Tucson, AZ, September 1, 2014 – The Holualoa Tucson Marathon, in its 21st year, introduces four new challenging events for all ages and abilities.  The popular marathon is considered one of the fastest Boston qualifiers in the country. The new events challenge runners to run two of the ten events.

Saturday, December 6th – 4th Annual Tucson Marathon Family Fitness Fest

A great event for the whole family, the Tucson Marathon Family Fitness Fest will be held on The University of Arizona campus Mall on Saturday, December 6.  Running events will include a 10K, 5K and 1 Mile run.  The 10K and 5K is for runners of all abilities, including walkers and wheelchairs.

For those who are ready for more than a half marathon but not ready for the full marathon, The Fiesta Challenge is a combination of the 5K on Saturday and the Half Marathon on Sunday. The toughest event this year is the new Saguaro Challenge.  These runners will tackle the 10K on Saturday and come back on Sunday to run the full marathon. Kids and families can do the Wildcat Challenge at the Family Fitness Fest and run the 1 Mile and 5K or the 1 Mile and 10K. 

The 1 Mile event was created in 2010 to encourage school age children to get outside and move.  This year, kids can choose between a competitive 1 Mile or a 1 Mile obstacle course featuring giant inflatable obstacles on the course.

Working with the College of Public Health at the University of Arizona, the Tucson Marathon Family Fitness Fest is engaging with local schools and youth and family programs to deliver resources and education for family fitness, 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. 

Sunday, December 8th - Marathon, Marathon Relay and Half Marathon

The Holualoa Tucson Marathon, Marathon Relay, and Damascus Bakeries Half Marathon will be held on Sunday, December 7.  The Old West historical town of Oracle marks the start line of all three events. The course winds through the desert on paved roads and finishes at the Catalina Fire Department. 

The half marathon is one of the fastest point-to-point courses in the country.  The course will start on the Biosphere Road approximately ½ mile outside the Biosphere 2 gates.  The half marathon follows the last 13.1 miles of the marathon course.  Both courses are scenic, fast, mostly downhill and certified by USATF.  All three events tailor to runners of all abilities, from walkers to elites.
