ICL and Friends of Pend d'Oreille Bay Trail are teaming up for the 2nd Annual Bay Trail Fun Run/Walk scheduled for Sunday, June 8.
Last year's event was a huge success, with over 300 runners and walkers participating. This year's run will be better than ever with a few new additions including professional chip timing and immediate race results. Event festivities include live music, t-shirts and swag for all participants, great awards for top finishers in each age group, a special racers lunch menu at Trinity Restaurant and the chance to win silent auction items such as a custom, beautifully restored and hand-painted WWII era cruiser bike, a race and restore package and summer fun packages.
The Bay Trail Fun Run benefits the Friends of Pend d'Oreille Bay Trail and ICL, and our efforts to preserve and enhance our region's treasured waterfront trail.
The fun run/walk takes place along the shores of Lake Pend Oreille and Sand Creek. This mostly flat run—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 and 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. 10K competitors continue for an additional out-and-back leg, on the paved byway trails that curve along the east shore of Sand Creek until they too return to the finish line.Event schedule and times
