Race Information

All finishers will receive one of this race's famous St. Paddy’s Day Run medals.

The half marathon is a gorgeous out-and-back course starting in downtown Tacoma, with a few rolling hills to keep those legs awake and working. 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 view of the area, and then make your way back down the waterfront to finish downtown.

The 10K is an out-and-back following along the half marathon route, starting in downtown Tacoma and running along the waterfront.

The 5K is an annual tradition and fun for the whole family, runners and walkers are welcome to join in this 3.1-mile event.
