Festivities include t-shirts, water bottles and other freebies for all participants, great awards for top finishers in each age group, a reduced priced racers’ lunch menu at Trinity at City Beach Restaurant, and the chance to win fantastic raffle items.

Back for a 2nd year in a row – Family Team Category – grab at least two other family members, come up with a family team name and register as a team online by June 8. The top three fastest teams (as determined by averaging the times of the three fastest team members) in both the 5k and 10k races will win awards.

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 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.
