2021 Longest Day 10K Postponed

It's official. Due to recommendations made by the Whatcom County Health Department, the City of Bellingham has canceled all permitted events and facility rentals through August 30, 2020. As a result, the 2020 Longest Day 10K has been canceled or as we prefer to say "postponed" until Sunday, June 20, 2021.

While we hoped for a different outcome and eagerly anticipated kicking off Summer 2020 with you, your health and safety as well as that of our community is top priority. Those currently registered for the 2020 race will receive a full refund in the next couple of days.

Although we aren't able to gather together this year as the solstice sun sets over Bellingham Bay, we can't wait to see your face again at the LD10K start line in 2021! Stay safe, enjoy your summer and make moments to soak in the beautiful sunsets.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE -
Runners, walkers, and everyone in between - this event is designed for you! The Longest Day 10K is ideal for serious runners looking for a chip-timed competitive or training race as well as those looking for a fun, unique and family-friend event.

This course does have portions of trail running and may not be entirely wheelchair, assisted wheelchair or stroller friendly. If you have a jogger stroller and are familiar running/walking with it you should be fine. There will be railroad track crossings you will be crossing.


Unfortunately we will not be allowing furry friends of any kinds to run the race with participants.

THE COURSE -
The Longest Day 10K gives racers a little bit of everything – city and trail running mixed with the beauty of the Pacific Northwest, including breath-taking views of the Bellingham waterfront as the solstice sun begins to set.

Starting at Fairhaven Village Green, you’ll head north – towards Mill Avenue – onto 10th Street trail in the direction of Taylor Dock. Stay on 10th Street until you reach Easton Road on our right. Take a right up Easton Road and then a flagger will direct you onto South State Street as you continue to the left. Once on North State Street, run until you reach the roundabout, where you will take a sharp left onto Wharf Street. Continue onto Cornwall Avenue until directed by a flagger to turn left onto West Laurel Street. Following route markers and flaggers, continue into Waypoint Park. This is roughly halfway through the race and a water station opportunity. From here, continue along West Laurel Street, taking a right onto Cornwall Avenue – following flagger directions.

On the return, at the top of Wharf Street, take a sharp right onto South Bay trail following it through Boulevard Park. Enjoy running or walking waterside through the park as the sun sets. Continue along the boardwalk. At the top of Taylor Dock, take a right to continue along 10th Street trail back to Fairhaven Village Green and across the finish line, where you will receive your race medal and enjoy grilled hot dogs!
