About This Activity

The Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown is a three-event series held in Tucson, Arizona to honor the life of Gabe Zimmerman, slain in the 2011 mass shooting that wounded Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.  Gabe was an avid runner who celebrated the Tucson region -- our three-race series in turn celebrates Gabe and the best of Tucson.

Triple Crown participants are registered for three separate runs or walks, of varying distances.  All ages and all abilities are welcome -- and you can walk or run 3.1 miles, one mile, 8 miles, or a half-marathon.

All registrants receive a special Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown "Run Tucson" technical shirt, as well as all the race shirts.  Plus, everyone who participates in all three events will receive a special Finisher's Award.

Ten dollars of every registration goes to Child and Family Resources, Gabe's favorite charity and a very important state-wide organization that helps children and families.
