Haggen to Haggen 5K Fun Run & Walk Set for May 2

Registration is open for the 22nd annual community run, which supports the Greater Bellingham Running Club’s Whatcom County high school scholarship program

BELLINGHAM, Wash. — March 18, 2014 — Haggen is inviting the Whatcom County community to join in on the 22nd annual Haggen to Haggen 5K Fun Run & Walk. More than 1,300 runners and walkers – from beginners to elite – are expected to lace up on Saturday, May 2, 2015, and participate in the 3.1-mile community run.

The course, which is USA Track & Field-certified, begins at the Sehome Village Haggen store and ends at the Meridian Haggen store. Race registration is now open online at www.active.com/bellingham-wa/running/distance-runningraces/haggen-to-haggen-2015?int=.

“This race is an annual tradition for many, and we love how it brings our community together to run, walk and cheer with each other,” said John Clougher, CEO, Haggen Pacific Northwest. “We are excited to once again help support Whatcom County high school student runners through our partnership with the Greater Bellingham Running Club.”

Haggen will make a donation to its race partner, the Greater Bellingham Running Club (GBRC), to help fund four annual $1,000 scholarships for Whatcom County high school runners who are college-bound. The donation will also help provide a better quality running experience for low-income high school students through running shoe vouchers, track workouts and equipment updates.

The first place male and female runners will each receive a $75 Haggen gift card and a prize package, courtesy of Fairhaven Runners. Second place winners receive a $50 Haggen gift card, and third place winners receive a $25 Haggen gift card.

At the finish line, race participants and their friends and family can sample great products from Haggen vendors, including a number of Washington companies, such as Tony’s Coffee Co., Theo Chocolates, Erin Baker’s Wholesome Baked Goods, Organic Valley, Nature’s Path and Talking Rain.
