Although not technically a Leg of the Ski to Sea Race, there is a lot of fun and celebration to be had at the Finish Line of the Race in Marine Park. From the large Spectator Area, you can watch a kayaker hop out of their kayak and run up the hill to the finish line and ring the famous bell after their legs have fallen asleep. The foot of Harris Avenue in Fairhaven is where everyone gathers after the race for food and fun for the entire family.
Don’t fight traffic on Ski to Sea Sunday. We encourage people to use public transportation, walk or ride their bikes to Fairhaven.
There is a WTA shuttle running between Western Washington University’s C lot on Bill McDonald Parkway at West College Way to Fairhaven. Shuttles will leave the lot every 15 minutes starting at 11:30 am race day.
WTA’s red line bus will also run every 15 minutes between downtown and Fairhaven from 7:40am-9:15pm. Cost is $1.00 each way or you can use a WTA bus pass. For more information, call 676-RIDE or visit www.ridewta.com
There is a pay parking lot across from the Ferry Terminal on Harris. We hope you enjoy watching our local athletes compete in the Ski to Sea Race.
