Marathon Course Description:
The course begins and ends at North Idaho College. At an elevation of 2391 feet, the 26.2 mile course starts with a large flat loop through the city of Coeur d'Alene. Heading back into downtown, the runners will turn onto the Centennial Trail. This is the start of an out-and-back along Lake Coeur d'Alene with one significant hill (100ft gain over 1/4 mile) at approx mile 14.5 and more gradual hill on the return at mile 18. The course finishes through beautiful neighborhoods, City Park and back along the Spokane River to the start/finish area.
Half-Marathon Course Description:
The 13.1-mile course also begins and ends at North Idaho College. The course splits from the marathon runners at 7th Street in downtown, turning south instead of north (Please pay attention at this point or you could end up running a full marathon!). The course heads east on Mullan Ave onto the Centennial Trail and then turns south at Cd'A Lake Drive (22nd Street south). The route follows the same path as the marathon, but runs a shorter out-and-back, reversing at the summit of the Bennett Bay hill, and following the same course as the marathon to the finish.
5K Fun Run/Walk:
The 5K course starts and ends at North Idaho College and loops around the Dike Road and City Park. There will be a timing clock at the finish line, but no official times or awards will be given out.
