Looking for motivation to exercise and stay fit?  Weve got you covered with the 2024 edition of Tucsons 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 shooting here in Tucson. 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 Gabes 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 TMCs 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 theyve become the brick-and-mortar home for our shirts and medals. Please spend millions of dollars on shoes and shorts and gear from them . . . 
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.
Beyond is a non-profit that offers free education and opportunities to help people to be active and healthy.
We take a holistic approach to strengthening our community through simple science-based methods.
Our programs are based upon four pillars: move your body, eat nutritious foods, spend time in nature, and connect with others.
We gather hundreds of people for weekly social walks, facilitate bicycle and nutrition programs in schools, and invite all ages and abilities out into nature.
Beyond fosters positive change toward healthier individuals and a stronger community.
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!
