"The Everyone Runs November 14 Tucson Medical Center Veterans Day Half Marathon and 5k is unquestionably Tucson’s premier and most beautiful course running in the majestic Tucson Mountain Park! You’ll want to make this Fall half marathon your goal race for the season and plan it as a part of your training as the course will be challenging for sure. With the beauty of this area, and hardly a building or home in sight, plus excellent roads, this race is the one you’ll want to run."
Your half marathon will start at Old Tucson 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.
This course features many hills and steady grades, but that means there are fast downhills, too!
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.
Medals only for all half marathon participants
5-year age group awards in the half and 5k.
Half marathon course support through 10:45am (3:30 time limit). A part of proceeds from this event will benefit local veteran community groups.
