Half Marathon & Relay

About the 13.1 Course:

St Paddy's Day Run Tacoma half marathon is in its eighth year.  Last year we had a great turnout, so we increased the number of runners to give more people the opportunity to participate. 2020 will have a capacity of 800 runners. The course is gorgeous, with a few rolling hills to keep those legs awake and working. 

Finishers will receive one of our famous St. Paddy's Day Run medals.
