Saturday 5k for May 16, 2015 (Route Change)

Saturday, May 16, 2015 at 8:00 am


A cool, flat, and fast run along Ruston Way.

We’re changing things up for this week’s Tacoma Runners Free Saturday 5k - we won’t be meeting in Point Defiance (someone else is using it), but instead we’re giving you the chance to run a flat out and back on the Ruston Way waterfront. We know you’ll miss those hills in the park, but never fear, we’ll be back there next week!

This week we’ll be at the alternate course along Ruston Way. Meet us at Dickman Mill Park (see below for parking and route information).

Join us for the weekly free Tacoma Runners Saturday 5k.

The route starts at the fire hydrant near the restrooms in Dickman Mill Park and continues along the waterfront sidewalk toward Point Ruston. This means you will run past a number of restaurants including Harbor Lights, the Ram, Shenanigans, Katie Downs and Duke’s as you run along the sidewalk toward the turnaround point. On the way out, the route veers right along the water edge in Cummings Park, then continues down the sidewalk to the turnaround point near the narrow parallel parking strip. A volunteer will be set up at the turnaround point and then the route continues back with the only difference being that you stay on the sidewalk along the roadway through Cummings Park.


The run starts and finishes near the restrooms at Dickman Mill Park, so runners should park either in the parking lot across the street from the Harbor Lights restaurant or in the limited number of spaces near the Silver Cloud Inn.

Be sure to arrive early enough to park in the designated area and walk to the start.
