What is the Ski to Sea Race?

For those who might be new to the area or the event, the Ski to Sea Race is an incredible multi-sport relay race that kicks off at the snowy peak of Mt. Baker and winds its way down to the waters of Bellingham Bay. The race includes a series of seven thrilling legs:

  1. Cross-country ski
  2. Downhill ski (which starts with a challenging uphill climb)
  3. Downhill run (an exhilarating 8-mile descent)
  4. Road bike (a grueling 42-mile ride)
  5. River canoe (a scenic yet tough paddle on the Nooksack River)
  6. Mountain bike (an adventurous ride from Ferndale to Bellingham)
  7. Kayak (a final push across Bellingham Bay to Marine Park)

The race has deep roots in our community, with its origins dating back to 1911-1913 and its modern revival in 1973 during the Blossom Time Festival. The name “Ski to Sea” reflects Bellingham’s unique geography, where you can experience both mountain and sea within an hour.

Our Journey with the Ski to Sea Race

Our journey with the Ski to Sea Race began over a decade ago. Each year, we’re thrilled to not only sponsor the event but also at times host a team to participate in this iconic race. In 2014, the Get Simple Box Ski team won first place in the Masters Division!

The Ski to Sea Race allows us to connect with our community in a meaningful way, support local athletes, and promote a spirit of adventure and resilience. It’s events like these that remind us why we love what we do and why we’re proud to call this area home.
