Registration is now open for the 2020 Coeur d’Alene Marathon and this upcoming year, the course will be a Boston Qualifier.

That means the course has been certified by USA Track and Field. Qualifiers must be within a certain race time pertaining to their age and gender at the race in Coeur d’Alene to be accepted into the Boston race.

The Coeur d’Alene Marathon takes runners through a course along the shoreline of Lake Coeur d’Alene. The out and back course is mostly flat with a few hills around miles 4 and 7, according to World Marathons.

If you love to run, but not necessarily a full marathon, you can participate in a half marathon, 10K or 5K on race day.

The marathon kicks off early in the morning on May 24, 2020 in McEuen Park.
