Packet pick-up is at The Running Shop, 3055 N Campbell Ave
Friday, October 23: 3:00-6:00 pm
Saturday, October 24: 10:00-1:00 pm.
Following social distancing guidelines, race shirts, souvenir numbers, and race medals will be set up outside of the Running Shop on Friday and Saturday. We ask that you wear a face covering and try to maintain a distance of 6 ft. between yourself and someone else when possible. Please send a friend if you are feeling ill. Shirts and medals will be available at The Running Shop after race weekend for those who can't make it on Friday or Saturday.
If you're interesed in registering, we have about 10 slots available.
As we manage the difficulties of producing a running event in the midst of our national public health crisis, we'll find a creative way to keep us all motivated, healthy, and happy! We'll use this race page, email, and social media channels to provide updated information as we learn more. For questions, contact Randy at email@example.com.
We're grateful for the feedback and insights from all who participated in our surveys, as well as from Ross Zimmerman, and our friends at Tucson Medical Center, Pima County, and the City of Tucson. While none of us want to do virtual races, due the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic on Southern Arizona, we feel this is the best decision for both individual and public health in Pima County.
As a virtual event, you can complete any of these distances by running or walking in any location you wish:
- Cox Charities One Mile
- Tucson Lifestyle 5k
- TMC Get Moving Tucson Half Marathon
As with our recent Virtual events, we will mail the race goodies to out-of-town folks while holding packet pick-up in Tucson on race weekend. Everyone will receive
- a long-sleeve race shirt
- souvenir race number
- souvenir circular coaster medallion, highlighting both the TMC Get Moving event and the 2020 Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown.
Yes, this race will count towards your SAR Virtual Grand Prix participation points.
All Virtual Finishers will be eligible for raffle prizes from The Running Shop and Run Tucson.
This is the third and final event of the 2020 Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown, raising funds for local organizations, including over $5,000 for the BEYOND-Tucson Foundation, over $3,000 for Team Hoyt Arizona chair athletes, and at least $1,000 for the Southern Arizona Roadrunners.

PRIZE MONEY RULES AND REGULATIONS
- NOTE: following USATF and RRCA guidelines, the use of headphones in prize money races is prohibited -- that is, prize money will not be distributed to runners wearing headphones in these events. We strongly discourage the use of headphones. From USATF: "The following shall be considered assistance and therefore not allowed: . . . The visible possession or use by athletes of video, audio, or communications devices in the competition area [ . . .] those competing in Championships for awards, medals, or prize money may not use such devices . . . headphones remain banned for any athlete competing in a USA Championship . . ."
- NOTE: All prize money winners will be required to complete appropriate tax information in order to receive checks.
- NOTE: A limited number of complimentary entries for elite athletes are available. Send resume and ways you can add value to the race to race director Randy Accetta at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We follow the RRCA Fair Competition Policies.
While USA Track & Field is the governing body and issuer of rules for the sport of running, local event directors are encouraged to adopt these RRCA recommended policies to further support and promote fair competition for athletes, especially those competing for prize money and age group awards.
Prize Money Eligibility Policy
To be eligible for elite entry or prize purse, an athlete must:
Not be currently serving a suspension issued by the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) or the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) for use of a banned substance
Not have ever served a ban issued by USADA or WADA for the use of performance enhancing drugs
Not be represented by coaches and/or agents who have had 2 or more athletes receiving such suspensions in the previous 4 years
Not be represented by coaches and/or agents who served a ban for use of performance enhancing drugs during their own athletic career*
Provide proper documentation proving they are eligible for prize money (form W-9, W-8ECI or W-8BEN)
Sign a statement attesting they are in compliance with USADA and WADA anti-doping regulations related to banned substance use and if issued a doping suspension or ban in the future, they will not be allowed back at the event for any reason
Consent to random drug testing according to the standards and procedures of USATF, USADA and WADA
Any athlete that believes they have been barred from the event or the opportunity to earn prize money at the event because of mistaken identity due to near or exact name of a person currently suspended, banned or previously banned, must submit documentation certified by a notary in advance to the race director or elite athlete coordinator of the event proving that they are not the same person identified as serving a suspension, ban or previous ban. (event organizers will need to clearly outline the exact person to submit documentation to for this recourse section of the policy)
*Athletes have a duty to ensure they are represented by reputable coaches and agents and have a duty to consult the WADA list of athletes that are or have served a doping ban before signing with a coach or agent.
About the Race:
The TMC Get Moving Tucson Half-Marathon event was founded by Randy Accetta, long-time SAR Board member and past SAR President. Working at the time with Jannie Cox, the first Get Moving 10-Miler was a cross-city race. Over recent years, the race has been brought to Downtown Tucson and includes iconic A-Mountain, the Santa Cruz Riverpath, and Downtown Tucson neighborhoods. The Get Moving Tucson event is on the SAR calendar, with the TMC A-Mountain Half-Marathon on the SAR "Running Shop Grand Prix." A former 2:19 marathoner who ran in the 1996 US Olympic Trials Marathon, Randy is a Mentor in Residence at the University of Arizona's McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship and is the national Director of Coaching Education for the Road Runners Club of America. He and his wife Tia live in Tucson with their two young children, both of whom are faster than Randy.
Proceeds from the event will fund local organizations, including Cox Charities, Team Hoyt Arizona, BEYOND-Tucson Foundation, and the Southern Arizona Roadrunners.
We want to thank a host of community partners for help with this event, including our title sponsor, Tucson Medical Center. Without TMC's support, we could not produce such a large event. We urge all runners and walkers to patronize our sponsors and partners-- check out their logos and links on the sidebar!
Interested in being a sponsor? Contact Race Director Randy Accetta. It's expensive to put on a race Downtown, and we're looking for course sponsors, t-shirt sponsors, and post-event sponsors. Join the healthiest community in Arizona!
