TCMA Elite Athlete Policy

Tacoma City Marathon Association takes pride in offering quality events, USATF certified courses, and in some cases prize money for the region’s top runners. We know that most elite athletes have day jobs, train hard and would like to be recognized for their efforts. Instead of giving out free entries to elite runners, we have found that those who pay an entry fee are more likely to show up and race. We will provide a discounted rate to those deemed elite at TCMA’s discretion. Please send your resume to This email address is being protected from spambots.

As an alternative you can check with your running club for complimentary entries or discounts into TCMA events. Another option is to earn a free entry or a discounted entry. These events cannot happen without volunteers. Our volunteer incentive program is one way to give back to the running events and earn a $30.00 discount entry for a future TCMA event.
