Tucson, AZ - Saguaro National Park, Friends of Saguaro and Southern Arizona Roadrunners are teaming up again for a FREE, non-competitive social walk/run event in the park's Tucson Mountain (West) District, from 8:30am to 10:30am, as part of the BEYOND: * Commemorate * Celebrate * Commit, event on Saturday, January 10, 2015.
This year, participants have a choice between a 4-mile or a 1-mile course along the Bajada Loop Drive in Saguaro National Park's Tucson Mountain District (west).Both will include rolling dirt roads and plenty of gorgeous National Park scenery. Runners and walkers of all ages and abilities are invited to this free event. Strollers are allowed, but the road is very sandy so if you bring a stroller, oversize wheels are strongly recommended (regular stroller wheels just won't cut it).
The run will not be officially timed and there will be no awards or posted results but participants must register in advance. This event is limited to 400 participants and registration details can be found at www.beyond-tucson.org.
BEYOND: * Commemorate * Celebrate * Commitcommemorates those we lost on January 8, 2011, celebrates the spirit of togetherness we felt in the days and months following the tragedy, and recommits ourselves to building a stronger, healthier future. On this fourth anniversary, there will be opportunities to walk, hike, run, stroll, be artistic, learn new skills, and generally come together as a community across the Greater Tucson region.
