The four big races along the Washington coast are issuing a challenge: run 3 races along the Salish Sea in 2019. Finish 3 of 4 races, no matter if they’re 5K or the full marathon, and receive a special medal – and some swag to boot.
The four Salish Sea Road Races are the Whidbey Island Marathon, Capital City Marathon, North Olympic Discovery Marathon, and Bellingham Bay Marathon, each taking place about a month apart from each other.
After registering for three or more races, you will be automatically enrolled to receive the Salish Sea Road Race Medal. From there, it will only be a matter of crossing each finish line.
If three or more races are not on your running docket, you can still enjoy discounts on the Salish Sea Series. To enroll, register for a race and receive a 15% discount on any additional races.
