Celebrate National Trails Day with the 3rd Annual Bay Trail Fun Run. This may be the prettiest and most fun run you participate in all year! Join us to help protect a treasured waterfront trail with your choice of a 5K or 10K mostly flat trail run along the shores of stunning Lake Pend d'Oreille and Sand Creek. Starting at Sandpoint's City Beach, participants will follow a mostly unpaved, shoreline path on the Pend d'Oreille Bay Trail. 5K runners will return to the finish line where they started, in front of the Best Western Edgewater Resort on Sandpoint's City Beach, while 10K runners will continue on the paved Sand Creek trail that curves along creekside until they too return back to the finish line. Breathtaking views of the lake, creek and mountains await.
The event includes profesional timing and a professionally measured course, silent auction, kids activities, free registration for kids 12 and under, awards for all age groups, a specially-priced runners lunch, complimentary massages, and a huge dose of great community spirit.
Proceeds from the run benefit the Friends of the Pend d'Oreille Bay Trail and the Idaho Conservation League and their efforts to protect, expand and steward a stunning shoreline trail on Lake Pend Oreille. All registered adults receive a complimentary one-year membership to the Idaho Conservation League and the satisfaction of supporting this vital community project.
