Beneficiaries

Proceeds from this event will go to help the Pima Community College Track and Field and Cross Country Teams.  Pima College offers great educational opportunities to local student athletes through their various athletic teams. 

A little information about the Pima Community College Track and Field/Cross Country Teams…

Over 75 student-athletes are on the roster for the 2015-16 Track and Field season.  Both the Track & Field and Cross Country Teams have enjoyed success at the national level in recent years with an individual national champion coming from Pima in four of the last five years.  Pima Cross Country or Track & Field teams have placed in the top 10 at the National Championships 9 times in the last 5 years!  Our last national champion was Kaysee Pilgrim.  She won the national title in the High Jump this year.  

We have high hopes for the coming season and seem to be firing on all cylinders.  Our team has grown tremendously and we are experiencing some growing pains.  The team would like to raise $10,000 to pay for team supplies, shoes or books for needy student-athletes, an additional coach, and any other needs that arise that are not covered by our budget.  You can help by signing up and participating in the Sun Run!  Also, Track and Cross Country Athletes will be at the event and will be selling coupon cards for $20 that help with fundraising.  If you would like to make a donation to the program, please contact Head Coach Greg Wenneborg at 520-977-4072 or by email at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

We appreciate your support and participation in the 2017 Sun Run 5k and 10k!

Kids' and Post-Race Activities

All this and a great breakfast! After the race, enjoy a warm pancake breakfast and coffee served by our very own Pima College Cross Country and Track and Field Teams. This is quickly becoming a popular addition to the Tucson running scene.
