Event Description:

Looking for motivation to exercise and stay fit?  We’ve got you covered with Tucson’s popular 3-race series. Build your fitness from 1-Mile, to 5k, to 10k & longer, and join us for the GabeZ Triple Crown races, raising funds for local charities and celebrating the best of the Southwest!

Easy online registration lets you mark which races you will do in person or which you will do virtually. Run in person or virtually and get these awesome benefits:


The BEYOND Foundation is our GZTC beneficiary, providing $10 of every race entry to the Foundation established in honor of the victims of the 2011 murders.  Thanks to the running community, BEYOND has received over $30,000 that has been used on health and wellness programming here in Southern Arizona.

In-Town Crown: If you live in the Tucson area but have to miss a race, simply run or walk the race distance at some point, then post a photo of your run on social media – tag @RUNTUCSON and @RunSAR – or you can email us a photo if you don’t have Instagram or Facebook. Then visit The Running Shop at 3055 North Campbell Avenue during their regular business hours to pick up your race shirt and GZTC souvenir.  All souvenirs must be picked up within 30 days of the event; after 30 days, they will be donated to charity.

Out-of-Town Crown: If you don’t live in Tucson but still want to participate, we’ve got you covered!  Run or walk, then post a photo of your run on social media – tag @RUNTUCSON and @RunSAR – or you can email us a photo if you don’t have Instagram or Facebook. We’ll mail the race materials directly to you!
