The fun run/walk takes place along the shores of Lake Pend Oreille and SandCreek. This mostly flat route—which starts at Sandpoint’s City Beach—takes you out and back on the region’s newest unpaved trail, the Pend d’Oreille Bay Trail. It features stunning views of the lake, creek and white capped mountains. 5K competitors return to where they started, in front of the Best Western Edgewater Resort on Sandpoint’s City Beach. Before returning to the finish line, 10K competitors continue for an additional out-and-back leg on the paved byway trails that curve along the east shore of Sand Creek.
