All The Information:     Just Tri 7 mile run (the Dragon Series) March 18th, at Fort Steilacoom Park will be the first race of the Just Tri 7 Series; Dragon #1. The 'Just Tri 7' is a 7 mile run and is held 7 times in a year.  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 lefts 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. During each of the Just Tri 7 mile events, we will have a great 5K run course as well.  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.    Kids 1 Mile Run/ Walk:

This a free event. The walk is free, parents may join, pets: bring them along!  It will be flat and enjoyable. This race will start at the same time as the other events.  Please note to receive swag participants must enter the Just Tri 7 or 5K! Photos:
Complimentary photos will be available – See our Web Site after the race!  RunLakewood.com
