For the first time ever, Tucson runners can cruise a speedy course along the beautiful rolling hills in the Painted Desert area of the cactus-covered Tucson Mountains, with a rocket-ship finish to the shade-covered staging area nestled amongst the palm trees on the west side of Pima Community College.

Join us for the Inaugural TMC Tucson 10k, scheduled for Sunday morning, September 17th.    A 10k run/walk and companion 5k walk/run, with a kids dash that ensures that all ages and abilities can participate.

Beneficiaries

The race is the second leg of the Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown and will benefit both the BEYOND-TUCSON Foundation and the Southern Arizona Roadrunners.  You know about SAR, but did you know about BEYOND:

Founded in reaction to the mass shooting of January 11, 2011, BEYOND's "mission is to promote the use of good science and rational analysis to improve individual and community health." 

BEYOND is unique Rx health formula emphasizing four key pillars that supports optimum physical and mental health:

EXPLORE:  Getting outdoors and spending time in nature;
MOVE:  Engaging in regular physical activity;
NOURISH:  Eating healthy foods; and
CONNECT:  Connecting with one another as a community.

These four key pillars support the basis of BEYOND’s mission. Along with its partners, BEYOND provides year-round opportunities for the public to participate in a series of healthy activities and to learn more about the scientific research that shows why these four pillars are critical for optimal physical and mental health.

Community Partners
