On Saturday, June 5, “The Maniac, The Best Dam Race in Idaho” is back! The Clearwater Chamber of Commerce and planning Committee have been working hard to plan this great event and now we are ready for the participants! 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 5K and 3K run/walk 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.
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 to $30 for adults and $20 for children 6 to 10. Included in the race day registration fee is a t-shirt, refreshment and snacks.
Registrants after May 14 are not guaranteed a t-shirt. Participants 18 years or age or younger must have an adult present to sign a waiver the day of the event.
PHOTO ID: All participants must present a valid photo ID the day of the race for security purposes. All registration proceeds from the event will go back into the Clearwater community through the operations of the Clearwater Chamber of Commerce. To pre-register, go to the Chamber of Commerce website, www.orofino.com for the registration form, pick up a flyer at local business, or call the office at 208-476-4335 and we will get you the information you need.
