Birch Bay Road Race offers a 5k, 15k and 30k distance–something for everyone! Run along the beautiful shores of Birch Bay at the Birch Bay Road Race! You’ll spot eagles and herons as you run or walk along these amazing courses. Birch Bay is a seaside village close to the Canadian border, just two hours from Seattle and an hour and a half from Vancouver, BC. Stay at Semiahmoo Resort and make a weekend out of it! Running groups and teams are invited to sign up for the Club Challenge. Walkers are welcome.
Views abound as the beautiful course is run along the shores of Birch Bay while the crisp sea air fills your lungs.
There will be aid stations on the course serving water, Clif nutrition products (Gels), and electrolyte drink. 15k runners will hit the aid stations at approximately 1.75, 3.75, 5.5, and 7.5 miles. 30k runners will hit aid stations at approximately 1.75, 3.75, 5.5, 7.5, 9.5, 11, 13, 15, and 16.5 miles.
