Ride for ALICE
Aug 5 all-day

Join us Saturday, August 5, 2017, for a scenic ride (route to be finalized soon). Enjoy free coffee from Longboard Coffee Co. before heading out and then return to Coeur d’Alene for lunch and prize drawings. Each registered participant will receive a commemorative gift!

Funds raised will help low income families by improving the accessibility and quality of affordable child care. Our ALICE project uncovered the fact that child care is the most expensive item on a family of four’s monthly budget. Low income families are frequenly forced to choose sub-standard or unlicensed care for their children. Help us raise awareness and funds for ALICE families in our community and enjoy a great ride at the same time!

The first (hopefully annual) ride for ALICE will consist of a morning meet-up and ride followed by lunch with prize drawings. Check back for more details and information! If you’re interested in helping plan the ride, contact Mark Tucker at 208.667.8112. Sponsorships are needed!

Coeur d’Alene Triathlon / Duathlon @ Coeur d'Alene City Park
Aug 12 @ 7:00 am

(2016 information)

The Coeur d’Alene Triathlon and Duathlon has been one of the most scenic races in the Northwest since 1984, hence the nickname, “The Scenic Challenge”. This year marks the 33nd anniversary of the race which will be held Saturday, August 12, 2017

The “Sprint Distance Triathlon” that was recently added was a huge success! We’re going to keep it, and as before, it will take off right after the Olympic race begins. The Scenic Sprint consists of a 500-yard swim, a 13-mile bike ride, and a 3.1-mile (5K) run. The sprint course will have women and men-specific wave starts to give novice triathletes a sense of confidence and safety.

The traditional Olympic distance (1.5K swim) and the Sprint distance (500 yards swim) both take place at Independence Point on Lake Coeur d’Alene, a body of water that stretches 30 miles long and up to 3 miles wide. All the bike courses follow Coeur d’Alene Lake Drive. For Olympic distance triathlon riders and Duathlon riders going the full 40K, the race leads to Mullan Trail Road for a challenging uphill course.

The run courses travel north along the Centennial Trail and the Spokane River. There are two turn-around points along the Centennial Trail: the 5K turn-around is in front of the University of Idaho/LCSC Harbor Center, and the 10K turn-around is on the Centennial Trail under the Seltice Way overpass. The course ends at the finish line in Coeur d’Alene City Park at the Triathlon Village adjacent to Lake Coeur d’Alene
