At this time, the 2020 Bellingham Bay Marathon is planned to go on as scheduled, however runner health is our top priority. We are working closely with state and local officials, along with the PeaceHealth race medical director to determine the safety of this event.  If the marathon is unable to take place due to COVID-19 safety concerns, the event will be made virtual. Participants can choose to run the virtual event and receive their swag, or defer their entry to 2021. No refunds will be offered - 100% of all proceeds go to fund local youth nonprofit sports organizations. We will continue to monitor the situation and communicate any updates as soon as they are available.

Thank you for your patience during these times
