Runners follow an out-and-back course for the half marathon that unfolds largely along the Bellingham Bay shoreline, with the race start and finish line along Railroad Avenue at Depot Market Square. From there, the course heads first northwest through the city and away from the water for the first few miles, taking runners past local parks and neighborhoods and the way out toward Bellingham’s airport.
Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race. Though every effort has been made to ensure its accuracy, changes are sometimes made to race routes due to weather conditions, road closures or other circumstances that can require a course to be changed.
