BELLINGHAM, Wash. –¬†Eight runners leaving Bellingham Bay on this¬†morning plan to run to Mount Baker where they’ll hike and climb to the summit.

That’s the half-way point. Then they have to return.

It’s a 108-mile course expected to take about 40 nonstop hours.

The Bellingham Herald reports Daniel Probst of Cascade Mountain Runner organized the run with the goal of launching a new Mount Baker Ultra Marathon next year.

The 35-year-old Bellingham man attempted the run twice last year but didn’t complete it.
