SANDPOINT — Celebrate National Trails Day by participating in the Bay Trail Fun Run this year. This is the seventh year for the Bay Trail Fun Run, when a few hundred folks run or walk the 5K and 10K courses along scenic waterfront trails.

The family-friendly fun run is scheduled for Sunday, June 9, starting at 9 a.m. at Sandpoint City Beach. The run, 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 the Creekside Trail, alongside Sand Creek, for the 10K route.

Sign up by May 23 to be sure to get your correct T-shirt size. All entrants also are entered into a drawing to win a Festival at Sandpoint Season Pass.

While this community event intended to support efforts to maintain, improve and expand the popular shoreline trail, it attracts runners from around the region because of its scenic setting with views of the lake, creek and mountains. It’s a mostly flat course, with a mix of pavement and dirt path. Approximately 400 runners and walkers are expected to register.

All participants will receive T-shirts and goodie bags that include a coupon for a discounted post-race lunch at Trinity at City Beach. This year also features fun activities for kids at the beach during the race.

Online registration is open until noon June 8 for $25 per person over 13 years old. Kids 12 and under are free. Race-day registration is $30 per person over 13 years old, starting at 7 a.m.

Early registrants can pick up packets from 4 to 6 p.m., June 8, at the tent by Trinity at City Beach.
