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.
Check out the past Traverse Results (2010 – 2014).
