* TMC 15k.  We've crafted a beautiful 9.3 mile race that includes Biosphere Road and Biosphere 2 property that guests don't normally get to see. 


* Biosphere 2 5k Run/Walk: Our 5k has partnered with the previously-cancelled EarthDay 5k, and will be a hilly road course on the grounds of the Biosphere 2.


* Cox Family Mile, a SAR FitKidz event: our free family one mile will cover an out and back on the grounds of Biosphere 2.


Beneficiaries: Thanks to TMC, COX, and the generosity of race participants, over $15,000 will be distributed from this race to our non-profit friends: The Biosphere 2, Step up to Justice, Team Hoyt Arizona, the BEYOND-Tucson Foundation, and the Southern Arizona Roadrunners.


We will use this race page, email, and social media channels to provide updated information as we learn more.  For questions or to offer suggestions, contact Randy at [email protected]
