    Train for a 10K marathon with Arizona Cancer Center
    The Arizona Cancer Center is offering a 10K training program for the UA community.
    A free informational meeting will be today at noon in the Madera Room in the Student Union Memorial Center.
    The Better Than Ever program helps men and women of all ages, sizes and fitness levels find the “”athlete within”” while training for the Bobbi Olson Half Marathon.
    Because the thought of participating in a 13.1-mile half marathon is overwhelming for many, participants can choose from two different races to set as a goal: The Cinco De Mayo 10K or The New Balance Tucson Catalina State Park 5-Mile Trail and Road Combo event.
    Training for the events begins March 6 at training locations at the UA, Sabino Canyon and Rancho Vistoso.
    For more information, check out or contact Jennifer Castles with questions at 626-7177 or
