Sandpoint’s Bay Trail Fun Run is a Rite of Spring

The Bay Trail Fun Run has become an annual rite of spring in Sandpoint, where a few hundred runners and walkers cover the 5K and 10K courses along scenic waterfront trails. The family-friendly fun run or walk is scheduled for Sunday, June 9, this year, starting at 9 a.m. at Sandpoint City Beach. The event, a fundraiser for the Friends of the Pend d’Oreille Bay Trail, follows the Bay Trail out and back for the 5K course and continues on along the Creekside Trail, which follows Sand Creek, for the 10K route. This community event supports efforts to maintain, improve, and expand the popular Shoreline Trail and attracts runners from around the region because of its scenic setting with views of the lake, creek, and mountains and a mostly flat course with a mix of pavement and dirt path. All participants will receive T-shirts and goodie bags that include a coupon for a discounted post-race lunch at Trinity at City Beach. //
