After working long and hard to make the Boise Marathon happen as a certified Boston and New York qualifying event, the City of Boise has informed us that they will not be issuing permits to allow the Marathon to happen in 2020. It is with a heavy heart that the Boise Marathon team must cancel this event for the 2020 year.
All participants will be offered full refunds or the opportunity to run the marathon virtually and roll their registration over into next year’s event, free of charge.
Packet pick up will be the day before the race. Your swag, race bib will all be at our expo. Take a look at our Plan Your Race page for the full details.
Timing chips are affixed to the back of your race bib. This is already done for you.
Yes, you can wear headphones, however, you must be able to hear all athlete instructions from course marshals, fellow athletes and remain courteous to other runners.
Yes, we encourage moms and dads to run with their strollers.
No, we encourage runners of all ages to participate as long as they can complete the course within the specified time limit for each event.
No, due to the congestion on the course we do not allow dogs to participate in this event, but we do have other dog-friendly events.
Typically we have water and energy bars available at all aid stations. On half and full marathons we also provide a selection of snacks on the last half of each course, as well as Skratch Labs at each station!
All finishers get a medal for all distances as well as a t-shirt.
