About This Activity

TCCC is going virtual! Our first and foremost concern is your safety. Wherever you are this Thanksgiving, be part of this Thanksgiving tradition! We offer two course options for you this year. Option 1 is our traditional cross country course on grass and dirt. Unfortunately the hay-bales and water-jumps will not be on the course this year but with permission of Tucson Parks and Recreation, the course will be marked! The 5K course will be two loops and the 1.5 Mile course will be one loop. Course starts near Ramada #10 at the southwest corner of Reid Park, at 22nd Street and Country Club. Option 2 is for you to run the course of your choice. Run or walk your course between Saturday November 21st and Sunday November 29th. Post your results by midnight on Sunday, November 29th, for entry into the raffle drawings! 

T-SHIRTS Register by November 8, 2020, to be guaranteed a tee shirt. Registrations received after November 8th will be first come, first served. Quality cotton T-Shirts offered in women’s, men’s and youth sizes.  

RAFFLE PRIZES: Rather than giving awards to overall winners and age group winners, we are offering raffle prizes. For those participating in the 5K event, we will raffle a prize in each age group. Age groups are: 10 and under, 11-13, 14-16, 17-19, 20-24, 5 year divisions through age 79, and 80 and over. For those participating in the 1.5 Mile Fun Run, we will hold a raffle drawing for all participants. A finishers ribbon will be available for all participants. Raffle prizes include Brooks running shoes, "turkeys" as well as lots of other amazing prizes!

TEAM DIVISION: Let's keep the team spirit alive even if we aren't competing together! Sign up as a team and increase your odds of winning in the raffle. A separate raffle for team members will be offered. A team must consist of at least four people but will not have other constraints this year.

The race benefits Team Hoyt Arizona and Toys for Tots. Our support during these trying times is critical!
