Shamrock’n the Harbor 12K & 5K is a fun run/walk in Gig Harbor, WA. 100% of all proceeds benefit the Gig Harbor Senior Center. The 12K & 5K courses follow the gorgeous Cushman Trail, with a few rolling hills to keep those legs awake and working.

For the adventurous Shamrock'n 12K runners, the course will take you a distance across the Tacoma Narrows Bridge for a bird's eye view of the Narrows before turning around to make your way back to the finish line.
