Hello to our Run Tucson running and walking friends.

As we said in a previous email, we're not raising the registration fees for any of our remaining 2022 events.

While our prices are staying the same, we still have supply chain concerns, so items like shirts and medals must be ordered early. Thus, here are the remaining registration guarantees for giveaway items:

  • 78 guaranteed t-shirt registration slots remain

  • 143 guaranteed t-shirt and medal registration slots remain

  • 152 guaranteed t-shirt and coaster medal registration slots remain

  • 146 guaranteed t-shirt and coaster medal slots remain

In the meantime, if you're looking for something fun to do this weekend, you should join our friends at the Southern Arizona Roadrunners for theTucson 5000, a flat and fast 5k at Reid Park in Central Tucson. See www.runsar.org for all race information -- plus details on the SAR FitKidz event!

See you at the races!
