Galloping Gertie 1/2 Marathon Run

August 12th 2017 | 6:45 am

Whether you are an avid runner, or walking is more your pace, between the half marathon, 10k, and 5k, there is a distance for you.

While the courses are still being designed, the marathon features a scenic view across the Tacoma Narrows Bridge and back. This is a chip timed run, and top finishers will receive recognition.

Another fun aspect is the Gig Harbor Area High School Competition. All volunteers and participants relay which school their loyalties lie with-Peninsula High School or Gig Harbor High School. The school with the most support will receive a portion of the funds from registration and the prestigious Lenny Trophy to display for the next year.
