The Bellingham Distance Project is an all-women elite development racing team based in Bellingham. Founded in 2013, BDP was established to provide elite and sub-elite female distance runners with the opportunity to train with a highly competitive club team after college. The goal of this team is to prepare athletes for track, the Olympic Trials, Olympics, National Trail Championships and other competitive races as well as to support and encourage one another beyond racing.

Proceeds from the Saturday, July 2nd K2K help aid Bellingham Distance Project, a local, nonprofit, post-collegiate, all women’s racing team, compete on the national stage, putting Bellingham on the map as an incredible place to train, race and live. The women of BDP balance working full time with volunteering, training and racing. In balance with their hard work, they like to play hard too.
