Tucson Marathon - Oro Valley Race Description

Turning the Page after the 50th Running

FIRST OFF, We offer you our sincere apologies for the course error that occurred during the full marathon in December 2021.

While most runners experienced a smooth race, several of those in the front groups were led off course and ran extra distance during the event. Details of the misdirection remain unclear and We understand that this was a critical error for everyone attempting to achieve their best performance. We are deeply committed to improving our approach going forward and hope you will return and continue to support us.”

Moving forward here is a partial list of 2022 Event improvements:
– NEW Image and Logo
– NEW USATF certified course
– NEW Finish Line Steampump Ranch Oro Valley
– RRCA State Championship event for Marathon and Raod 50K
– NEW Afterparty Steampump Ranch

Thank You for Your Service

We want to recognize and thank our men and women in uniform. If you have served in the U.S. military, please take advantage of our discount policy.

As a thank you to our men and women in uniform we offer a 30% discount into the Full and Half Marathon, and 50K races. Please send an email with a photo of your official ID to info@tucsonmarathonorovalley.com to get your coupon code. (There is no direct link for that email in order to cut down on SPAM.)

This offer is limited to anyone with a current, valid United States military ID or DD214 (or the new driver’s license with the “Veteran” designation). That can mean husbands, wives or children under 21. While veterans are eligible for the discount, their immediate families are not. Please note that if you are working for the DoD as an employee or contractor, unfortunately, you are not eligible for the discount. Only active-duty members of the US military and their families, as well as veterans, are eligible. Anyone using the military discount without a military ID or DD214, or new “Veteran” AZ driver’s license, will not be able to pick up their bib, will forfeit all fees, and will be banned from any future races.

You MUST show a valid military ID or a copy of your DD214 (or the new AZ driver’s license, or other official state-issued ID, with the “Veteran” designation) in order to pick up your bib. You must pick up your packet in person–someone else may not pick it up for you. In order to preserve the integrity of this discount, we will not release a military discounted bib without the proper ID.

If any active duty service member registers and subsequently receives orders that prevent them from attending the race, we will refund your registration fees 100% (Proof of deployment required) Registrations that use the military discount cannot be transferred or sold, but are subject to our normal refund and deferment policy for reasons other than deployment.

Thank you for serving!
If you have questions about the military discount, please send an email to us at: info@tucsonmarathonorovalley.com

Good PR/BQ Option

One of the only fast races in early December, and it's pretty cheap. Also, a Saturday race, which I find to be easier for travel and gives me Saturday night for beer and all day Sunday for recovery. The race starts up in the mountain town of Oracle and finishes in the Oro Valley area, so not near downtown Tucson. One great feature - they let you stay warm inside the busses until a few minutes prior to start. First 10 miles or so are scenic and there is some shade, but after 13, you're just running out on the highway. Temperature was ideal, but there is no shade after mile 11 or so. Good organization, actually had a young volunteer come up to me with my drop bag just after crossing the finish line. Overall solid option to seek out a PR/BQ, and Tucson is a very fun town.
