Race Description

The 5 mile course is mostly trail. After leaving Fairhaven Park, runners will be directed west on the Interurban trail towards the bay making a loop near the water and returning east passing Fairhaven Park. The course then continues out and back on the Interurban Trail with a small challenging hill on the C. Moore loop trail. The race finishes at Fairhaven Park.

Awards are 4 deep in each age group. Grand prizes to overall Male and Female finishers. We will also have random drawings (must be present to win).


Online registration

Race day registration is from 9-9:45am at Fairhaven Park (upper pavilion).

Fees for non-GBRC members is $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for ages 18 and under. There is no fee for the 1/2 mile kids race.

How to Get There

To reach Fairhaven Park, take exit 250 off I-5, head west on Fairhaven Parkway 1 1/2 mi to 12th St (traffic light). Turn left and stay left at the next light to follow Chuckanut Drive 300 yds to a left turn into Fairhaven Park. Parking lot is to the right as you enter.
