The 5K course is 3.1 mile running route that takes you along the beautiful shores of Cda Lake out toward North Idaho College and back.

Each participant will receive a medal. Strollers are welcome but please leave your pets at home. Also, for safety reasons, please leave your headphones at home. The will be volunteers and bright duct tape along the course to help guide you. All ages and abilities welcome. 100% of you registration money will go toward the elementary school of your choice in School District #271. The 5K start time is 9am. The 1 mile fun run is a shorter fun run distance running/walking option for kids and parents alike. The 1 mile fun run will start at 8:30am. Prizes will be given to the top 3 male and female finishers.
