Run with the Chums is a fun and free event for all ages to celebrate Healthy Water & Healthy People. Run or walk on a scenic loop through the highlands above Cherry Point Aquatic Reserve and Point Whitehorn and learn more about watershed health while taking care of your own health! The 5k route explores forested trails, opening up to coastal views, and finishing through agricultural land celebrating the wide variety of resources we have here in Whatcom County. A kids only 1k Smolt Sprint –featuring a salmon themed obstacle course– will start at 10 am and all racers will receive a ribbon.
This year’s Run with the Chums will have an additional focus on Orca recovery, Puget Sound’s Southern Resident Killer Whales are critically endangered. The single biggest threat is lack of their primary food source, Salmon!! Join local partners that are working in habitat recovery efforts to learn what we can all do to protect and recover this iconic species.
