Bellingham's first trail marathon connecting two of the most popular trails systems: Lake Padden and Chuckanut Mountain!
The marathon starts at Lake Padden and runs clockwise around the lake to 36th Street and Old Fairhaven Parkway where runners will get on the Interurban Trail. From there, the race goes onto the scenic Hemlock Trail, Lost Lake Trail, Black Diamond Trail and reaches to top of Chuckanut Mountain on Cleater Road. From there, runners will get on the fun and technical Chuckanut Ridge Trail with views of the Cascades and the city of Bellingham. After the ridge the race drops down to Lost Lake Trail again and follows the Interurban Trail back to the short road section returning to Lake Padden and continuing clockwise around the lake to the finish by the parking area/picnic shelter.
The 2.6 mile race begins at Lake Padden Park by the parking area and does one clockwise loop around the lake. Kids (<18) and High School students run for FREE!
