Athletic Events

Throughout the year, the Tucson J hosts athletic events for people of all ages and fitness levels! 

Fun Runs for everyone!

Our fun runs have 1K, 5K, and 10K routes, and take runners on the Rillito River Path. Most of the course is on asphalt with the exception of some dirt to access the path and to get back into the J Sculpture Garden for the finish. One set of stairs needs to be ascended to get up to Alvernon; however, this can be bypassed with a lengthier detour out to Paradise Falls Dr and up to Alvernon from there.

Sundays @9:00 am – 9:45 am
