Congrats! You’ve decided to run your first (or 50th!) 5K in Tucson!
Tucson is a marvelous place to run because we have balmy, beautiful weather from October through May. Even when the temperatures rise in June through September, you can still squeeze in runs in the wee morning hours or in the evenings after the sun sets.
Put together your training plan, pick a race, and you’ll be well on your way!
Scroll down for a full list of 5Ks in Tucson. This list includes: mud runs, color runs, ragnar relays, trail runs, 5K fundraisers, holiday races, social runs, and events that combine walking & running.
Note that we have also included races with similar distances that you might be interested in: 4-milers, 8Ks, quarter marathons, children’s races of various distances, etc.
Hope to see you hitting the pavement in Tucson this year!
