More about the Courses
The Half Marathon and Just TRI-7 (aka the Dragon Run) will follow the same route as the 2017 course – To the Town of Steilacoom via Farwest Drive X Steilacoom Blvd (traffic controlled) to downtown Steilacoom and back to the park. This race will challenge you and reward you! There are several steep up hills, there are treacherous down hills, there is about 4 miles of multi-use trails, but after all this, athletes are rewarded nicely with very well-deserved swag. Be sure you have what it takes to complete this half. If you get tired, no problem--stop and have a burger and beer at any one of several great pub and grills along the way or after the race. BEAST Pacing…You likely have seen the Beast Pacing team on various courses – we will have 10 pacers on the course! They will pace and guide participants along the route.
The JustTRI-7 Mile Run…The Dragon!
JustTRI host’s the 5th Dragon Run. It's like a 10K (6.2 miles) except it's 7 miles! Yes, it's just a bit longer. One mile for each letter of JustTRI. This distance was designed for runners of all skill sets but be ready to take on the various challenging hills. The JustTRI-7 is part of a 7-run series called the Dragon Series.
5K Fun Run – Same place, same time!
The 5K will be entirely in Fort Steilacoom Park, around the beautiful Waughop Lake! The 5K course will be relatively fast, but we do like to throw in a hill or two. No worries, it will be very doable for athletes of all caliber. Several of our 5K’s have included the steepest hills Fort Steilacoom has to offer, but not this one. It will be a moderate level course and fun for the whole family…Just Tri!
Free 1 Mile Kids run
We always like to do this for the kids! All participants get a free 1st Place medal. Parents, pets, and all are welcome and encouraged to complete this fun race. It’s Free! It’s Fun! It’s for the whole family!
