Who would be crazy enough to run for 55 miles, especially when a lot of the route is on a glacier of a volcanic mountain? If you’re in Concrete this week, you can meet 35 people who are just that crazy! 🙂
On Sunday, June 3 at 12:00 a.m., the second annual Mt. Baker Ultra Marathon will take off. It’s a 55 mile out and back foot race from our Town Center to Mount Baker’s Sherman peak at 10,160ft (3,097m).
The race draws its inspiration from the century-old Mount Baker Marathon that lasted for three years from 1911-1913. You can watch a film about that historical race at the Concrete Theatre on Saturday, June 2 at 7:30 p.m. See more.
After the film the 2018 runners will meet in the theatre and you can sit in on their pre-race meeting, led by Race Director Dan Probst.
For more information about the events at the theatre, please contact Valerie Stafford, (360) 466-8754.
