The marathon is a stunning mix of trail running in Bellingham with lots of tough climbs on single track trails, as well as fast interurban trails and a short road section. With 5,000 feet of climbing, this may be the toughest marathon in Washington! The race connects two of the most popular trail systems, Lake Padden and Chuckanut Mountain. Runners will enjoy lake and forest views through Padden Park and expansive views of the city of Bellingham, the Cascade Mountain range, and Bellingham Bay from Chuckanut Ridge. All finishers get a custom made medal and catered post race meal.
