Bellingham, Washington, March 20. Andy Martin and Susannah Beck won tight races at the 18th annual Chuckanut Ridge 50K. Martin passed Erik Skaggs at about the halfway mark and pulled away to a three-minute win. Adam Campbell finished strong to take third.

Susannah Beck took a large early lead and held off a fast-closing Ellie Greenwood for the win. Both women finished under the previous course record. 287 runners finished the unofficial season opener of the Pacific Northwest racing season.
