Due to safety requirements, there will once again be a ‘wave’ start for the 2016 Damascus Bakeries Half Marathon. (Participants will receive both a “chip time” and “gun time” after finishing the event. Anyone attempting to win the Tucson Half-Marathon should opt for the first corral as winners times will be based on “gun time” only.)
