Race Report for TMC Meet Me Downtown VIRTUAL 5k and One Mile 2020

June 10 Update: Well, if it’s not one thing, it’s another. As we write this, our beloved Catalina Mountains are on fire, with crews working heroically to contain the flames. We hope that all of our running community friends are safe. Speaking of safety, you can see the Southern Arizona Roadrunners Facebook page for helpful health updates.

Now, back to the Virtual TMC Meet Me Downtown 5k.

We wish we could have thrown a big ol’ running party for, but we sure got to see a lot of you when you came by The Running Shop and Hotel Congress to snag your goodie bags. Thanks, too, to those of you who participated from afar, including a runner from Latvia!

Below that you’ll find information on the results, the raffle winners, the donations, and how to pick up your goodies if you haven’t received ’em yet.
Thanks again,
Randy and Tia Accetta

You can find the TMC Meet Me Downtown results here. The virtual event is non-competitive and all results are self-reported. If you did the virtual run but have not yet reported your results, you can submit your results to the google doc , and we’ll update the results later in June. Grand Prix Update: Please note that SAR will provide all SAR members credit towards SAR’s 2020 Running Shop Grand Prix. See the updated SAR Running Shop Grand Prix details here.
1) Local In-Person Pickup: Many of you were able to come to The Running Shop or Hotel Congress to get your final goodies for the events. If you’re one of the 30 locals who did not pick up your items, you can pick ’em up through the end of June at The Running Shop (3055 North Campbell). 2) Out-of-Town: We’ve mailed all the out-of-town packets, so be sure to check your mail for an exciting “Run Tucson” mailer.
