History of the Bellingham Bay Marathon

The Bellingham Bay Marathon, Half Marathon & 5K is a group of races designed by runners for runners and walkers.

Founded in 2003 by the Bellingham Bay Swim Team, the BBM delivers a fun, highly personal, authentic race experience, particularly for runners and walkers who value well-organized, personal experience over the chaotic, crowded fields of “big city” races through “concrete canyons”.

To that end, the races continue to grow and receives accolades from beginner, experienced and elite athletes. We are a race that supports every participant — no one is a stranger on our courses — celebrates every individual accomplishment and embodies the spirit of friendship and community that is so unique to running.
