TMC Get Moving Tucson Half Marathon, 5k & Family Mile:

The TMC Get Moving Tucson Half Marathon and 4 miler will again take place on the west side of Tucson's Downtown district, at the Mercado Annex (https://mercadodistrict.com/annex).

Three distances to choose from:

• TMC A-Mountain Half Marathon - We've crafted a beautiful 13.1 mile course that loops up and down A-Mountain and does an out-and-back on the speedy Santa Cruz Riverpath.  The start and finish lines will most likely be on Cushing St, at the Mercado Annex.

• TMC A-Mountain Four-Mile Run/Walk - Instead of a 5K this year, we think it would be fun to do a 4-miler up and down A-Mountain. This scenic route is designed for walkers and runners of all ages and abilities!

• Cox Free Family Mile and SAR Free FitKidz - Our free family one mile will cover an out and back along Cushing and Grande!

In partnership with the super-cool 23 Miles of Mexican Food Festival that takes place after the race and with the Southern Arizona Roadrunners. Music and discounted beer at Westbound after the race.
