The Catalina State Park “Split Endz” 5.2 & 10.35 Mile
Trail Race and 5k Road Run & Walk
SEPTEMBER 23, 2018

Event Details

September means the April course in reverse, but this year we're adding a 5k road run & walk on the park's paved roads. All feature those same spectacular mountain views! Your three trail course starts at the Catalina State Park trailhead and starts with the Birding Trail (counterclockwise), then off to the Canyon Loop (counterclockwise) and then to the Nature Trail (counterclockwise). This time you get to go down the “92 Stair Climb” and still up and down a bunch of stairs on the Birding Trail! Terrain consists of desert mountain trails and creeks, all with mostly moderate climbs and descents. Elevation ranges from 2799 to 3008 feet. 10.3 miler open only to runners. Course support until 9:30 a.m. Awards for overall and 5-year age groups for all three events, our famous free Mexican breakfast, free photos and finisher tech shirts!

Packet pick-up and late registration details (cash or check only for new registrants):

We strongly ask that, unless you are traveling to Tucson on race day, you please pick-up your packet on Friday or Saturday at Fleet Feet (see right below for locations and specific times). For those of you with special circumstances, we will have your number available on race morning from 5:00 a.m. to 6:20 a.m. Friends and family can pick-up your number.

  • Friday, September 22, 3pm to 6pm, only at Fleet Feet at 7301 E. Tanque Verde (do not go to the Oracle store!)
  • Saturday, September 23, 10am to 4pm, only at Fleet Feet at 7607 N. Oracle Rd. (do not go to the Tanque Verde store!)

Catalina State Park Entry:

On-site parking is limited to 115 cars in designated spots only. Carpooling is suggested and encouraged. No parking on the park roads. Park entry fee is $7 per car. Very important: when you are driving into the park please stay as far left as possible so that our shuttle pass can easily pass on your right when incoming traffic is stopped at the pay booth.

Shuttle bus information: park entry is free on the bus!

Everyone Runs will provide a quick and easy free shuttle bus from the Oro Valley Market Place shopping center, directly across the street from the Catalina State Park entrance. The bus will pick-up & return to the south end parking area by Red Lobster, which is to your right when you turn in off of Oracle Rd. The bus will leave at 4:50 a.m. 5:10 a.m., 5:30 a.m., 5:50 a.m., 6:10 a.m. and 6:25 a.m. if necessary. Everyone entered in the 10 miler and 5k should do their best to avoid taking the 6:10 a.m. shuttle. We cannot be responsible for getting you to the race on time. DO NOT take the last shuttle if you are in the 10 or 5k (your race starts at 6:30a.m.) or you plan on race-day packet pick-up or registration. If you miss the last bus, or there is no room for you on that bus, you are on your own to get to the start line on-time. We will start this race promptly at 6:30 (10 & 5k) and 6:50 (5 miler). The bus will also provide return trips near the finish line as the race concludes.

This race is chip timed. Your race timing chip will only be available on race morning at our white tents near the picnic area at the end of the parking lot.

Switching event distance: if you want to switch your race distance, you must email the race director by Friday, September 23, to everyoneruns@comcast.net. Switching distances during the race causes extreme problems with providing accurate results and delays our ability to post them in a timely fashion. If you switch distances during the trail race (typically 10 miler to 5 miler) your time will not count for any awards.

The TMC Veterans Day Half Marathon & 5K at Old Tucson

The TMC Veterans Day Half Marathon & 5K at Old Tucson Tucson Mountain Park
Register Online

Event Details

Welcome to the 14th edition of the Everyone Runs TMC Veterans Day Half Marathon & 5k, unquestionably Tucson’s premier and most beautiful course running in the majestic Tucson Mountain Park!

You’ll want to make this Fall half marathon your goal race for the season and plan it as a part of your training, as the course will be challenging for sure. With the beauty of this area, and hardly a building or home in-site, plus excellent roads, this race is the one you’ll want to run.

Your half marathon will start at Old Tucson (same start line as Run with the Roosters Kinney Rd. 5 Miler) and the course will travel north on Kinney Rd, passing the Desert Museum and then heading west to your turnaround at Sandario Rd. On your return, you will run about 3-miles and then head southeast on McCain Loop Rd. where the magnificent cactus and tree lined Tucson Mountain Park will open-up to you in full glory! At the end of McCain Loop, you will head back on Kinney Rd to your finish at Old Tucson.

Yes, as you will see in our map, this course features many hills and steady grades, but that means there are fast downhills, too! HALF MARATHON MAP: http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/1456090306 5K MAP: http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/1456090306

The half marathon will only be open to runners and run & walkers. Walkers will be accepted in the 5k, but not the half. The 5k course will be just as beautiful and is a simple out & back on Kinney Rd.

We will even be featuring a stroller division for the 5k with 1st, 2nd & 3rd place overall awards (no age groups on this one).

Half marathon course support through 10:45 a.m. (3:30 time limit). A part of proceeds from this event will benefit local community groups and Veterans assistance organizations.

If you are a veteran or active duty, please email us at everyoneruns@comcast.net for your online registration discount code.

Please come join the fun!!!
