TMC Veterans Day Half Marathon & 5K at Old Tucson
November 11, 2018 @ 7:15 am - 10:45 am$35 – $70
Welcome to the 14th edition of the Everyone Runs TMC Veterans Day Half Marathon & 5k, “unquestionably Tucson’s premier and most beautiful course running in the majestic Tucson Mountain Park!”
Your half marathon will start at Old Tucson (same start line as Run with the Roosters Kinney Rd. 5 Miler) and the course will travel north on Kinney Rd, passing the Desert Museum and then heading west to your turnaround at Sandario Rd. On your return, you will run about 3-miles and then head southeast on McCain Loop Rd. where the magnificent cactus and tree lined Tucson Mountain Park will open-up to you in full glory! At the end of McCain Loop, you will head back on Kinney Rd to your finish at Old Tucson.
Yes, as you will see in our map, this course features many hills and steady grades, but that means there are fast downhills, too! HALF MARATHON MAP: http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/1456090306 5K MAP: https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/1805167928
The half marathon will only be open to runners and run & walkers. Walkers will be accepted in the 5k, but not the half. The 5k course will be just as beautiful and is a simple out & back on Kinney Rd.
There will even be featuring a stroller division for the 5k with 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place overall awards (no age groups on this one).
A part of proceeds from this event will benefit local community groups and Veterans assistance organizations.
