Ghost of Tacoma

Registration for the Ghost of Tacoma is OPEN

*Receive a $40 Discount if registered for the Sunday 26.2 or 13.1

Race Information: The Ghost of Tacoma is a low key event for those who wish to run two marathons in two days, runners must obey pedestrian laws when crossing streets, there are no mile markers and only 1 aid station at the turnaround.

It will be chipped timed and accurately measured. It is not a certified course for Boston and New York at this time. It is an opportunity for those wishing to qualify for the Marathon Maniacs and Half Fanatics as well.

There are bathrooms located along Ruston Way, honey buckets at mile 1, fixed bathrooms at mile 2.3, mile 3 and mile 3.5. The marathon is run twice on this course so there is aid at the finish line (13.1 mile) before you head back out.

The route is mostly on paved bike paths along the Puget Sound, there are several street crossings. This is an event more about completing the challenge of two race distances in two days.

Please note that the course is on sidewalks and you must obey pedestrian laws.

EARN ALL 4 MEDALS
Run the 5k Saturday, May 4th at 7:30 am. Pace yourself though and start the Half or Full Marathon 1 hour later at 8:30 am! The Ghost of Tacoma course is a beautiful out and back along the Tacoma Waterfront. Flat and fast but it is a low key event with several stoplight crossings. You must obey pedestrian laws during this event. YOU CAN DO IT!
