Event description

Description

Bust out your running/walking shoes...


...and experience the magic of the hidden gem of the San Juan Islands and get ready to RUN (and walk, jog & meander!)

Maybe you've already experienced the magic of Lummi Island, one of Lonely Planet's "top 10 U.S. travel destinations in 2013". Or maybe you've heard or read about the Willows Inn, our local restaurant called "one of 10 restaurants worth a plane ride" by the New York Times. Now's your excellent chance to do what you love (run or walk) and support education on Lummi Island and our local elementary school, the Beach School, and our incredible students.


The Route:

Might this be the most-waterfront running route in all the land? We think so! What we know for sure is that it will take your breath away - the very air you're breathing feels somehow magical. And you never know, if we're lucky, the J, K and L superpod of orcas may just make an appearance to encourage you on!

Start times:

Both races start at 10:00am at the Beach Store Cafe! Take a right off of the ferry and walk about a block, the Beach Store Cafe is on your left - can't miss it.


YMCA GIRLS on the RUN & Trailblazer Mom & Dad get SPECIAL DISCOUNT!

If your child is part of the YMCA program (s) Trailblazers or Girls on the Run, you have a special invitation to join us in supporting education on Lummi Island! Kids under 12 run for free and YOU mom & dad recieve 20% off the registration fee!!

The Experience:

20 minutes west of Bellingham and a 5-minute ferry ride away, Lummi Island is easily accessible. Ferry times from Gooseberry point are 10 minutes after the hour or 7:10, 8:10, 9:10. If you RUN4LIFE you can choose to park on the mainland and ride the ferry as a walk-on, "on us"! Once on the ferry and safely in the ferry cabin, just tell the ferry folks that you are participating in RUN4LIFE and they will use our prepurchased ferry pass at no charge to you! This is for walk-ons only, it does not apply to drive-ons. After the run, linger for live music and lunch at the Beach Store Cafe or walk up to the Sauseburger Stand. Mingle with friends old and new before hopping the ferry back.

Ferry schedules can be found at Lummi Island ferry schedules


The Prize For The Team Leader Who Registers The Biggest Team


A one-night stay and dinner for two at the Willows Inn is yours if you're the team captain who registers the most runners/walkers at the 10.9K or the 5.8K level. A once-in-a-lifetime experience and worth a dollar amount of about $850.00!!. Many thanks to our fabulous Willows Inn team of supporters!

Also, for the folks who register as individuals, we will have a drawing for a $75.00 gift certificate to the Beach Store Cafe: YUM! The Beach Store Cafe is - conveniently - our starting line and finish line so you will be in the right place to use that gift certificate!



The Good You're Doing

Unlike other races you may have participated in, this one is truly and really a benefit for kids and their education. We're doing everything humanly possible to keep costs as low as possible, ideally nonexistent, so every dollar raised can go to Lummi Island Foundation for Education, a nonprofit committed to sustaining and enhancing education at The Beach School and for children on Lummi Island. For this reason, this will be an untimed race, meaning you'll have to keep your own race time (those timing chips are so expensive to rent!). And, we want you to know, all proceeds go directly to supporting Beach School and education on Lummi Island.
