TMC sponsors upcoming Mount Lemmon Marathon

Mount_Lemmon_MarathonTucson Medical Center is the presenting sponsor of the Mount Lemmon Marathon, slated to kick off April 28.

The event, which is offering full and half marathons, as well as a 10K race, is considered to be one of the toughest road marathons in the world.

With course climbs as high as 8200’, the marathon is hosted in the beautiful Santa Catalina Mountains and finishes in the town of Summerhaven.

The Mount Lemmon Marathon is sure to be well attended, being hosted during these early spring months, with cool weather and clear skies to help participants through the challenge.

Runners of all levels and ages should come out to either either watch, compete or participate recreationally.  Awards will be given out during an official awards ceremony in categories ranging from 16 to 80+ years of age.

Being that TMC is sponsoring the event, they are also the hub for transportation to and from the race grounds. Buses will start leaving from TMC parking lots at 3:30 am on race day, and it’s suggested not waiting until the last bus as space is not guaranteed.

Registration is still open and costs range from $50 to $95, dependent upon the race.

All proceeds of the race benefits the Beat Cancer Boot Camp, a fitness-based support program created to help survivors stay active during cancer treatment.
