NEW THIS YEAR: Toddler Dash!!

Truly a family event, this year the Bow Lake Dam Committee is proud to present the first annual Toddler Dash! Following the 5K awards ceremony, we invite all young children to participate in the Toddler Dash!

It will be a short course marked off by cones in the church area. Toddlers will enjoy a free popsicle following their race. Also, toddler size t-shirts will be available for sale!

Thank you and welcome to our site. The proceeds of this event will go entirely to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The stated mission of the CF Foundation is to: "assure the development of the means to cure and control cystic fibrosis and to improve the quality of life for those with the disease."

The origin of this race began the day after eight friends gathered to either run in or support a marathon in the fall of 2008. At breakfast the morning after the race, tired and sore, but exhilarated by the previous day's excitement and joy, the soon-to-be committee brainstormed a way in which they could stretch the benefits of training to reach beyond themselves.

Personally touched by a mutual friend's daughter, who lives with the challenges of Cystic Fibrosis, our new committee became determined to plan, organize and initiate a local race to benefit the CF Foundation. The "Bow Lake Dam 15k/5k" is the result of our brainstorm. The 7TH annual event will happen at Bow Lake in Strafford, NH on Saturday June 6th, 2015. Registration takes place between 8:00am and 9:30am at the Grange Hall, located at the intersection of Water Street and Province Road.
