No dogs. Strollers welcome.
Crossing Whatcom Creek in Whatcom Falls Park during the Two for the Road Race, Feb 2002.
NEW COURSE for 2013. 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 where the old finish line was. 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.
There will be ribbons for the top 4 in these categories. Male and female solo runners, 2 guys, 2 girls, guy/girl and parent/child. We will have as many prizes as we can round up for top finishers and random prizes.
8:45-9:45 AM at the large shelter near the start
