Running For Everyone

We continue to make running, and the community that surrounds it, accessible and inviting to everyone.

Commitment to Diversity

Greater Bellingham Running Club membership is open to every human regardless of race, color, sex, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, and ability, or any other potential labels that can be applied to describe a person.

This club invites people of all backgrounds and experience levels to join and get involved with our events.

Land Acknowledgement

The Greater Bellingham Running Club also acknowledges that we gather on unceded territories of Native Peoples and lands of the Coast Salish Peoples who have lived in the Greater Bellingham area and Pacific NW from time immemorial. We express our deepest gratitude for the First Peoples, our Indigenous neighbors- past, present, and future, for our shared lands in this beautiful part of the world. We wish to honor their legacy, lives, descendants, resiliency and culture in all that we do on their ancestral and traditional lands.

All of our work is done by our volunteer board and members. We are proud of what we do!
