Annually, the Bellingham Traverse roster is predominately filled up with local “Hamsters”, which is why I believe the event has such a grassroots “This is what B’ham is all about” feel to it. In addition to a great course that is able to highlight our urban greenways, abundant parks, challenging trails and a protected bay- the people are really what make our race a Northwest Rite of Passage.
As advocates for regional recreation, we also like to see out-of-town guests come play with us as well. While, we have people come from all around for the race, we are always excited to introduce more people to our beautiful city. In order to help make that happen, we have created a special relationship with the Lakeway Inn this year. If you are coming to town to TRAIN for The TRAVERSE or planning to stay the weekend for race day you can receive a 15% discount at Lakeway Inn on your room nights. Simply call and say, “I’m coming for the Bellingham Traverse”, and they’ll take care of you. That’s right, not only the weekend of the race, but anytime during the year!
Hope to see you here.
