Tucson's Fastest 5k

One of the fastest 5Ks in the West! This pancake-flat, fast USATF certified course provides the perfect opportunity for a 5K PR. This race has been a Tucson staple for over 20 years with 20+ of the current Arizona age records for the 5k being set at the Tucson 5000!

This race is part of The Running Shop SAR Grand Prix..

NEW this year: In honor of Mother's Day, we will be running "The Mother's Day Mile". This is a one mile race open for all moms/dads where the idea is for parents and children to run and cross the finish line together. All women will receive a special finisher's prize that their children can give them! Children 10 and under are FREE. 

Note: All parents are welcome to run with a child, regardless of being a biological parent or not.
