The Race to Robie Creek
is one of Boise's longest-standing endurance athletic traditions. This half-marathon pain train takes runners from Fort Boise to Shaw Mountain Road. From there, it's a 13-mile race to a massive after-party at the Robie Creek Campground in the Boise National Forest.
It's one of the most grueling physical challenges in town, and completing it earns runners swag and bragging rights.
This year, the race is set to take place Saturday, April 18, but registration for the event starts tomorrow—Monday, Feb. 16, beginning at noon. Race registration
fills up fast online, so don't be late.
As always, race organizers are up front about the difficulty of the "the toughest race in the Northwest":
THIS IS NOT YOUR NORMAL HALF MARATHON! We are asking that participants be capable of finishing our event in under 4 hours. In year’s past we have had race participants take longer than 6 hours. Please do not put yourself or others at risk be respectful and honor the race as well as others.
Consider yourself warned, informed and inspired.
