We’ve read your surveys and we’ve added a Friday night component to the city’s most popular running event. So mark your calendar for the best running weekend in Tucson’s 240 year official history . . . .
Friday Night, May 27th: Friday Night Festival of Miles, including the Free FitKidz Mile, the first-ever Tucson Tutu Mile, and 7 other categories. This is the RRCA Arizona State Mile Championship, with awards to Open, Masters, Grand-Masters, and Super Grand Masters,
Saturday Night, May 28th: TMC Meet Me Downtown 5k Night Run and Walk, including the RRCA West Regional Championships with thousands of dollars in prize money.
Known as MMD (#meetmedowntown5k), the race has become a city-wide block party, with a free beer garden, a free concert headlined by LeeAnne Savage, five bands along the route, and an after-party on the patio of Tucson’s iconic Hotel Congress. This race, the first leg of the popular 2016 Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown, has raised more than $130,000 for local charities over the years.
