Meet Me at Maynards still running strong

Meet Me at Maynards just ran through a major milestone.

The weekly run/walk through downtown Tucson just hit the pavement for its 200th consecutive week.

In April it will mark the fourth anniversary of MMM.

It has grown from its small beginnings to now averaging 500 people each week.

Each Monday night runners and walkers of all ages and skill levels meet at Hotel Congress, across the street from Maynards Market, between 5:15-6:00 p.m. for the 2, 3, or 4 mile trek.

Organizers say it's very a social event, and not a timed race.

It's intended to promote both health and fitness and downtown Tucson.

MMM is free and participants get discounts at downtown restaurants along the route.

There is also Meet Me at La Encantada every Wednesday night.
