)”.  

But others didn’t: “The course was gorgeous! The drummers on the mountain was so cool! But the people out on the course cheering were unenthusiastic. At one point, after I passed two of the boys near mile 11, they told me to run faster. I did not pay to have that type of experience and I would never pay to be criticized.”

Some of you said there was plenty of water along the course, while others said there weren’t enough water stations. For the record: we had water at 1.5, 3.1, 6.5, 7.5, 9.5 and 12 (and gatorade at 9.5). 

In terms of pricing: many of you seem to recognize that SAR races are very inexpensive compared to other local and national-type races.  Respondents are very clear that you want this type of lower pricing for local races and you don’t need special amenities such as a VIP pass.  To that end, I will strive to keep the hometown feel that you say you like, but I may try adding some added menu items for the 2015 races I put on for those who want more.

Finally, a couple of one-off comments resonate for many of us who have lived in Tucson for a long time:

“Fix ALL the pot holes...I thought I was in a 3rd world country!” 

and

“I'd be even happier if I beat Benito.”

2013 TMC Get Moving Tucson Race Report

Oct 20, 2013

We’ll have a more-detailed race report at a later date, but here’s the quick version:

Over 1400 runners participated in the TMC Get Moving Tucson event, the third event in the 2013 Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown produced by the Southern Arizona Roadrunners.  Over $13,000 was raised for local non-profits, including Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Tucson and Child and Family Resources.  To see some of the many beautiful race photos, please go to facebook.com/Southern.Arizona.Roadrunners/photos_albums.  We will also have a link for race photos for each person to purchase pretty soon. . . .Thanks to Kerry Whelan and Scott Cnockaert for the great photos . . .

Over 200 children ran the Cox Charities Mile, a Southern Arizona Roadrunner"FitKidz” free one mile promoting health and wellness.  All race results can be found here (with final results to be posted over the coming days)—all age group awards can be picked up at The Running Shop through November 1st.

In terms of the fast running, a handful of Olympic hopefuls took to the city streets on Sunday morning, trying to win some prize money in the TMC Get Moving Tucson A-Mountain Half-Marathon.  Prize money was based on times not overall placing, with over $4,000 possible.  In the men’s race, former Pima Community College standout Craig Curley out-dueled University of Arizona law school graduate Ian Burrell to take first place overall in a time of 1:08:03.  Burrell finished in 1:09:14, with UofA graduate student Kirk Michels in third in 1:09:58.  Two weeks after finishing in 5th place at the US National Marathon Championships, Curley won $200 for being the first runner to the “A” on top of Sentinel Peak. 

The women’s race saw a duel between two Olympic hopefuls, marathoner Ariana Hilborn and former University of Arizona steeplechaser Maggie Callahan. 

Hilborn (33) from Heber, Arizona, was the first woman across the line in 1:21:17, to set a new course record on the Downtown-area course.  Hilborn won $900 for being the first to the top of the A-Mountain and setting the new course record.  Hilborn was challenged to the top of A-Mountain by Callahan (25), running her first half-marathon.  Now living in Boulder, but still a member of the Southern Arizona Roadrunners, Callahan took second place, breaking the old course record and also winning $200.  In third place was Alita Jokesch, a UofA graduate student running for the Workout Group.

Event History: The TMC Get Moving Tucson is in its 31st year, though this is just the third time as a half-marathon in Downtown Tucson.  Previously, the event has been a 10-mile run, staged from 2006-2010 in Downtown Tucson, but before that staged for over 25 years in the northeast of Tucson, at Sabino High School.

About the Southern Arizona Roadrunners:  Founded in 1972, the Southern Arizona Roadrunners is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting health and fitness in Tucson and Southern Arizona through running and walking.  SAR is one of the largest non-profit running clubs in the nation.

