Meet Me Downtown 5K and Festival of Miles
August 22, 2021
NEW DATE: Sunday morning, August 22, 2021
We’re making a one-time-only change and moving the TMC Night Run to Sunday morning, August 22nd. Register at https://runsignup.com/Race/AZ/Tucson/TMCMeetMeDowntown.
We can’t get a permit for a June race, but we’ve been given assurances that should be able to put on a good-sized event in August, with the start/finish in front of the Children’s Museum, live music and other festivities, plus our standard route through Downtown Tucson. Tucson’s premier running party will be a great way to wrap up summer!
This is the first-race of the three-race Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown. You can register for the GabeZ Series here: https://runsignup.com/Race/AZ/Tucson/GabeZimmermanTripleCrown
