Beta Run # 1 - Saturday 5k for December 8, 2012

Saturday, December 08, 2012 at 8:00 am


The Tacoma Runners decided to create this free timed 5k event as a way to increase access to events and motivate runners to keep running. Of course, now we have to do it ... The official series starts in 2013. This run will be the first test of our software systems. The rest of our equipment isn’t even here yet. Signage will be limited and there will be a bit of temporary gear being used. This is a beta run. Please be patient with us. That said, come on out and help us get this system going. So ...

Join us for the first Tacoma Runners Saturday 5k! All are welcome.

You must have registered on the website and bring your barcode if you want to get credit for this run. You only need to register once for the entire series. Volunteers should also have a barcode to receive credit for being out with us.


The route will be completely contained in the closed portion of 5 mile drive at Point Defiance Park. The start/finish is just behind the gate where the road becomes closed to traffic. Be sure to arrive early enough to park in the designated area and walk to the start.


Parking is in the upper lot at Owen Beach in Point Defiance Park. As you approach 5 mile drive, take the right fork and head down the hill to Owen Beach. At the parking lot, turn left and head back up the hill. Park in one of the upper lots. Walk to the starting line just a bit further up the hill.

Ready? Register on the website, print your barcode, and come on out for the run!
