See what your running friends look like with clothes on and laugh along with special guest David Fitzsimmons from the Arizona Daily Star as as he takes on the running community in Tucson. “Fitz” is a nationally recognized political cartoonist and satirist, well known for a sharp sense of humor and a way with words. Rumor has it that he’s also pretty savvy about the local running scene, so who knows what barbs may be thrown . . .
This is your dinner, so come down to celebrate yourself, your friends, and people you don’t yet know. Festivities include photos, toasts, roasts, awards to volunteers, awards to the Running Shop Grand Prix winners, and recognition of others instrumental in helping make Tucson one of the best running cities in the country. Our goal is to have fun, talk, laugh, share stories, and celebrate the awesome sport of running. Although it’s a Southern Arizona Roadrunners event, if you’re not one of the 1300 SAR members, don’t worry—we like to hang out with anyone who likes running, so come on down and have some root beer . . .
We asked survey questions a few months ago and you told us what you want. So we’ve got a new location, the hip Copper Hall at Hotel Congress, and we’re trying a new night, Friday night, January 25th. And we’re keeping the dinner price to a manageable $15. Here’s some more details. . . .
The 2012 SAR racing season is now officially underway with the Sun Run 10K and 5K in the history books! It can be tough training through the holidays, but with some of the lightening fast times recorded on the flat, fast courses, the winter hard work paid off!
Some runners use the Sun Run as a starting point for their season, to see where their fitness stands going into the spring. While other runners are already in great shape and hoped to acquire early points for The Running Shop Grand Prix! Whether you ran to race, find motivation, or partake in the post-race pancakes, Coach Greg Wenneborg and all the Pima Community College Track and Field athletes thank you for supporting their race!...

After unpredictable January weather the past several years, we thought about changing the name of our event, but lo and behold, the 2011 Sun Run lived up to its name!!! Runners still donned gloves and the occasional beanie, but it was a gorgeous day to race along the fast paths of Reid Park!
This has been a difficult month in our city. We lost great members of our community, including fellow runner Gabe Zimmerman. It seems that everyone is doing their part to help put the pieces back together and recover. It was great to see the spirit of our running community thriving on this day and to see good people coming together to do something we all love…
Awards from the Sun Run 10k/5k can be picked up at The Running Shop at 3055 N. Campbell Avenue (#153). ...
Thank you to everyone who came out to the Sun Run 5k and 10k. Results can be found here!
The weather leading up to the 2010 Sun Run had us a bit worried…a tornado touching down in Yuma, a blizzard warning for Pima County, 138MPH winds recorded at Kitt Peak, roads closed and flights cancelled due to weather. This certainly wouldn’t be the first year the Sun Run did not feature any “sun”. But lo and behold, the weather on race morning couldn’t have been any better! Blue skies and a 40 degree start made for some fast times and a great way to kick off the 2010 SAR racing season!
The Sun Run 10K overall winners were Craig Curley and Tia Accetta… more…
