Full Marathon

Qualify for Boston with the flat, fast course!

Fun race – this is a dress-up marathon! This race takes place Halloween weekend, and our theme is Wizard of Oz.

We have flattened out our course for 2019, now with only 300 feet of gain on the entire marathon course.

The steepest climbs are the footbridges crossing the Boise River!
