Whatcom Falls Park, Bellingham
Run solo or with a partner (team must finish together). See Awards section for race categories.
No dogs. Strollers welcome.


Race Description

The race will start and finish near the fish hatchery. After a short loop to the north to spread the crowd out, you will head west on the Waterline Trail. Then turn south (left) on the trail that takes you to Lakeway Dr. where you will turn right and enter Bayview Cemetery. Follow roads through the cemetery and reconnect and turn right on the Waterline Trail. Head east (staying left if you meet on coming runners) then turn left and cross the wood footbridge. After crossing the bridge turn left then sharp right up a short but steep hill and turn right again at the top. This trail will lead you across the old stone bridge and up to the parking area. From here you will cross the road and go up the trail by the registration shelter and turn left at the top onto the road and follow this loop back to the start/finish area.

For 2017 due to construction on the Waterline Trail the course will make a detour in the first mile. The course will now follow the road out to Lakeway Dr. and turn right on the sidewalk until it joins the normal course by the cemetery.
