Ski to Sea draws thousands of athletes to Whatcom County


Ski to Sea brought in athletes from around the Pacific Northwest to compete in the classic relay on Sunday, May 26.

Birch Equipment earned its third first-place finish in as many years, beating out another three-time champion Boomer’s Drive-In – and a few hundred other teams – with a time of 6:07:05.

2024 U.S. Olympic paddler Jonas Eckler, from Bellingham, earned the “Top Gun” award in the sea kayak leg, posting the race’s fastest time of 37:17.6 for Beavers Tree Service.

The seven-leg, ski, bike, canoe, paddle and footrace drew thousands of spectators across the county.
