Welcome to the 53rd Chuckanut Foot Race!
We are so pleased to be able to offer this as an “in person” event, our first one since March 8, 2020. It will be slightly different from those in the past. Due to CDC guidelines, entries will be limited to 210. We will have 7 wave starts with 5 minute intervals in between each start. We are also offering a Virtual Option for those of you who are not quite ready to participate in an in person event.
When: August 28th, 2021 at 9:00am.
Where: Starts at Marine Park (Fairhaven, WA.)
This point-to-point, seven-mile trail race starts at Marine Park in Fairhaven and finishes at Larrabee State Park, the oldest state park in Washington. After about 1/2 Mile on paved streets the course follows the legendary Interurban Trail, which threads through the Chuckanut Mountains and features gorgeous views of Chuckanut Bay and the San Juan Islands.

There is no race day parking available at Marine Park. Parking is very limited in and around Fairhaven so we strongly encourage runners to carpool. Parking is also limited at Larrabee State where the Race Finishes. A Discover Pass is REQUIRED to park in the Park. They can be purchased on site for $10.00
Once again, due to the current Covid situation, there will be no spectators allowed at the start or finish.
Thank you for your cooperation.
All participants are encouraged to either run walk or find other means of transportation back to start line. If you choose, Baker Bus will be shuttling runners from the Finish back to the start. You will need to sign up for the shuttle during registration process. Due to CDC restrictions, buses will operate at 50% capacity. Shuttle service will begin when buses are at capacity and will continue until all runners are transported back to the start.
Drop Bag Transport
Drop bags will be collected at the start and transported to the finish. We ask that you bring your own bag for your belongings.
There will be no aid stations on the course this year so we strongly encourage you to bring your own hydration.
Finish Line Closure
Finish line will close at 11:30 AM and we ask all runners not to congregate and to leave in a timely manner when finished.
Running Shoe Recycling Program
BBay Running and GBRC have joined together to start a program for runners to recycle their old running shoes. So bring all your old running shoes with you to the Chucknut Foot Race and we will take them off your hands and keep them out of our landfills.
