Athlete Guide

  • Saturday 5/25 at McEuen Park from 11am-6pm outdoors. (420 E Front Ave, Coeur d'Alene, ID 83814)
  • Virtual runners shirts and medals will be mailed out the week following the event.
  • We understand that last minute issues come up.  For those runners that absolutely must pick-up their packet on race morning, we will offer a very limited race morning pick-up at the start line. We strongly encourage runners to pick up their packet the day before (Saturday) since we will have very limited staff to help with check-in race morning. If you must pick-up your race packet on race morning, plan ahead and arrive early, we will not be responsible for you missing your start time if you arrive last minute and are still waiting in line. 



All starts will be mass starts with chip timing.

We will have an athlete only gear check corral in which athletes will drop their bag at a pre-labeled area based on their bib number. Volunteers will staff the entry and exit of the gear check area to make sure bags match the bib number of each runner entering and exiting. Bib numbers will be required to enter and exit the gear check corral. For safety purposes volunteers may ask to look inside of gear bags. Gear check/Late checkin in will open at 5am. 


SMILE! We will have an automated camera set up at the finish line that is triggered by our timing box when you cross the finish line.  These photos will be available on the results page within 72 hours after the race. The more visible your bib number is, the easier it is for our automated software to tag your photo with your bib so you can find it easily post race. If your bib number was not visible, you can still search all the finish photos to find your photo.


There will be sponsor booths near the finisher area as well as finish food. All finishers will receive a finisher medal,  water, snacks, and marathoners and half marathoners will have more of a hearty option. Finish food is for participants only and not for spectators. Race merchandise will also be available near the finish


Portable toilets and hand washing stations will be available in the start / finish area and at each aid station.
