About This Activity

The Scenic Half Marathon course is a sight to be seen and ran! With fantastic views from the Long Bridge, stunning surroundings of Lake Pend Oreille and the picturesque setting of charming downtown Sandpoint, Idaho the Scenic Half Marathon is unlike any other race around.

The route is great for elite and beginning runners alike, as the majority of the course is flat and fast. Rounding across paved pathways, down bike trails and through city streets the course is a safe, secure and satisfying experience!

Each round of races begins at Sandpoint City Beach where runners and their spectators may gather ahead of time to take in the sunshine and surroundings. Ample free parking is provided all across Sandpoint, allowing participants to enjoy everything the area has to offer.

The Scenic Half Marathon sets Sandpoint apart as a destination location for runners, adventurists, tourists and fitness gurus alike!
