Get your fill of dirt, rocks and roots at the Lake Padden Trail Half – a 13.1 mile TRAIL half-marathon! The dense forest around Lake Padden, (located in beautiful Bellingham, WA) gives way to a challenging and memorable course designed for intermediate to advanced runners. In addition to the half marathon there is a 5k, a great and memorable event where we encourage everyone who participates to wear a costume.
Lake Padden Half Marathon is part of the Washington Full & Half Marathon series. Complete 4, 7, or 10 of the participating races in a given year and receive a medal celebrating your accomplishment at a medal race. Check here for a list of races participating in the half series.
P.S. Last Chance Marathon & Half Marathon is a medal race.
There is parking near the start/finish for a number of runners. Should we get a very large number of runners it would be a good idea to carpool if possible. If not possible, arriving early enough to secure a spot and walk to the start is a good idea.
