Chicken Dinner Dash 5K
November 21 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
A Thanksgiving Celebration!
We are TRULY GRATEFUL & THANKFUL for so much here in Idaho! But honestly, this unusual 2020 year has thrown us all a curveball or two, and the Treasure Valley running community is no exception. Several traditional runs in Boise and the surrounding area have been cancelled all the way into the spring of 2021. But here in a rural setting west of Caldwell, we are going to celebrate with a nice, flat 5K run on Saturday the weekend before Thanksgiving, and we invite you to join us! (You are also welcome to run the event virtually if you prefer–we can mail your shirt to you. Just send your time on the honor system.)
Chicken Dinner Road!!!
We’ve added our own special twist to this quirky 5K–you’ll get to run along World Famous “Chicken Dinner Road” as a part of the course! Participants will receive a unique long-sleeved festive Thanksgiving T-Shirt, too! Although times will be posted, we will have no award ceremonies to limit congregation of the masses and reduce risk for spreading germs at this event. Any raffle items will be pre-drawn and prepared for pickup. When you are not running, please respect the predominant social and healthful etiquette by wearing a facial mask and maintaining a 6-foot distance from others not in your immediate family or close friend circle..
The Chicken Dinner Dash is presented by Canyon Track Club, which strives to serve the people of Canyon County, Idaho and the surrounding areas of the Treasure Valley, promoting physical fitness among people of all ages through running and walking exercise. Coaches for CTC particularly encourage and teach youths to enjoy physical fitness through running and field events at an early age.
Start/Finish and Course
The Chicken Dinner Dash 5K will start at the parking area of Deer Flat Church (at 17703 Beet Road), where there is plenty of parking available. (The church has opened up the use of their indoor restroom facilities for our use as well. Thank you so much, Deer Flat Church!!!) The course heads South from Deer Flat Church on Beet Road, turns left (East) on Lonkey Road, and does a stint on Chicken Dinner Road to the turnaround, before heading back to Deer Flat Church for an exciting finish!
