All 3 courses get to the bridge!

Celebrate and explore the beauty of the region surrounding the iconic Tacoma Narrows Bridge! Accompany Lenny on the 5k, 10k, or Half Marathon course from the Tacoma Narrows airport through some of the most spectacular views the area has to offer. Enjoy these challenges and rewards knowing you’re supporting some great local causes including the Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital, Children’s Home Society, Communities in School, and FoodBackpacks4Kids. The Rotary Club of Gig Harbor North proudly supports these charities by hosting this event for the 8th straight year!

5k run/walk

A course for all with a rewarding photo opportunity overlooking the Puget Sound from the bridge! Yes – you will get to the bridge! This is the only 5k that goes on the bridge.

10k

Adventure with Lenny across the Narrows and back! After crossing the sound this course dips into Narrows Park for a unique view of the bridge before heading back to the airport. It will be a challenge but we know you can do it!

Half Marathon

Are you tough enough?! Accept the natural challenges our area’s landscape offers and reap the rewards. This course collects three scenic experiences from atop the bridge and both the eastern and western shores of the Puget Sound. Becoming one of the region’s most excitingly challenging courses, these 13.1 miles will have you earning bragging rights.
