COVID-19 Update

TCMA continues to monitor the developments with the COVID-19 crisis and the impact the Government mandates and public safety concerns have on our upcoming races.  In light of this, TCMA has made the decision to suspend registrations for the Tacoma City Marathon & Ghost of Tacoma on May 2, 3. The weekend events are canceled. If possible, we will postpone the race to a later date but due to the evolving and rapidly changing situation, we are unable to confirm a date.  TCMA will continue to monitor the situation and work in close contact with the City of Tacoma.


We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time as we navigate many unknowns.  Our intent is to find a positive solution for our running community.  We will keep you posted as soon as we have more definitive information.  Our normal refund policy remains in effect.