TMC Get Moving early online registration deadline extended

Sep 30, 2013

Instead of closing early online registration on September 30th as advertised, why are we extending the early online registration discount for another two weeks?  Simple: we don’t want money to get in the way of your running!  Sure, putting on an urban half-marathon is expensive, but it’s more expensive to have a sedentary city.  We want you to have fun at SAR events.  Running and walking are the secrets to a happy life: strong muscles & strong heart, great scenery, good people, and plenty of burned calories.  We’ll do what we can to make it easy for you!  So whether fast or slow, short or far, we just want you to pick one of our three race distances and get moving.

We’re keeping the low online registration fee until midnight October 13th:

$65 for the TMCA-Mountain Half-Marathon
$25 for the Tucson Lifestyle 5k
$0 for everyone in the FREE Cox Charities Mile, part of SAR’s FitKidz program.

TMC Get Moving Tucson Post-Race

Oct 9, 2011

We’ll have a full race summary at some point, but for now please accept our appreciation for doing the Get Moving Tucson Half-Marathon and 5k.  Over 1,000 folks registered for the half-marathon and about 500 registered for the 5k. Results can be found here.

Race Photos: You can see some great race photos at www.photos.daronshade.com.  Photos are from the 3.5 mile mark on A-Mountain and then at the 10-mile mar, so search for your picture. You can purchase reprints in all sizes, including a digital image.

Age-Group Awards: Age-group awards are three-deep in five-year categories—if you received an age-group prize but missed the awards ceremony, please visit The Running Shop to pick up your prize.

Triple Crown: Please remember that only those who specifically registered for the Triple Crown and completed all three events are due to receive the special finisher’s award.  If you did not pick up your personalized sandstone at the race, they are now at The Running Shop (3055 North Campbell), arranged in first-name alphabetical order. Somehow, about 60 awards disappeared on race day,so we are re-printing all of those on new sandstones.  Frankly, it’s a great mystery to us—there is no rhyme or reason to the order of the missing, so we think others just picked one up, not realizing that they are personalized and only for Triple Crown participants. We’re ordering reprints from our friends at Tucson Trophy, and they should be at The Running Shop within a week or so.  Give us a couple of days to get through the details, but if you still have questions, contact Race Director .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) 

Volunteers: Thank you to the over 125 volunteers who helped with the event—Saguaro High School Cross Country, St. Augustine High School Cross Country, the UA’s Delta Sigma Pi and AKPsi business fraternities, Neighbor’s For Justice, and all the SAR volunteers at packet pick-up and on race day: Steve and Sheryl

NOTE: strollers are allowed on the 5k course only. Strollers and walkers—stay to the right on the route.  About 45 minutes into the 5k the half-marathon lead runners will enter onto the 5k route—please give them the right-of-way as you finish the 5k.  Culligan water will be located at the intersection of 8th Street and Fourth Avenue, approximately 1 and 2 miles into the race.

How to Run the Half: Sure, the A-Mountain Half is a challenging course, but here are some ideas on how to run it, mile by mile.

Miles 1-2 From the starting line on Church at the Court House/Jacome Plaza north to Sixth and along Sixth to I-10 is all a gentle downhill.  Be careful of starting this first mile too fast.  From Sixth/St. Mary’s you’ll turn south on Bonita and have the whole street to yourselves until you hit Congress. Heading west on Congress to the A-Mountain road at Cuesta is a gradual rise - not very noticeable, but still, a bit uphill. You’ll be on the north side of Congress all the way to Cuesta.  Again, be patient on this stretch.

Miles 3-4  Once you turn south on Cuesta, you will begin to notice a bit of an uphill.  OK, a bit more than a bit.  Almost the same distance as the famed Saguaro hill, the climb up to the “A” on A-Mountain can be broken into a few sections.  Stay to the right side of the road on this whole stretch.  The first piece through the neighborhoods is gradual, so try to get in a steady rhythm without working too hard.

As you hit the parking lot on the right about a half-mile up the hill, you’ll notice a flattening for a couple of hundreds of yards.  This is a good time to re-assess your pace and shake out your arms a bit.  Then you have a quarter mile of steepness to the split at the top of the mountain where we’re planning a water/cytomax stop. The race route will take you to the right, counter-clockwise, with a gorgeous view of the Starr Pass area to the west and the Santa Rita Mountains to the south.  You can see the sparkling observatories of Kitt Peak and the mountains surrounding Baboquivari Peak.

