Looking for motivation to exercise and stay fit?  We've got you covered with the 2024 edition of Tucson's popular 3-race series.  Build your fitness however you want, whether a 1-Mile, 5k, 4-Mile 10k, or Half-Marathon!  Join us for the Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown races, raising funds for local charities and celebrating the best of the Southwest!  
The three-race series commemorates Gabe Zimmerman, a Tucson native who lost his life in the January 2011 mass shooting here in Tucson.
Gabe and his dad, Ross, are shown in the photo on this page, during a hike in the Catalinas before he was killed. As we all know, running shows us the power within ourselves. If we can walk or run three miles ​on ​a hot summer night, the ups and downs of daily life are certainly manageable.  If we can climb A-Mountain, we can rise to our other challenges.  
Our goal is to celebrate Gabe and motivate the community to aspire to individual and collective greatness – to work alone and work with others towards those goals we find valuable. . . . to celebrate living, community, and good will . . . to live with love, to live with passion to chase dreams. 
The Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown is authorized by Ross Zimmerman and the Zimmerman family.  We at Run Tucson are honored to produce this series in Gabe's memory.
The Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown is supported by Tucson Medical Center, the title sponsor for each of the three races.  We are grateful to TMC's ongoing efforts to promote health and wellness in Southern Arizona and beyond.
Thank you: We lean heavily on The Running Shop. Not only do they provide gift certificates as part of age-group awards, but they've become the brick-and-mortar home for our shirts and medals. 


The BEYOND Foundation is our GZTC beneficiary, providing $10 of every race entry to the Foundation established in honor of the victims of the 2011 murders.  Thanks to the running community, BEYOND has received over $​50,000 that has been used on health and wellness programming here in Southern Arizona.
A note from Daniela Diamond, Executive Director of BEYOND: Thank you so much for your support of health and wellness with your gift to support the various programs of the Beyond Foundation. Your partnership is essential to ensure individuals have the support and resources needed to achieve their health goals. Because of you, our community is growing to be a stronger, more resilient place. Thank you!
