About Us

Tacoma Runners is a social running club in Tacoma, Washington.


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. Several thousand runners have joined us over the years. All events are open to runners of all speeds and abilities. We won't lose you.

The easiest way to learn about us is to join a run. Thursday night runs are significantly larger than the Saturday 5k. That said, simply join us.