The hill softens a bit as you make the half-mile push for the red-white-and-blue “A.”  There are a couple of false summits as you approach the top, so maintain a steady pace and a smile on the way up.  Once you hit the low brick wall marking the parking areas on the east side, you’re almost to the top. Another hundred yards or so, and you level out for a few steps before plunging downhill.

Miles 4-5 Once you’re off the hill, it will be tempting to pick up the pace and try to make back some of the time.
But remember that the downhill is probably the hardest part of the course.  Enjoy the pull of gravity, but you’ll want to be careful of running too fast - don’t brake yourself, but don’t overstride too much, either. Like with the Tucson Marathon, too much too fast will blow out your quads, so be smart on the downhill section.

Miles 6-7 The half-mile stretch heading east on Congress is pretty easy.  Please stay inside the cones on the south lane of Congress.  You’ll turn south on Grande and stay on the right side of the road all the way down to the bike path entrance just north of 22nd/Starr Pass Blvd. You may be tempted to pick up the pace on this stretch, but it’s probably better to be patient here.  We’ll have a water station, a medical tent, and an ambulance at the dirt lot when you enter the bike path on Grande.  At this point you should be in a nice rhythm.

Mile 7-9 Once on the bike path, you will stay on the right hand side of the bike path and head south for exactly 660 yards then do a U-turn and head back north still staying on the right side of the lane as you pass runners for another 660 yards until the path opens up. (As you can probably tell, we needed this turn-around on the bike path to ensure that the course is exactly 13.1 miles.) You’ll head north on the bike path all the way until St. Mary’s again. Please note, though, that you will run through a construction zone on this strip. The Ashton Company will clear the area for you, but it will be dirt here.  You should be feeling good, so this is a nice place to step up the pace a bit. There are some shady stretches and you’re getting closer to home on this primarily flat stretch.

Mile 9-10 Exiting the bike path onto St. Mary’s is a bit tricky. As you come up the hill off the bike path approaching St. Mary’s, you can either hug the pathway to the right and stay on the narrow sidewalk heading east across the Santa Cruz or you can jump down from the curb to the main roadway. If I were racing it, I would probably hop the curb, but it’s a bit high, perhaps as many as 10”, so be careful here. 

As you head under the I-10, you’re about 2/3 of mile from the start/finish line, but you still have almost 4 miles to run. If you feel good, it’s a nice time to start racing,  but also a good place to be patient and conserve some energy if you’re feeling tired.

Miles 10-11
This is a tough mental part of the course: you will head south on Church straight past the finish line as the 5k finishers are either finishing to your left or hanging out cheering for you. But you still have 3.1 miles to go. The first part of the 3.1 miles is east on Congress - most of the 5k runners should be done by the time you hit this stretch, but we’ll have the lane coned into two parts, one for the east-bound trip and one for the west-bound trip. At the east end of Downtown, you cross to the Fourth Avenue underpass so you’ll want to watch out for the rail tracks. You’ll be tired, so be careful here. Still, this is a good place to run hard - you’re almost done, so look ahead and see who you can pick off. 

Coming out of the Fourth Avenue tunnel, you’ll turn right onto 9th Street, and head about two blocks east before turning left on Bean Street, then left again on 8th Street and heading back to Fourth Avenue.  I happen to like turns like this: it shakes out my legs and the corners give me something to think about—indeed, you can sneak a peak at competitors.

Miles 11-12 Heading north on Fourth Avenue is a bit annoying: there will be good crowds and a water station for you, but you’ll be climbing a deceptive uphill for about a half-mile to University Avenue. Be patient, but be tough.  You’ll turn right at University and head towards the UA, then do one final U-turn just before you hit Euclid - then it’s back down University and rocket-ship down Fourth Avenue all the way back to Congress. Use the downhill on Fourth and the crowds to your advantage.  You’re almost done so let ‘er rip if you can.

