If you are running over 15 miles a week, or can run at least 45 minutes comfortably, give the half marathon program a try! Contact Tia Accetta, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have questions about whether or not this training program is right for you.
KICK OFF Event: Wednesday, Aug. 31, 5:30-7:00 PM

If the GMT training group doesn't fit your needs...
Meet Me at Maynard's offers free social training runs beginning on Monday, September 12. Be ready to run (or walk) at 5:45 pm—meet at Meet Me at Maynard’s, 400 North Toole. The route is almost exactly 6.2 miles—we’ll start at Maynard’s and go straight west on Congress, then up and down A-Mountain, and back along Congress to the finish at Maynard’s. You can go farther or shorter as you wish.
We want to thank a host of community partners for help with this event, including our title sponsor, Tucson Medical Center. Without TMC’s support, we could not produce such a large event. We urge all runners and walkers to patronize our sponsors and partners:
Interested in being a sponsor? Contact Race Director Randy Accetta. It’s expensive to put on a race Downtown, and we’re looking for course sponsors, t-shirt sponsors, and post-event sponsors. Join the healthiest community in Arizona!
Proceeds from the event will fund a host of local charities, including Cox Charities and Child and Family Resources, as well as Reid Park Zoo, Team Hoyt Arizona, and the Southern Arizona Roadrunners.
