Tacoma Narrows Half Marathon
Run or walk one of the most unique race courses in the Puget Sound Region! This point to point course starts at the Tacoma Narrows Airport, crosses over the majestic Tacoma Narrows Bridge, runs on Scott Pierson Trail, into Cheney Stadium and around the infield and finishes in beautiful downtown Tacoma...the city of destiny. We can't think of a better way to see the city.
The race is on a certified course (WA09035MW).
