The June 24 Ford Ironman Triathlon in CdA./Bartholdt
Throughout most of June we watched the rain, it's true. There were some nice days of course, and some landmark events in North Idaho worth mentioning despite the belated thumbs up.
Around the third weekend of June for the past several years, the Ford Ironman Coeur d’Alene Triathlon starts off with a two-loop, 2.4 mile swim in beautiful Lake Coeur d’Alene. The 112 mile bike course takes athletes through rural northern Idaho and the marathon run course, known for its spectator support, is the highlight of the race.
A multitude of volunteers support participants, including "pointers," such as this mom and 5-year-old (above) who made sure athletes took the right path to the finish line.
