Thursday Night Beer Run

The Thursday night run is how we got started and is the cornerstone of our running community.


Overview

The Thursday night beer run started in January, 2010 with just seven runners. It's a social run that now exceeds one hundred runners nearly every week of the year. Thousands of people have joined this run from every corner of the region.

The Thursday night run is approximately three miles long. This distance is a night off for some; it's aspirational for others.

Touring Tacoma

The run features a different bar or restaurant every week and has visited every corner of the city.

Every speed is represented

The run is a social run intended for people of all paces and abilities.

Rain or shine

To be a runner in Tacoma is to be a runner in the rain. There is no weather excuse.

An amazing community

The friendships that develop on the Thursday night runs are truly special.
