A big THANK YOU to all runners who participated in this series and run our races!


Here is how it works:

The TCMA Crown of the Sound 13.1 Series starts with St. Paddy's Day and you can pick any 3 of the races mentioned above to complete the series. If you don't run St. Paddy's Day Half Marathon you will need to complete 3 other half marathon distance races to complete the series.

The series will only count races in the half-marathon distance (13.1 miles). We cannot count the Tacoma City marathon full marathon towards completion of the series.

Only races completed in 2019 count in this series.

Only races completed will count - being signed up but not running will not be counted.

The age group for the series is determined by the person’s age as of the date of the first event in the series. If a person has a birthday after the first event they remain in the original age group however their placement in the new age group is used for each event after their birthday.  

TCMA Crown of the Sound 13.1 Series scores and updates will be available here on this page and will be updated after every race that counts towards the series.
