'Meet Me at Maynards' celebrates 200th walk/run

TUCSON - Meet Me at Maynards, the weekly free social walk/run in downtown Tucson, will celebrate its 200th consecutive Monday on February 4th, 2013.

Meet Me at Maynards(MMM) began in 2009 with a small group of volunteers. The event grew each week and quickly becoming a fixture in downtown Tucson. After outgrowing the patio space at Maynards Market and Kitchen, 400 to 600 "MMM Athletes" gather across the street at Hotel Congress each Monday between 5:15 and 6:00 pm.

This walk or run is designed to show-off Tucson's downtown and 4th Avenue. The MMM's goal is to get out and exercise, get out and make friends and get out and support our community.

More than 18 local eateries welcome the participants with MMM discounts and provide gift certificates for the free raffle at the conclusion of each evening.

MMM has partnered with a few downtown fitness venues, including O2 Modern Fitness, Yoga Oasis and Armory Park Center. These venues offer discounted prices for alternative exercise opportunities, such as indoor cycling, yoga, Zumba, Pilates, etc.

MMM offers incentive prizes to those with great attendance; eight times earns a free MMM t-shirt, 15 a MMM running cap, 50 a MMM pin and 100 earns a much coveted royal purple Century Shirt.
