About This Activity

Registration is now closed for the 2014 TMC Saguaro National Park Labor Day Run, to be held on Labor Day Monday, September 1, 2014  Please run with us in 2015!

This scenic course and the post-race festivities truly embrace the spirit of the old Southwest, making the 45th Saguaro National Park Labor Day Run a regional favorite. Our rolling 8-mile and 5k courses loop through a cactus forest in the foothills of the scenic Rincon Mountains at Saguaro National Park East. This event has been featured as a Runner’s World Race of the Month. Prize money, age group awards, and nifty super-cool t-shirt. The 8-miler is the RRCA Arizona State Championship and is part of The Running Shop Grand Prix, produced by SAR.  The Saguaro Labor Day Run is the second leg of the 2014 Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown.
