About the 13.1 Course:
St Paddy's Day Run Tacoma half marathon is in it's fourth year. Last year we had a great turnout, so we increased the number of runners to give more people the opportunity to participate. 2017 will have a capacity of 800 runners. The course is gorgeous, with a few rolling hills to keep those legs awake and working.
