the Chuckanut 50k is thankful to have the CONTINUED support of the following companies:
Fairhaven Runners & Walkers - Since my first day as RD, Fairhaven Runners has fully supported the Chuckanut 50k. Always available, helpful and present, we are lucky to have the continued backing of this local Specialty Running Store, which creates community around running. Trails to roads, adventures to personal records, the store and its friendly staff are a great source for running gear and knowledge. Fairhaven Runners helps with Chuckanut 50k bib pick up, on-site presence and prizes for our age group and raffle awards.
Terra Organic & Natural Foods - Terra helps the Chuckanut 50k source local, natural and, when possible, organic supplies for our aid stations and finish line. Because of Terra, we are able to offer high quality eats within the race budget. Also known as the Bellingham Public Market, the newly expanded store is leading the way in the natural food industry.
Trail Butter - Trail Butter offers up prizes and will be sharing samples of their flavors at the Chuckanut 50k finish line. A great team of athletes makes up the brand and an awesome list of ingredients makes up the product. I've taken to hauling Trail Butter around the world for supplemental, delicious calories. Be sure to give these guys a try, and see what you think!
Rocket Pure - Rocket Pure is a local company making natural body care products for athletes. Rocket Pure specializes in all-natural balms, deodorizers, sunscreens and anti-chafe products without using toxic chemicals or GMOs. Its products are ideal for athletes who like to sweat while keeping sensitive bits safe from chaffing and stinky feet from hurting marriages. Rocket Pure generously provides free samples to Chuckanut 50k participants and products for race prizes.
Headlamps, trekking poles and gloves are only the start to the product line offered by Black Diamond. High end technical gear with mountains as their history, climbing as their culture and recent inspiration from trail running you can see the quality shine through in the final products. Black Diamond has contributed oodles of great prizes for our age group awards and raffle.
Badass and Beautiful. Made in the USA. Lily Trotters is a women run company filled with energy. So many fun aspects to this small, growing brand I am super excited to share the benefits of compression, cute compression, with everyone. Lily Trotters joins the Chuckanut 50k list of supporters this year with age group prizes and Friday night fun give-aways.
Bija Chocolates - Close friends of the Chuckanut 50k, Bija once again joins the fun of the pre-race gathering and race day support. Our volunteers benefit from Bija's generous chocolate bar donation and our runners get a sampling on Friday night. This local to Bellingham brand is doing amazing work with chocolate on a global scale, one delicious bar at a time.
Wander Brewing - Wander will once again open its doors after the race to Chuckanut 50k participants and host the 26th running post-race celebration with food trucks and discounts on pints for runners with 2018 Chuckanut 50k race bibs. Additionally Wander owner Chad, is teaming up with a local coffee roaster to provide coffee, hot chocolate and cider at the start line for runners and volunteers. This will be by donation and all monies will benefit the Bellingham Girls on the Run program.
