2021 Virtual Run

The Padden Mudfest is a trail run that takes place on the hilly and wooded trails around Lake Padden in Bellingham. The race is unique in offering an introduction to the muddy conditions, narrow rocky and rooty trails, and challenging hill climbs and descents usually encountered in ultra-marathons, but on a smaller and much more manageable scale. Even the 5k option is challenging, but it is very doable even for relatively young and less experienced runners. Expect narrow winding trails, steep ups and downs, rocks and roots, and—all being well—lots of sloppy and slippery mud.

Note about footwear: Trail shoes or running shoes with an aggressive tread and good lacing are highly recommended. Due to the rocky and rooty nature of parts of the course, spikes are not recommended.
