Registration for El Tour 2020 opens in March, 2020







What’s New

You’ve told us in the past registration was a bit of a hassle.  We fixed it for you.
Searchable, sortable, automated results and automatic notifications for participants.  Something you’ve been asking for.  Now it’s here.
The 2019 El Tour De Tucson will be fully integrated with the Mobile App RaceJoy. Gone are the days when those cheering you on had to guess at your progress along the route.  Now they can track you real-time and send you cheers . . . from home . . . or from a vantage point along the route.  You’re never in this ride alone!
Goodbye old fashioned race days.  Hello RaceJoy.
