2018 Lakewood Half Marathon 5K & the Just Tri 7 Mile Run
Just Tri is hosting the 2nd Annual of this incredible - incredibly tough - run. 2017 was AMAZING. Participants crossed the finish in tears - tears of pain! But also tears full of accomplishment! The comments we heard included: 'This was a tough course!!' 'This was one of the hardest Half Marathons I have done'. This is the absolutely, most beautiful run in Lakewood and Steilacoom!
We set out to develop an 'A' Race Course and we did it!
Don't Stop Don't Quit Never give up!
2nd Annual Just Tri Half Marathon
The 'Just Tri' is very quickly is being known for 'That's a tough one.' There are several steep up hills, there are treacherous down hills (one maybe two), there is about 4 miles of multi-use trails, but after all this, athletes are rewarded nicely with very well-deserved swag. Come train with us starting in late January to be sure you have what it takes to complete this half. The course has wonderful South Sound views. 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.
The 5K will be entirely in Fort Steilacoom Park, around the beautiful Waughop Lake!
The Just Tri 7 Mile Run Series (the Dragon Series)
Just Tri is introducing the Just Tri 7. 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 Just Tri. This distance was designed for runners off all skill sets, but be ready to take on the various hills in all the locations the Just Tri 7 is being held. This year, 2018, is the inaugural series. The first event of the series will be at Fort Steilacoom Park. Just Tri has created 7 very unique finisher medals, in which the theme centers around dragon style designs. When Athletes complete all seven, 7 mile runs they will have completed a “Dragon”.
Each medal, with it’s one of a kind shape, will fit together. At the end of 2018, after completing 7 events, 49 miles, participants get to celebrate with a 1 mile “victory lap” and will receive a Just Tri “Dragon Series” medal holder.
Athletes can sign up for all seven, 7-mile races individually or sign up for all 6 at once and get the 7th for free. 7 miles is just a bit more than the normal 10K, but far more rewarding. All participants will receive a medal and Just Tri Finishers T-Shirt.
7 miles, per race, was chosen as the distance, because each mile stands for each letter of Just Tri. The running events are meant to challenge runners and take advantage of the various venues of the local great running areas from Point Defiance to Olympia. The courses will vary, but will all be good, solid running events and make use of road and multi-use public trails.
5K Fun Run at Fort Steilacoom Park - Same place.
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 first one. It will be a moderate level course and fun for the whole family…Just Tri!
We invite the entire family to come enjoy the actives - Just Tri events always include various giveaways, refreshments and fun for everyone.
