TAKE THE FREE SHUTTLE TO THE RACE
The Bellingham Kiwanis Green Team for the Ski to Sea Race has arranged for a shuttle bus to run continuously from the West Entrance (Beach Swim Area Parking) to the race course at the East entrance between 8:00AM and 4:30PM. All volunteers, parents, spectators, and racers are encouraged to use this FREE shuttle to avoid the parking rush at Lake Padden. You will be turned away once the east entrance is full so plan on extra time if you have to take the shuttle.
