Welcome to the 53rd Chuckanut Foot Race!
We are so pleased to be able to offer this as an “in-person” event, our first since March 8, 2020. It will be quite 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.
COVID-19 Mask Policy
We will follow all CDC and DOH guidelines pertaining to the Caronavirus pandemic and expect our participants to do the same. We will not be checking vaccination status or requiring vaccinations. If you are not vaccinated, we do ask that you do wear a mask as this is the current CDC recommendation. We share all this in hopes that you take caution to keep yourself and others safe. If GBRC needs to adjust our policy, participants will be expected to adjust with us. Flexibility is key! Thanks in advance for your understanding.
This year the Chuckanut Foot Race will be offered in two formats, both in-person and virtually.
- When: August 28th, 2021 (First Wave) @ 9am
- Where: Starts at Marine Park (Fairhaven WA.)
- When: August 21st thru August 28th
- Where: Anywhere you choose
GbThis 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.

Spectators will be allowed at the start and finish in accordance with our mask policy stated above.

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 Bags 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. However, we are offering Gatorade and water at the finish to refill your vessel.
