Tucson's Fastest 5k

TUCSON 5000: 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..

MOTHER'S DAY MILE: 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 adults are welcome to run with a child, regardless of being a biological parent or not. 

Tank Top Shirts: Tank Top shirts will be given to 5k runners first, and then once the race starts, the mile runners can pick up their shirts. First come, first serve. Sizes not guarenteed. 

Stickers: All participants in the Mother's Day Mile will receive a special sticker of the race logo while supplies last!
