HALF MARATHON & 5K COURSES

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!”).

The Tacoma Narrows 5K course will also start and finish at Cheney Stadium and include a lap around the warning track.
