Tacoma City [Nov. 23rd, 2008|11:31 pm]
Seattle Runners


Okay, so it's not really Seattle, but has anyone had experience with the Tacoma City half marathon? It's on my list of planned runs, but have no idea what the terrain is like. Is it flat? Hilly?

I ran as a pacer for the first Tacoma City Marathon two years ago. The second half of the course is flat. The half-marathoners run with the full marathon runners at the same time in the very beginning. You have to contend with some minor hills in the beginning, but after you get past those, it's flat until the end.

I did the full marathon last year and all I can say is that second half of the full was brutal hill wise for me.

The half marathon didn't look that bad (the routes mirrored each other for a bit.) The hills were all in the beginning.
