Join us for the 39th annual Spring Dash!
5 Miles, anywhere and any way you want to run/walk/hike, for a great cause.
Presented by: ICCU, Kootenai Health and CDA Press

We miss running with you in person downtown Coeur d'Alene, but instead of focusing on where we wish to be, we're focusing on who and how we can help.
Last year virtual Spring Dash raised over $7,500 for the CDA Covid Relief Fund. This year, we're continuing our work with ALICE and providing support in the bounce-back from a tough year. 
Though we may not be running side-by-side, we're together in this cause and a virtual race allows us to invite friends from anywhere to join us! 

Since 1982, Spring Dash has been the kickoff to the running season. Over the years, the event has been a fun run, a second-seeding qualifier for Bloomsday, a family "tot trot" and a great community event.
We hope to continue the tradition and are looking forward to watching everyone share their journey, tips, and favorite courses on social media.
So, sign up, invite your friends, and post your photos!
Don't forget to tag us and include: #SpringDashCDA #RunForALICE

Registration includes your bib and t-shirt (featuring the winning design of the high school art contest!). Be sure to keep an eye on your email for packet pickup times and locations closer to the race dates. Registrants not participating locally can arrange pack shipping at that time.

As Idaho rebounds and has recently upgraded to Stage 3 of reopening, we believe the safest course of action is to have Spring Dash be a virtual race again. We are striving to offer a healthy community activity while adapting to the challenging times we face together. We appreciate your understanding and continued support of  United Way of North Idaho's important mission. 

What is a virtual race?
You may complete the Spring Dash 5 mile course or another 5 mile course anywhere. For example, it can be on your favorite running route, trail or track, or even your treadmill. You may complete your course anytime from April 17, 2021 until April 30, 2021. Once you have completed your course simply come back to the "Results" tab on this site and click the submit results button to enter your time to be included in the event results. You may also indicate you completed the event without submitting a time. Be sure to go to the "Participant Tracking" tab on this site and download the free RaceJoy live tracking app! It has the official course route and many interactive  features to enhance your experience. Race bib and event shirt pick-up instructions will be posted on the race website listed on this page.
