The Race For A Soldier is a Half-Marathon, 10 Miler and 5K run through the beautiful city of Gig Harbor, Washington. This race brings together our community, military service members and first responders. The participants and volunteers will enjoy an uplifting and patriotic experience throughout the morning. Refreshments and food will be generously provided by our community partners. Runners will receive a shirt, race swag and other memorable souvenirs.
