Run Tucson’s 2022 TMC Trail Challenge

Run Tucson's TMC Trail Challenge

2022 Date Announced Soon!

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life . . . I wanted to live deep and suck all the marrow out of life . . . Thoreau

For twelve years now, we’ve held an in-person event for runners and walkers of all ages and abilities at the historic Old Tucson Studios.  Traditionally, the 4 mile & 1-mile trail run at Old Tucson Studios attracts everyone from children and novice trail runners to long time runners and speedsters.  


Thanks to race participants and the Tucson Realtors Charity Foundation (TRCF), the race raised over $6,000 for Community Home Repairs Project of Arizona, a non-profit dedicated to assisting low income homeowners in Tucson and Pima County by providing emergency home repairs and adaptive and safety modifications for people with disabilities. 



We are especially grateful to our long-time partner, the Southern Arizona Roadrunners.  You can find information on SAR programs and how to join the non-profit running club at

We are also grateful to our long-time title sponsor, Tucson Medical Center. On a personal level, TMC has been our favorite hospital ever since our daughter was born there 12 years ago — on a community level, TMC has been a leading voice for public health during this entire pandemic.  We stand in awe of their staff’s efforts at keeping our community safe.

Special thanks, too, to Cox Communications, for sponsoring our races for so many years

Information on the 2022 edition will be coming soon!

All race results since 2009 can be found at our friends, the Southern Arizona Roadrunners:
