About the Homestead 15

Homestead Fitness is excited to host the 4th annual Homestead 15! We are pleased to offer two races: 5K and 15K. This chip-timed event begins at 8:30 am 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. Water stations and energy gels will keep you going along the way. This is a race you’ll be eager to add to your yearly race repertoire!

At the finish line there will be refreshments, amazing prizes and random giveaways, and a bouncy castle for your family to enjoy during and after the race!

All proceeds to benefit Cornerstone Christian School in Lynden, WA.
