Chuckanut Drive (SR11), approximately 6.5 miles south of Bellingham, turn east into Larrabee State Park (Clayton Beach parking lot), Discovery Pass required. Aid Station will be located in the NW corner of the parking lot. Participants will run along the trail from the interurban to the chain link fence, follow the fence line, and enter the parking lot for aid, then return the way they came in.
The Last Chance Marathon & ½ Marathon starts at 9:00 am. A few early participants will start at 8:00 am, they have been instructed to provide their own aid until you are set up. I would appreciate all volunteers to arrive at the start/finish area by 8:00 am. The 2 aid stations will have their tent and table set out ahead of time. We will hand out the water jugs and food bin at the start/finish area by 8:30 so you are able to be at the aid station by 9:00 am. Please pick up any trash near the trail. We want to leave the area cleaner than we found it
Thanks for helping out at this year’s race. Without your help we couldn’t put on this race. One of our volunteers will sweep the course looking for trash, and assuring all the runners have finished, when this person arrives they will tell you when you can close shop. Please return to the finish for food and festivities after the last runner leaves your aid station. Give me a call as well so we can pick up your tent, water containers, and other stuff.
