Geographers James Senseney and Menno Sennesael competed in the 2017 Ski to Sea race earlier this year. Ski to Sea is an impressive multisport relay race composed of eight modes of transport, beginning on Mt. Baker and ending in Bellingham Bay. The event begins with cross-country skiiing on Mt. Baker and continues with a leg of downhill skiing or snowboarding. Farther down the mountain toward Puget Sound, the race continues with a running segment, which James Senseney completed. This is followed by road biking, canoeing, cyclocross biking, and finally sea kayaking in Bellingham Bay. Menno Sennesael completed the race's final leg in a sea kayak.
