First stage of the Triple Crown is here!
From the Southern Arizona Roadrunners Website:
Lace up your sneakers for the biggest running event in Tucson, the 10th Annual TMC Meet Me Downtown 5k Night Run and Walk. The 2016 version will be the biggest and bet yet, and with more than $4,000 in prize money some of the best runners in the country will be hand. Known as MMD (#MMD), the race has morphed into a city-wide block party, with a free beer garden hosted by beneficiary the Junior League of Tucson; 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.
Something for everyone:
To promote family exercise of all ages and abilities, MMD focuses on family-friendly activities, including a free FitKidz One Mile Walk/Run, kids activities hosted by TMC, and free entry into race beneficiary the Children's Museum. All participants receive a free t-shirt with our unique Tucson-flavored artwork.
To promote fun and frivolity, MMD features a beer garden, rock n' roll band and after-party.
To promote leg speed, MMD features a flat course, thousands of dollars in prize money, and great age group awards.
