HONORING Dick HOYT & Rick Hoyt

In the spring of 1977, Rick told his father he wanted to participate in a 5-mile benefit run for a Lacrosse player who had been paralyzed in an accident.

Far from being a long-distance runner, Dick agreed to push Rick in his wheelchair, and they finished all 5 miles, coming in next to last.

That night, Rick told his father, “Dad, when I’m running, it feels like I’m not handicapped.”

This realization was just the beginning of what would become over 1,000 races completed, including marathons, duathlons, and triathlons (6 of them being Ironman competitions.) Consider reading their story next:

Becoming Involved is Simple, Here's How:

The goal of Team Hoyt Coeur d'Alene is to encourage our community with (and without) disabilities to come out and race with us. A runner-athlete is paired with a rider-athlete for every race. This allows for inclusion, and the seemingly impossible is made possible. 

With Team Hoyt Coeur d'Alene, there are no strangers. Our runners and rider-athletes share in the friendship and smiles and show up to have fun every race season!

Volunteer as a RUNNER-ATHLETE

We welcomes all friends and family, participators in races to join Team Hoyt Coeur d'Alene! You are not required to participate in races to be a supporting member of the team. 

As a runner-athlete, you may push choose to push rider-athletes or simply just show up, run alongside your team. Alternatively, show up and support your team by cheering them on the sidelines or lending a helpful hand. You rock!

Join in as a RIDER-ATHLETE

Being a part of our teams means more then racing together. When you choose to join your Coeur d'Alene team, you're joining a team of caring individuals in your community who love to get out and have fun in the great outdoors together! 

As a rider-athlete, you are paired with a runner-athlete during races you sign up to race in. Your runner-athlete buddy will assist you through the race and help you to reach the finish line, regardless of ability!