Mile 13 The last mile of the course is downhill on Fourth then up the Fourth Avenue underpass hill, with a finish along Congress and Church. Rock star it here: push the pace, enjoy the shade, and run to the finish line.  You’ll be done in no time—then it’s on to the food, drink, music, relaxation, and free massages!

Get Moving Social Training Runs start August 22

Aug 22, 2011

Want to get ready for the TMC Get Moving Tucson Half-Marathon, featuring A-Mountain?  Then join the Southern Arizona Roadrunners at weekly social runs every Monday night.  Groups will leave from the Meet Me at Maynard’s weekly run at 5:45 and 6:00 pm—meet at 400 North Toole and look for the A-Mountain folks. The route from Maynard’s is almost exactly 6 miles—you can view it here..  We’ll start at Maynard’s and go straight west on Congress about 1.5 miles to the road up A-Mountain.  We’ll go up and down, then back along Congress to the finish at Maynard’s.  You can go farther or shorter as you wish . . .

RULES OF THE ROAD
* Bring water, wear bright colored shirt, bring a flashlight lights if you will be out past 7:00 pm
* Watch for traffic on A-Mountain – stay outside the white lines, run facing traffic when possible. 
* The route is counter-clockwise, so for the final 360-degree loop you will be running with traffic. Watch for cars—some cars go too fast.  Please be vigilant!

Training Tip: If you’re worried about being able to do the whole thing, give yourself three weeks to complete the whole route. 
1. In Week One, turn back at Cuesta and Belle Vista Street, part way up the hill (about 4.0 miles total). 

2. In Week Two, turn back at the split in the road (about 5 miles total). 

3. In Week Three, complete the whole top-of-the-mountain loop.

Tucson Got Moving, Race Report

Oct 15, 2010

Well, we sure got moving at the TMC Get Moving Tucson 10-miler and 5k.  With a certified 10-mile course, some fine records fell, including overall winner Craig Curley who completed the circuit in 50:02 to snatch $275, $100 for first place, $100 for bonus time, and $100 for leading the race at the 7-mile mark.  To my mind, Craig is pretty amazing: not only did he set a new course record on the Downtown course, he was at the race helping build the finish line scaffolding about 3 hours before the race started.

Ian Johnson took second with a fine time of 53:24, followed by a resurgent former UA runner Craig Dye, with James Miles, and master’s winner Shaun Haley rounding out the top five for the men.

In the women’s race, newcomer Gina Slaby, ran 1:00:59, winning by over three minutes with a Downtown loop course record.  On active duty in the Navy, Slaby is training for the Armed Forces Championships at the Marine Corps Marathon.  Stephanie Wenneborg continued her great running in second place, with triathlete Lisa Ribes picking up third place.  Fourth went to first master’s runner, Janet Holland, while fifth went to Merry Dearmon, who had an amazing race considering she’s graduated to the 55-year age group.

According to statistician and course-certifier, Dave Hill, the following runners set Arizona age records for the 10-mile distance: Craig Curley, Marvin Makus, Richard Senti, James Hudson, Norris Taylor and Paul Robillia for the men, and Stephanie Wenneborg, Lisa Ribes, Janet Holland, Merry Dearmon, Susan Ahrens, Dawn Arnold, Linda Brewer and Judie Shyman for the women. 

Bruce Van Lokeren won the middle-of-the-pack jacket in the 10-miler, and Evi Loveres won the middle-of-the-pack jacket for the 5k.  Please see Sharon at The Running Shop for your prizes! A hearty congratulations to all!

Speaking of congratulations, they are in certainly in order for newlyweds Eliot Peterson and Jennifer Roper who finished the 5k tied at 35:51, a few hours before they tied the knot.

