Every year when we put on the TMC Sunrise at Old Tucson Trail Run, I feel like a kid again – dashing through the horsepoop and pretending to be a cowboy is such a great way to spend a day!
Thank you for being part of the race this year. Almost 900 of you registered for the event – 200 more than last year. For a small-time local race,that’s a pretty good jump in participants. Please accept our deep appreciation.
And to all of you who came from 26 different states (plus Canada and Mexico!), please come back and run with us in Tucson . . .
Special thanks to the folks at Old Tucson Studios for letting us run on their trails and hang out afterwards!
Below is a race report (including a discount to the June 1st TMC Meet Me Downtown). If you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

, which includes the TMC Meet Me Downtown Night Run and the September 16 TMC Tucson 10k and the October 27 TMC A-Mountain Half-Marathon.
3) As well, we’ve been asked by the Grand Canyon Chamber of Commerce to produce a trail half-marathon on National Forest lands at the Grand Canyon on November 1
. We’ll let you know more about that in the coming weeks.
Now, on to the race, with details on results, awards, leftovers, volunteers, and more.
We have taken the few remaining leftover shirts and medallions to The Running Shop by Tuesday. Most of the sizes remaining are women' small, but please feel free to swing by The Running Shop at 3055 North Campbell to pick up any remainders.
We are always grateful to Sharon Bart and the gang at The Running Shop for supporting local running – so if you get a chance, take a moment to look for some cool running things to buy!

place finisher Claire Hans over the last loop through town. All three runners train with The Workout Group, so it was a clean sweep for the WOG Ladies.
