Saturday, September 17th, 2016 Vital Choice Bellingham Traverse
Get Hooked on the Vital Choice Bellingham Traverse, a fun relay race that celebrates the journey of wild salmon. Families, friends and local companies form Chinook (solo), Coho (tandem) and CHUM (relay teams) to run, bike and paddle through Bellingham’s scenic parks, winding trails and open waterways.
Have fun with your friends and compete with the best–everyone is welcome to participate in this beloved community event. Celebrate your accomplishment with a pint of Traverse Ale at the Boundary Bay Brewery Finish Line! The Traverse supports the Stewardship Programs of Recreation Northwest and Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association.
Using mountain bikes, your trusty feet, you will navigate a series of checkpoints using only map and compass to make your way from start to finish. Experts get to use sea kayaks too!
