ST. PADDY’S DAY RUN TACOMA

The St. Paddy’s Day Run Tacoma half marathon is an out-and-back course starting in downtown Tacoma.

You’ll run along the waterfront until it connects to the Ruston Way Path, where you’ll head towards the Point Ruston Waterwalk and Tacoma’s Dune Peninsula Park.  Before turning around, you’ll go up the Wilson Way Bridge for a bird’s eye veiw of the area, and then make your way back down the waterfront to finish downtown.

MUD MOUNTAIN DAM HALF MARATHON

The Mud Mountain Dam half marathon begins alongside Veteran’s Park and the South Prairie Creek, gradually taking you downhill on the Foothill Rail Trail.

You’ll pass through farmlands and forest, snaking along the Carbon River. As you continue down the Foothill Trail, you’ll make your way through the quaint towns and communities of the Cascade Junction, South Prairie, and Orting. The finish takes you across the McMillin Foothill’s Trail Bridge before running through the Historic McMillin Bridge to cross the finish line.

We’re excited to announce the return of this event on Saturday, August 13th, which features a new half marathon and 5k course that begins and ends at Cheney Stadium! We’re partnering with the Tacoma Rainiers and are thrilled to be a part of their R Health and Wellness weekend. It’s going to be a weekend full of running and baseball fun!

The Tacoma Narrows Half Marathon is an out-and-back course that will start outside Cheney Stadium, take you across the majestic Tacoma Narrows Bridge and then bring you back inside Cheney Stadium, where you’ll run on the warning track (and where you will see yourself on the jumbotron and be able to say “Look Ma, I made it!”).
