Race Information

Celebrate over 50 years of friendly competition in the South Sound.  Whether it's their signature 12k route with challenging hills, spectacular water views, the occasional forest critter and trees that touch the sky - or the fast 5k route, be assured that you are a part of something bigger than yourself.  YOU are the fabric of Tacoma and the South Sound.  YOU are its community. YOU are carriers of tradition.

For the younger athletes, the also event offers the Sound to Narrows 2k race or the ever-competitive 20-yard Diaper Dash for the wee ones.
