Course Adjustments

The change in direction for the opening mile was a tremendous success. The entire meet stayed on schedule and the congestion that had occured in the first 200 meters was eliminated.

Fort Steilacoom Park started the project around the Lake at the end of October. That will provide a grassy path to run along in the Lake sections for 2017.


GC racing will once again be providing video timing along with live updates via mobile app.

We will also have the reknowned donut truck from the Original House of Donuts (voted best donuts in Western Washington) on site.
