It has been called magic. It has been called profound.
It’s a lot to take in. We know.
At its core, it is the most beautiful footrace the world has ever seen.
…or maybe just a bunch of people running through the park in silly costumes on Thanksgiving morning. Heck we don’t really know.
But rest assured the sweet sauce that is the Thanksgiving Cross Country World Championships does not disappoint.
This is a 5.4km (3.4 mi) cross country run through Cornwall Park Thanksgiving morning. We take all comers. Run, walk, smile, wear a costume, wear your underwear. We don’t really care. The run starts at 9 AM.
Invite anyone you’d like. There will be prizes. There will be running. Unfortunately, there might be some spandex.
We are again hosting a Food Drive for Bellingham Food Bank! Suggested food donations include canned tuna & meat, peanut butter, hearty canned soup, cereal, protein bars, and protein drinks. Please bring your donation near the start line before the run. Thank you for helping us feed hungry neighbors!
XC Champs start line: Across the bridge just south of water park
*This isn’t a sanctioned event, just a bunch of people getting together to run through the trees and be thankful and what not. It’s family friendly and please no alcohol.
