Tucson is just one stop on the All of Us Journey’s 37-week national tour, where attendees will learn more about the All of Us Research Program and its potential to advance precision medicine in the future.
 
WHAT
The Tucson Marathon invites members of the Tucson community to visit the All of Us Journey and learn more about precision medicine and the All of Us Research Program.

WHY
As this traveling exhibit makes its way across the nation, it will provide community members with information on the All of Us Research Program. Unlike a single research study focused on a specific disease or community, All of Us will serve as a national research resource to inform thousands of studies, covering a wide range of health conditions.
 
ABOUT THE TUCSON MARATHON
The Tucson Marathon Events have been run annually since 1995, growing from 800 participants to over 4000 throughout that period.  Our races have proven to be favorites for local runners as well as visitors, with 48 states and 5 foreign countries being represented last year.  A little more than half of the runners in the Marathon field have been male, with the reverse true of the Half-Marathon.  The combination of a fast course with moderate to cool race time temperatures make these races a popular choice for runners searching for a personal best. Our course is consistently ranking as a top 10 Boston qualifying course. Whether you’re looking for a fast competitive event, or simply a ‘leisurely’ 26.2 mile morning run, the Tucson Marathon races will be a good fit.
 
ABOUT THE ALL OF US RESEARCH PROGRAM
The All of Us Research Program is a historic effort to gather data from one million or more people living in the United States to accelerate research and improve health. By taking into account individual differences in lifestyle, environment, and biology, researchers will uncover paths toward delivering precision medicine.
