Run Like a Dam Maniac May 1

   The Orofino High School Health Occupation Students of America and Orofino Track and Field are sponsoring the first annual Run Like a Dam Maniac fun run on Saturday, May 1 at 10 a.m.

   It will be a 5K/3.1 mile run starting and finishing at the Dworshak Dam Visitors Center and going across Dworshak Dam. Early registration is $15, and race day registration is $20 per person.

   Participants can register at, or by picking up a race flyer at local businesses and mailing to the address listed. The race begins at 10 a.m., and registration the morning of the race will start at 8:30 a.m.

   Because the US Army Corps of Engineers is allowing the event to go across the top of Dworshak Dam, participants will be required to show identification at check-in, and will not be allowed to carry a back pack or other such items across the dam. Participants can take a camera and water bottle across the dam, but nothing else.

   Participants will receive a commemorative t-shirt, and other items with registration and awards will be given for age groups as determined by registration.

   For more information please contact Scott Schochler at 208-816-8912.
