"Annual Event with Humble Beginnings - [in 2003] Gig Harbor chiropractor Dr. Tim Holmes’ 25 year old son persuaded him to sign up for his first marathon. Having never participated in an organized run before, he thought it would be a good idea to try one before the actual marathon.

The trot begins at 8:00 am starting on the main road in front of the Gig Harbor post office (3118 Judson St), where you can drop off your cans of food and prepare for the race. Day-of Registration starts at 6:30 AM. You will also be able to pay and pick up t-shirts and bib numbers the day of the race (although we encourage everyone to pay ahead of time, to make for a quick and less-chaotic process).
5k and 10k Routes
The Start of both routes is in front of the Gig Harbor post office on Judson St. There will be volunteers along the way to guide you. For the latter half of the 10k, follow the orange arrows on the map. For the 5k, you will turn around approximately at the point on the map that says "5k turn-around". The end of both routes is at the starting line, in front of the post office.
This year, all proceeds are going to FISH food bank, a local organization called Food Backpacks 4 Kids, the Bischoff food bank, and local high school scholarships.
