With a route across Sandpoint’s iconic Long Bridge, offering panoramic views of Lake Pend Oreille and the surrounding mountains – what else could we call it but the ‘Scenic Half Marathon’! Well-known as an established, fun and professionally managed race, the Scenic Half Marathon attracts hundreds of runners from all across the country to participate in this annual event.
The Scenic Half Marathon hosts a trio-race event, giving participants the option to compete in a 13.1 mile Half Marathon, a 10K or a 5K. Each independent race awards age category winners and Half Marathon competitors who complete the race receive a finisher’s medal. As the benefactor, the Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce, is committed to supporting the local community and Greater Sandpoint area. By donating a portion of each registration to the non-profit organization, Community Cancer Services, the Chamber hopes to impact the charity’s mission to support women’s health issues.
