Course Information

The 5K course follows a large loop on roads and hard pack trails. The 10K course is a repeat of the 5K course. These are the traditional courses. At no time do you cross a road. 
The race starts just inside Fairhaven Park at the juncture of the entrance road and the sidewalk leading to the park building. Start facing Chuckanut Drive, head out of the park and immediately turn left onto the sidewalk on Chuckanut Drive heading left (south). The largest hill, about 100 feet, occurs in the first 1/2 mile. The course continues on Chuckanut Drive, going back downhill then turns left on Old Samish Hwy for a very short time before turning left onto the Interurban Trail.  Follow the Interurban trail north for almost a mile before the route leaves the Interurban with a quick right and immediate left (west) out onto the Fairhaven Parkway sidewalk heading towards Fairhaven.  At the stoplight do not cross but turn left (south) onto Chuckanut Drive and proceed along the sidewalk, over the bridge and through another stoplight, until returning to the Fairhaven Park entrance on your left, and the finish line (where you started). The 10K course will repeat this 5K route one more time.

Part of this course is on the side of busy roads!  Be sure to use sidewalks and road margins. Stay as far off the road as possible.
