Join Priest Lake Marathon and 50K
An off-pavement running adventure through the Panhandle National Forest. The scenery of a trail race, but on drivable dirt forest road with full course support like a road race. All runners beginner to elite love this course for its scenic trail run-like experience, but on the non-technical running surface of compact dirt Forest Service Roads. Run along the lakeshore of pristine Priest Lake, through groves of lush forest, huge old-growth cedar trees, and big views of the rugged Selkirk Mountains.
Media Views: "a perfect introduction to running on dirt. Fire roads are optimal trail running 101 material: They are wider than trails, generally well packed, and without the treacherous obstacles of large rocks and roots that trail runs can boast….the perfect in-between race"
This course gives 26.2 runners some of the most scenic wilderness views anywhere! For the marathoner looking to ditch the pavement and get a trail run fix without taking off their beloved road running shoes, Priest Lake gives all the scenery of a trail race with lush cedar forests, lakeshore running, and big mountain views, but on compacted dirt forest road. Enjoy the scenery and focus on your run, not technical trail. Priest Lake has become a destination run for marathoners across the nation looking for an Idaho marathon to make thier 50 state goal, and our close proximity to the Canadian border makes it an easy choice for runners in nearby British Columbia and Alberta. An annual favorite for our Marathon Maniac friends! Get a Maniac discount and Maniac finisher medal lanyard.
