Tacoma Marathon

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.

    It was very warm. So happy to see the strength of our team pushing through the heat and hills to some amazing finishes. Congrats to all that killed this course.

    I checked the race website, under race schedule, and it indicates that the last shuttle will depart at 6am. It might be referring to the marathon only so it may not apply to y'all.

    I'll be heading down Saturday morning to enjoy the expo and pick up my packet. Is anyone else planning on being at the expo Saturday?

      I'm thinking we will be later than 12. I'm going to let my daughter get a nap in before we head to Tacoma. I will see everyone on Sunday!!!

      I'm aiming to finish right around 4:20. I'd love some company to run with! Sticking by the 4:25 pacer sounds good to me. I'll look for you Sunday morning.

      Sounds good! I am a half fanatic and will have the half fanatics shirt on with a skirt or some shorts :)

    The shuttle buses run until 6:30am. I know the description above says to meet for pre-race photos at 6:15am, but I feel a little nervous about us counting on getting on the last shuttle bus. How about we plan for a photo at 6am at the Finish and maybe we can get one more over in Gig Harbor?

      Totally spaced and missed the 10 PM online registration deadline last night, but what's another $10. I'll be signing up at the expo tomorrow! Pretty sure the medal and the weather have convinced me. :)

    I do not plan on running this as it is a week after my full but I did promise to come down and cheer.
