Two reasons why we might need ai after all:

I misspelled Pueblo Vida Brewing in the previous email. We're super-psyched to have Downtown's own Pueblo Vida Brewing on hand as the official beverage of the TMC Night Run Beer Garden -- see

Plus the main stage band at the TMC Night Run is named "Blondie All Over" -- see info on them here!

If you see something else I missed, let me know!

Your favorite event is coming up, so get on the phone, send a snap, or forward this email to your favorite people -- and make a team for Tucson's most popular running and walking event!

The May 27th TMC Meet Me Downtown 5k Night Run/Walk and Festival of Miles is a few short weeks away. Pricing is a mere $40 for adults in the 5k, with each member of team of 5 or more receiving a $5 discount.

See below for details on 5k pricing, the free youth and children's events, the Team FAQ, and a list of current team registrants.

By the way, as you'll no doubt tell, this email is not generated by ai!

Team FAQ
Q: How do I sign up for a 5k team?
A: You can go to this easy online registration link and register for the TMC Meet Me Downtown 5k -- you'll see a link to "Join a Team". You can follow links to either "Create New Group/Team" or "Join an Existing Team." If you are joining an existing team, you can see the list of teams on the menu. Should be easy-peasy . . . 

Q: How many do I need to get the team discount for the 5k?
A: Five. In terms of pricing, as soon as five people sign up on your team, the registration platform system will give $5 credit to the first four registrants and then provide the current team pricing discount to all newly registered team members. 

Q: How do I sign up for a team for the Saturday Night Festival of Miles?
A: You can follow the same "Join a Team" directions to create or join an existing team.

Q: Do we have to race this thing?
A: NO! The idea is to get friends and family and co-workers together to exercise and have fun. You can walk or stroll or jog or run -- just have fun!

Q: If we do want to race, can we win prizes?
A: Yes, the fastest women's team wins $300 and the fastest men's team wins $300. We use traditional cross country scoring so that your 5 fastest team members count towards the team. You can divvy up the prize money however you want.

Q: Are there other team prizes?
A: The team with the most registrants receives a $150 gift card to use at Hotel Congress -- so you can snag food at The Cup or drinks at the bar -- it's up to you!

Q: What if we're not fast and there's not a lot of us?
A: Fear not -- you can win too! Every single team is entered into a raffle for a $150 gift card to Hotel Congress

Q: Does everyone on the team get free beer and the race shirt?
A: Of course! Wait, that's not true: you have to be at least 21 years old to receive the free beer . . . 

Q: Do we all need to wear the same uniform?
A: Gosh no! Just get some friends and have fun exercising together!

Q: If I want to sign up for the 3-race series, the Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown, can I still join my team?
A: Yes, in the online-registration platform for the GZTC

Q: What are the charities for this event?
