Location: there earlier, here now, somewhere later... Bellingham in between
|The 27th annual Chuckanut Mountain 50 km trail run is Saturday March 16, 2019. ( it is always on the third Saturday in March). The course starts and finishes in Fairhaven Park (South Bellingham) and includes travel on several of the popular trails on Chuckanut Mountain. Although all trails are open to the public for the duration of this esteemed and internationally popular event, with over 500 runners on trails from 8 a.m. to as late as 4 p.m., hiking may not be the most enjoyable for those who like some solitude.
That said, if you'd like to see how some of the fastest trail runners in America smoke a downhill, check out the Fragrance Lake trail at around 10:30 to 11:00 or the Arroyo Park trail at around 11:00 to 11:30. But parking may be difficult to find.
Passing rocks and trees like they were standing still
