GBRC Board Members
He loves running, hiking and biking. The running bug hit him when he moved from Montana to Washington in 1986. Though he primarily enjoys running Marathons, he has also run the Chuckanut 50K.
Larry has been a GBRC member since 2009 and has been director of the Honeywagon Runs since 2012. He is a regular volunteer at both the Lake Samish Runs and the Chuckanut 50K. He looks forward to serving on the GRBC Board and working alongside the other members to continue to keep our club strong in this community.
Involvement in this wonderful community is a source of pleasure for him. Other interests include volunteering at both the Mt. Baker Theater and the Pickford Film Center. He encourages others to volunteer at GRBC events as well as at other community events as a way to give back. Giving is a good thing and it benefits everyone.
I recently joined the GBRC board after being a member of the club for several years. I’ve been the race director for the Lake Samish runs for the past six years and will be transitioning to direct the Haggen to Haggen. I look forward to contributing more actively to this wonderful organization!

After doing a handful of road half marathons, I was introduced to trail running in 2015. I loved the challenge of the variable terrain and the sense of being on an adventure in the woods. I do almost all of my outdoor activities and trail running with my husband, Brock. We also enjoy bike touring, hiking, and cross-country skiing. I love trail races, particularly half marathons, and I’m interested in tackling some longer distance events in the future.
I’ve regularly attended the Wednesday night track workouts since joining GBRC. I’ve met the best people at the track through this club, and with their support, I’ve seen significant improvement each year. I never thought speed work was something I’d enjoy, but with the camaraderie of the group and our incredible coach, it’s a blast! I would encourage anyone who is interested in checking out the track workouts or local group runs to just go for it! You will find many new running pals and have a ton of fun.
I decided to get more involved in GBRC after six years of reaping the rewards of being a member. I am delighted to now be a board member, and I love telling people about our awesome running club! I need to have my trusty GBRC running hat on whenever I run, and I am rarely seen without it. My favorite GBRC races are the Chuckanut Foot Race and The Blanchard Beast. My other favorite local race is the Baker Lake Classic 25K. I’ve run it every year since its inception in 2015. Bellingham is an amazing place to be a runner. We have an incredible running community, great trails, and a historic running club to support us!
GBRC member since 2001. Giving back to the running community and serving as board member strengthening our sponsorship with the local business community. Keeping the costs low to our members is our goal which includes having great sponsors to grow our club and provide quality races.
I currently work on the GBRC design, website and emailers.
When I moved to Bellingham only a few years ago, I knew almost nothing about the things almost all Bellinghamsters sometimes take for granted–the amazing network of trails that interconnects this city and the insanely easy access we have to outdoor adventures. After many solo explorations of both of those things, I started to meet and become friends with many like-minded people (which I now know are a dime-a-dozen here! In the best possible way). I think I may have even met my match for life through my trail running adventures (while running the Fragrance Lake trail), and I am thankful that she continues to inspire and challenge me in my running pursuits on a daily basis.
I have been running all my life and it feels good to finally be able to give something of substance back to the running community. I am excited to serve as co-race director for the Lake Padden Relay and look forward to an excellent time being involved with GBRC.
Before she finished her Undergraduate studies, she decided it would be an amazing accomplishment to run a marathon and in 2011 she completed the Seattle Marathon. It didn’t last long before she started getting into trail running and that April 2012 she ran and completed her first 50 mile race. Sabrina is now running trail ultramarathons- distances vary but as large as 100 milers. She will always take the opportunity to run if it involves a good group of people, great food, and beautiful views!
Sabrina and her husband became GBRC members for a number of years and both love what GBRC brings to the community. Sabrina has worked with other nonprofits in town and works within the education system currently. She has a passion for helping people live healthy, community center, lives and she is thrilled to have an opportunity to be a Board member.
As a GBRC board member Tim helps with various technology related things such as website updates and online registration setup. He is also one of the founders and race directors of our new trail race The Blanchard Beast.
