With two weekly runs (every week), there's never been a better time to start than right now.
Join a community of runners that represents every corner of the region and vast world of experiences.
Tacoma is a beautiful waterfront city of neighborhoods. It is a spectacular place to be a runner.
Every pace and every style of running is represented. Fast. Slow. Runner. Walker. Get outside and join us.
The Tacoma Runners began in January 2010 with a few words on Twitter. Three people confirmed for an easy run from Tacoma's iconic Parkway Tavern. Seven showed up. Twelve runners came for week two from the Red Hot. Then sixteen the following week. After more than four years, several thousand runners have joined us and the group continues to grow. All events are open to runners of all speeds and abilities. We won't lose you.
We have two weekly runs - a Thursday night social run and a free Saturday 5k. These are a great way to meet people and learn about all the various running options in the South Sound.
I started with Tacoma Runners in Dec '13 and have ran weekly with them ever since. I started as a very beginner and they have given me constant motivation and support. I developed a love for running, shed 30 lbs and also have met many great friends along the way. I also have ran in the most beautiful places in Tacoma that I never knew existed. I love Tacoma Runners!
I love running with the Tacoma Runners. I've met nice people and developed lasting friendships. I've learned my way around Tacoma by exploring the streets and supporting local businesses. What a great way to spend a Thursday night!
Tacoma Runners completely changed my negative opinion about Washington. Never thought I could meet so many people who enjoy running, drinking beer and conversation. They made it hard to leave Washington and I can't wait to get back.
