Description

2025 ~STAY TUNED FOR BIG CHANGES

Wave Starts

The event will use "wave" starts beginning with slower teams at 7:00 a.m. and progressing to faster teams starting at 10:00 a.m. This allows all teams to finish in time to enjoy the band, food and fun. 

Wave 1 - 0700

Wave 2 - 0800

Wave 3 - 1000

There is nothing else like it in Tucson~a running relay on The Loop. 

 
What's the "Loop"?

The Chuck Huckelberry Loop is 120+ miles of paved, shared-use paths that connect the Rillito, Santa Cruz, and Pantano River Parks with the Julian Wash and Harrison Road Greenways. The RunAround Tucson will use nearly 55 miles of the Loop.  View the map to see the event's course.

How Does the Relay Work?

This is a supported relay race with Nine Exchanges (ten running legs (11 if using the "unofficial exchange on Leg 6")).

The relay Starts and Finishes at Rillito Park.  Distances between the Exchanges vary from 3.68 miles to 8.61 miles.

2025 Exchange Legs - TBD

 

What Constitutes a "Team"?

The minimum number allowed on a team is two, and the maximum number is ten (or eleven if you are using the unoffiicial exhange on Leg 6).

Teammate One starts from Rillito Park and runs west to Exchange 1, where he/she will check in with the Event Time Keeper, and then hand off to Teammate Two to begin his/her run to Exchange 2, and so forth. You MUST check in at every Exchange, even if you have less than 10 runners on a team. If your team does not check in at every Exchange, your team will be considered a DNF and will be ineligible of a team award. This does not include the Ultra Loopy Runners, who only have to check in at Exchange 6. 

CUTOFFS

All teams must be done and off the course by 6:30 p.m. (You have 11.5 hours to complete the course. That's an average of 12:30 minutes per mile.)

All Teams must arrive at Exchange 5 (TBD) no later than 1:15 p.m. 

All Teams must arrive at Exchange 8 (TBD) no later than 4:30 p.m.

Each team is responsible for getting their teammates to the Exchanges and back to the Start/Finish line to celebrate.
