Tucson Marathon Family Fitness Fest, Dec. 8

Sponsored by the Canyon Ranch Center for Prevention & Health Promotion

The Tucson Marathon Family Fitness Fest is Saturday, December 8th from 8 a.m. to noon on the University of Arizona Mall. The 5K and 1K course takes runners of all ages and abilities around the Mall. This is a very safe, flat and fast course, perfect for families and friends to run together. Every child will receive a finishers medal and t-shirt.

The 1 Mile race was created in 2010 to encourage school age children to get outside and move. Working with the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health at the University of Arizona, the Tucson Marathon Fitness Fest is engaging with 160 Tucson area schools to deliver a four-month running and physical fitness training program, culminating with running the 1 Mile. The 1 Mile is appropriate for runners and walkers of all ages. Families are encouraged to participate with their kids and everyone is welcome.

Admission is $15 for the 1 Mile race and $25 for the 5K. Visit www.tucsonmarathon.com to register. The first 500 participants registered for the 1 Mile race are free! Use coupon code “OneMile” when registering (limited to three people per registration cart).