Congratulations are also in order for dad Kurt and son Maarten Schmidt.  Maarten is the blind 11-year-old who runs almost 40 miles a week.  As the family noted in an email: “Maarten had a great run.  Even by converting his time for a true 5k, he set a personal best.  We broke 40 minutes.  That was our goal.  We also learned some better things about running together and have developed some ideas for working on his stride for the next race.  We’re going to do the Marana Community United 5k on 11/13 that will cross over I-10 at the new Twin Peaks Interchange.  Should be a lot of fun. . . .  Count on us to be a part of next year’s Get Moving Tucson 5k. The Schmidt Family - Kurt, Elsa, Christian & Maarten”

At the risk of being too maudlin, it’s things like these, from speedsters to weddings to blind children trying their best, that make running such an amazing sport.  Everyone can have fun and try their best – it’s a beautiful thing!

One thing that wasn’t beautiful in the race was the 5k – err, the 2.91 miler.  The race director (that would be me) apologizes profusely for course snafus that allowed the lead 5k runners to miss the turn on 9th street, thus leading everyone on the simpler but shorter route.  Indeed, as if that wasn’t bad enough, I’ve also learned that a number of 10-milers were stopped by TPD at the Fourth Avenue and 6th Street intersection. The traffic plan calls for traffic to be diverted so that runners have free reign and Fourth Avenue has a hard close, and I am very sorry for the delays.  So far, I’ve heard of nothing that would have interfered with the age group results, but if you believe your finish would have been affected, please contact me.

Aside from those miseries, the event seemed to be well received, with some awesome side festivities in conjunction with the wonderful Tucson Meet Yourself festival: Japanese swordplay on the library lawn, Chinese Dancers, Pistor Dancers and bluegrass bands at the main stage, plus free massages from Cortiva, free pilates from Plexus Pilates, and a host of other Tucson Meet Yourself activities.  The Tucson Meet Yourself staging area seems to be a hit with race participants – thanks are due to Mia Hansen and the whole festival for incorporating us so nicely in this Tucson tradition.

Thanks are also in order to a host of partners and sponsors: without funding from Tucson Medical Center, the event could not take place.  TMC has become a leading voice in the fight for health and wellness – and we are grateful for their support.

The Running Shop provided all the age group and overall awards – if you have not claimed your age group award yet, please head to The Running Shop!  Muscle Milk provided plenty of refreshing protein recovery drinks plus some funding.  As always, Pepsi stepped up and provided Pepsi, Pepsi Max, and Aquafina drinking water – we are always grateful to our local Pepsi bottler and distributor for all of their SAR support!

Sunflower Market provided fruit and snack items again, while Culligan/Oasis water provided all the water on the course and at the finish line.  Thanks very much to these local companies for helping us have such a healthy city!

Of course, nobody would know about the race without our media sponsors: Cox Communications, Clear Channel Radio and 92.9 The Mountain, the Arizona Daily Star and Caliente, and Tucson Lifestyle magazine.  Thanks for helping us get the word out!!

Tucson Police Department and the City of Tucson are crucial to having a safe and successful event.  The Tucson Ham Radio Society provided radio support throughout the course—thanks to Cary Fishman for setting that up.

Thanks, too, to Sahuaro High School for all their water station support – with toga and cheering, they sure provided an awesome lift to runners along the bike path and Fourth Avenue.  Thanks as well to all the Workout Group gang who volunteered, plus the SAR Board members and others who chipped in, from Marc Janis, Jocie Riley, Sandra Heater at Friday registration to the 30 race day volunteers, including the Ragnar Relay boys who helped set up at 4:00 in the morning!  Thanks, too, to the plenty of UA student volunteers who were along the course and at the staging area.

Finally, thanks to the volunteers from HealthSouth, the American Heart Association, and the Tucson Heart Ball who handed out water at the warehouse district on the 10-miler. 

Thanks to everyone involved, we’re able to raise funds for the Tucson Heart Ball/American Heart Association, the TMC Children’s Miracle Network, Greater Tucson Leadership, IdeaFunding/IdeaXchange, the Southern Arizona Roadrunners, and the event host, Tucson Meet Yourself.
