Here's what's coming up...
Saturday 28 June, 7-9pm, we will be playing at the Acme Diner for the Return of the Mountain Runners event. Eight runners will run from Bellingham Bay to Mount Baker and back - a total of 108 miles. Their route follows a proposed National Recreation Trail that winds from downtown Bellingham to the new Lake Whatcom Park and into the town of Acme, eventually linking up with the trail system that was used by the original mountain runners, over 100 years ago, to summit Mount Baker. The group run is scheduled to begin at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, June 27 at Cornwall Beach Park and is predicted to finish at approximately midnight on Saturday, June 28. Daniel Probst, founder of the Cascade Mountain Runners, has organized this year's run as a preliminary step in the planning and production of a new "Mount Baker Ultra Marathon," tentatively scheduled for June of 2015. The public is invited to join in on the action at the official "Return of the Mountain Runners BBQ" at the Acme Diner on Saturday, June 28 from 6:00-9:00 p.m. There will be live music, BBQ food and beer supplied by Kulshan Brewing Co. The runners will be stopping by on their return from the summit of Mount Baker for a bite to eat and some celebration before finishing the last 25 miles of their journey. All proceeds from this event go towards the reestablishment of the Mount Baker Marathon as a destination event for Bellingham and Whatcom County. See the Shows page for more information.
