Our 2017 Race Calendar

The Tucson Medical Center Catalina State Park “Split Endz” 5.2 & 10.35 Mile Trail Race and 5k Road Run & Walk
SEPTEMBER 24, 2017

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!

Important Race Information

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 23, 3pm to 6pm, only at Fleet Feet at 7301 E. Tanque Verde (do not go to the Oracle store!)
  • Saturday, September 24, 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.

Special Announcement!!!
NEW AMAZING COURSE
TMC Veterans Day Half Marathon & 5k
NOVEMBER 12, 2017

Event Details

For Veteran only discounts, please email everyoneruns@comcast.net

The Everyone Runs November 12 Tucson Medical Center Veterans Day Half Marathon and 5k has found a new home. It will unquestionably be Tucson’s premier and most beautiful course, running in the majestic Tucson Mountain Park starting & finishing at Old Tucson!

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. With the beauty of this area, nice roads, and hardly a building or home in site, this will be the Fall half marathon and 5k that you’ll want to run. The sign-up link is just to your right.

Your half marathon will start at Old Tucson (same start line as July 9 Run with the Roosters Kinney Rd. 5 Miler). 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 approximately 1.5 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 below, this course features many hills and steady grades, but that means there are fast downhills, too! Click on this map for the full view.

This course will be USATF certified!
