"A lot of races do a good job of turning tragedy into an opportunity to make a difference, but few have the ability to create the emotional impact that the Race For A Soldier does..."

Runners

Run for a Cause

Since our first event in 2011, thousands of runners have run for a cause in beautiful Gig Harbor. If you're ready for the long haul (the half marathon) or prefer a slightly shorter haul (the brand new 5K run/walk), this is an amazing event to be a part of.
