The Tucson Marathon Family Fitness will be held on The University of Arizona campus Mall on December 7.
Running events will include a 10K, 5K and 1 Mile run. The 10K and 5K are for runners of all abilities, including walkers and wheelchairs, while the 1 Mile run is geared toward children. The 5K starts at 8:30 a.m., followed by the 1 Mile Run/Walk at 9:45 a.m., and the 10K at 10:30 a.m.
Registration will open at 7:30 a.m. on race day on the University of Arizona mall.
The 1 Mile event was created in 2010 to encourage school age children to get outside and move, though the 1 Mile is appropriate for runners and walkers of all ages. Families are encouraged to participate with their kids.
All children who complete the 1 Mile event will receive a racing bib, t-shirt and finisher’s medal. The 1 Mile, 5K and 10K events are all run on the University of Arizona mall, a flat, fast and safe course.
