May 7, 2013

The Tucson 5000 is this weekend—a long-standing Tucson tradition, the Tucson 5000 has historically been the place to go for a personal record.  So whether you’re super-speedy, a regular jogger, or just want to have a fun morning of running and walking around Reid Park, check out the race details on the SAR site.  Walk-in registration and packet pick-up will be at the Running Shop (3055 N. Campbell Avenue) from 10am to 2pm on Saturday May 11, 2013.  Race-day registration and packet pick-up will be at Ramada 14, Reid Park from 5.30 a.m. on race day. Please note that only cash or checks are accepted for payment.  Online registration goes through Saturday afternoon, so you can also sign up here online and pick up your number and shirt on race day!  Questions?

Tucson 5000 - Mother’s Day Edition!

May 12, 2012

You can pick you your packet today at the Running Shop at 3055 North Campbell between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM or simply pick up your bib number and shirt at the race on Sunday morning.  The race will start on Country Club just north of 22nd street and finish in the Reid Park at Ramada 10.  There is ample parking and bathrooms in the park. 

Also…Calling all nature and astronomy enthusiasts! At the Tucson 5000 race, the Steward Graduate Student Council (astronomy graduate students from UA) will be handing out information about the upcoming solar eclipse (May 20th) transit of Venus (June 5th). The next pair of transits of Venus occur December 11, 2117, and December 8, 2125…so for everyone alive right now, this is our last chance to see Venus pass between us and the Sun! The students will also be selling solar observing glasses (which will allow you to observe the transit of Venus, as well as future solar eclipses, safely) as a fundraiser for the council.

You can still sign up online!
