Welcome to the 12th Annual Bow Lake Dam 15K/5K Race to Cure Cystic Fibrosis!
We welcome all runners, walkers, and volunteers of all ages!
Check out our 6th Annual Toddler Dash after the races! It's the cutest thing you'll see all year!

The Bow Lake Dam 15K/5K is a 501(c)(3) event organized to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, whose mission is “to cure Cystic Fibrosis and to provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment, and ensuring access to high-quality, specialized care.” If able, some funds may also be donated to local families and individuals affected by Cystic Fibrosis.
We at Bow Lake Dam 15K/5K hope to raise awareness about Cystic Fibrosis as we continue to organize our yearly race to raise funds that may someday bring a cure.
To date we have been able to send over $100,000 to the CFF thanks to our many supporters!
Our Bow Lake crew has grown to become an even bigger team over the past 12 years and with each new year we hope to make the Bow Lake Dam Race to Cure CF bigger and better! Thank you for being a part of this wonderful event!
