    Dec. 27 Update: Click here for the most recent email to all race participants, with maps of course, photos of mile markers, and directions for the Virtual reporting.

    Due to the upward spiral in local and national COVID cases, both the City of Tucson and Pima County are denying permits for special events on City or County property. Thus, we will move this to a virtual event.  We will mark the course, starting and ending at Udall Park, so that you can still run the official HOTD 8K or 1 mile route, or you can run a route of your choice.  You can upload your results at any time between Friday, January 1-Sunday, January 3, 2021.  The first 175 registrants will receive a race number and special doggy-themed buff. All finishers are eligible for a series of raffle prizes from our race sponsor, Fleet Feet Tucson.

    Goodies and Discounts for All Participants:

    • Super-cute, doggie-themed, running buff face covering (first-come, first-served)
    • Souvenir race number

    • Fleet Feet: 10% off any Fleet Feet purchase through February 28, 2021
    • All finishers eligible for Fleet Feet gift cards
