About the Homestead 15

Homestead Fitness is excited to host the first annual Homestead 15! We are pleased to offer two races: 5K and 15K. This chip-timed event begins at 9am and will lead you through the quaint streets of downtown Lynden, alongside the award-winning Homestead Golf Course, down winding picturesque paths, and on the way you'll enjoy the breathtaking views of Mt. Baker as you head further out of town to experience rural Lynden. This is a race you'll be eager to add to your yearly race repertoire!

After your race, you'll be treated to refreshments and be able to peruse several booths from Homestead Fitness and other local vendors. There will also be amazing prizes and giveaways!

Online registration closes at 9am on Thursday, September 10. We are accepting day-of registrations at Homestead Fitness from 7:30 - 8:45 am.
