Galloping Gertie Half Marathon routes

From the organizer

Organizer's website

The Galloping Gertie Half Marathon, 10k and 5k offer the only race to cross the iconic Tacoma Narrows Bridge twice in the same event! Spanning between Tacoma and Gig Harbor, the original bridge was made famous in 1940 when it collapsed after 5 months of operation, earning its nickname of Galloping Gertie. We assure you the newest bridge (with the running path) is far more sound and offers you the opportunity to take in amazing views of Tacoma, Gig Harbor, Mount Rainier and the Olympic Mountains as you race across Gertie far above the Puget Sound!
