Adding Tomorrows and Living Today."

Welcome to the 10th Annual Bow Lake Dam 15K/5K Race to Cure Cystic Fibrosis!
We welcome all runners, walkers, and volunteers of all ages!
Check out our 4th Annual Toddler Dash after the races! It's the cutest thing you'll see all year!
(Toddler T-shirts available for purchasing on race day!)

The origin of this race began the day after eight friends gathered to run in or support a marathon in the Fall of 2008. At breakfast the morning after the race, tired and sore but exhilarated by the previous day's excitement and joy, the soon-to-be committee brainstormed a way in which they could stretch the benefits of training to reach beyond themselves.
Personally touched by a mutual friend's daughter who lives with the challenges of Cystic Fibrosis, our new committee became determined to plan, organize, and initiate a local race to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The "Bow Lake Dam 15K/5K" is the result of that brainstorm.
Our Bow Lake crew has grown to become an even bigger team over the past 10 years and with each new year we hope to make the Bow Lake Dam Race to Cure CF bigger and better!
