Thinking about joining in on the fun of training for a spring full or half marathon but don't want to deal with travel and hotels? The 10th Anniversary Tacoma City Marathon is your answer! It's a brand new course this year with negative elevation gain!
From the website- "The NEW Michelob ULTRA Tacoma City Marathon is a scenic point to point net downhill course. Starting at Associated Aviation. Crossing the Tacoma Narrows Bridges will leave you in awe of the great Puget Sound and views of Mt. Rainier. After the short accent off the Narrows Bridge you will be treated to easy rolling terrain through North Tacoma's Proctor District, the home of the new Fleet Feet Tacoma location. The course gradually descends through beautiful Pt. Defiance Park and eventually comes down to the flat and fast Tacoma Waterfront. The new finish line provides a flat and fast entrance into the city. Experience the Narrows and Beauty of Tacoma!"
It's the same day as the Vancouver Marathon so your training schedule will match up perfectly to everyone. As we get closer to race day we can coordinate carpools. Jennifer and I plan to do at least one long run on part of the course as well.
