On Saturday, May 31, “The Maniac, The Best Dam Race in Idaho” is back! Planning has been in the works for a quite awhile, and the race is ready to roll.
The Maniac offers runners and walkers two unique choices: either a 5K (3.1 miles) run/walk or a 3K (1.86 miles) run/walk experience. Participants will check-in at the Dworshak Viewpoint starting at 8 a.m., with the race beginning at 10 a.m.
Participants will follow along the outlined 3K or 5K course across the Dworshak Dam to the midpoint check-in station and then return along the course to the finish line where there will be food, drinks and other activities.
The race is open to all ages. The cost to pre-register is free for children under age five, $20 for adults, and $15 for youth ages 6 to 10. Participants can also register the day of the event, but the fee will increase $10 for race day registration. Participants 18 years of age or younger must have an adult present to sign a waiver the day of the event, and all participants must present a valid photo id the day of the race for security purposes.
All registration proceeds from this unique event will go back into the Orofino community through the operations of the Orofino Chamber of Commerce.
To pre-register, go to the Orofino Chamber of Commerce website, www.orofino.com for the registration form, pick up a flyer at a local business or call the office at 208-476-4335 and we will get you the information you need!
