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!

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 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.

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 children and youth 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!

Canyon Track Club–Our Purpose

The purpose of Canyon Track Club is to serve the people of Canyon County and the surrounding areas of the Treasure Valley, promoting physical fitness among people of all ages through running and walking exercise. Our goal is to promote a positive environment where students of all ages can compete in Track and Field, growing not only in their physical abilities but growing confidence. Coaches for Canyon Track Club try to make a strong, lasting impact for each athlete. We encourage our athletes to give their best each and every day not only to get better for themselves but to positively influence other athletes.
Canyon Track Club members and participants have included athletes from Caldwell, Vallivue, Skyview, Homedale, Ontario, Greenleaf, Middleton, Emmett, Parma, Kuna, and Ridgevue schools, as well as numerous private schools, charter schools, and home school associations. Many former club members have gone on to compete at the collegiate level this decade–some winning All-Conference Events, competing in Finals at National Events, and some winning All-American Academic Awards as well.

Canyon Track Club–Our Story

Canyon Track Club was founded in 2005 by Brian Faulks and Jim Trapp. It started out with just a hand-full of runners, but in a few short years grew into over 50 athletes. We have had athletes achieve many different accolades through running at Canyon Track Club such as All-State and All-American Honors as well as significant Academic Achievement Honors in the classroom.
There are no paid coaches for Canyon Track Club, Inc. Coaches for the Club have a combined 100+ seasons of coaching experience in all aspects of Track and Field. Coaches offer their time and effort, working with athletes to develop and improve their fitness and overall technique. Coaches share expertise in distance, sprints, hurdles, relays, jumps, and throwing. We strive to promote excellence by challenging our athletes to become the best that they can be, yet at the same time, we encourage them to develop running as a lifestyle habit so that they may enjoy the many health benefits of running for years to come.
