Hello again to all of our registrants for the TMC Sunrise at Old Tucson Trail Run.   Thanks for being part of one of my favorite races of all time!  As you may have guessed from all my emails, I love this race -- I love the cowboy mythology, I love the scenery, and I love the terrain.  On top of all that, I am very glad that we get to celebrate all three of Tucson's great west side tourism attractions.

Below are all the details you need, while a list of registrants is below the maps.  If I've missed something, please let me know and I'll try to fill in the blanks.

We're busy putting final touches on the event, but if you need anything else, shoot me an email and I'll try to get it taken care of.

if anyone wants to volunteer, we can always use some course marshals to direct runners!  You can email Tia at tia@runtucson.net . . .

And don't forget that SAR is hosting its annual celebration on Sunday night at Gentle Ben's near the UA.  Details are farther below -- this is for everyone, so come on down!

See you this weekend

  Lil' Pardners Free Kids Dash
This is meant to be a playful dash, with no prizes and no timing.  Bring your little ones to the finish line at the Bitter Creek set at about 9:30 and we'll set up a low-key route around the High Chaparral set.
 
Starting Line, Finish Line, and Bathrooms
The starting line for the women's race, the men's race, and the 1-mile walk/run are all on Main Street near the Palace Hotel.  The finish line for each course is at the Bitter Creek set, to the east of Main Street.  There are many gender-specific bathroom facilities throughout Old Tucson, along Main Street and near the Bitter Creek set.
 
Ham Radio, Water Stop, Boy Scouts, and more
Thanks to the Tucson Ham Radio Society, we will have Ham Radio Support on the route. Thanks to Drexel Fire Department for providing a stand-by ambulance on site. Thanks to Boy Scout Troop 431 from Fort Huachuca for being our water station volunteers.  The water station is a bit beyond the 3-mile mark, at the Bitter Creek set.  There are also water fountains throughout Old Tucson Studios.

Route
4-Milers: you will start on Main Street, then do one big loop through town, past the Rodeo Grounds, past the finish line and the High Chaparral set, then back through the back lot of Old Tucson past the old Church and Boothill Cemetery.  After leaving town, you will head into the desert for a well-marked two mile loop that includes single track, horse trails, washes, and dirt roads.  Look for the orange and red flagging.  The 3-mile mark is at the Bitter Creek set.  From here, you have the final lap through town and back to the finish. 

The course will be marked by knee-high orange and red flags.


Suggestions: It's a trail run, so keep your eyes up, watch for cactus, watch for directions, be willing to sacrifice speed for safety and course accuracy.

One Milers: You will do roughly a lap and a half of the town loop.  You'll start with the men's mile and do one full loop, then on the second loop, you will turn left at the Rodeo Grounds to the finish line.  If you head out into the desert, you are on the four-mile loop.  Don't do that.
One Miler:  Loop and a Half.  Green is start, red is finish.
