What is the Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown?
The three-race series commemorates Gabe Zimmerman, a Tucson native who lost his life in the January 2011 shooting here in Tucson. As we all know, running shows us the power within ourselves. If we can walk or run three miles in a hot summer night or get around the Saguaro loop, the ups and downs of daily life are certainly manageable. If we can climb A-Mountain, we can rise to our other challenges. Our goal is to celebrate Gabe and motivate the community to aspire to individual and collective greatness – to work alone and work with others towards those goals we find valuable. To celebrate living, community, and good will. To live with love, to live with passion to chase dreams.
What's different in 2017?
1) We've had to change the way we produce the TMC Saguaro race, so we're making a brand new Triple Crown 10k just for you -- the inaugural TMC Tucson 10k and 5k will be held on the morning of Sunday, September 17. We'll announce the TMC Tucson 10k race details soon!
2) We're making the BEYOND Foundation our GZTC beneficiary, offering $10 of every race entry to the Foundation established in honor of the victims of the 2011 murders.
$75 for all three races through March 31, then $99 through May 24th!
