Parking is available around Albertson's Stadium. Please plan on paying for parking if you're using the stadium parking lot.

Participants will cross aid stations roughly every two miles on the course. Aid Stations will be equipped with the following water, sports drink, GU gels, and fuel. Please do not litter on course and dispose of your trash at the aid stations. We do have a team that sweeps the entire course for garbage post race, but please make their life easier and do not litter on the course.

We will have an athlete only gear check corral in which athletes will drop their bag at a pre-labeled area based on their bib number. Volunteers will staff the entry and exit of the gear check area to make sure bags match the bib number of each runner entering and exiting. Bib numbers will be required to enter and exit the gear check corral. For safety purposes volunteers may ask to look inside of gear bags.

CLEAR BAG POLICY at Albertson's Stadium
As a reminder, fans are permitted to bring one clear plastic or vinyl bag, package or container that does not exceed 12 x 6 x 12 inches; a one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag; or a purse, bag or clutch no larger than 4.5 x 6.5 inches. Prohibited bags include but are not limited to large purses, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, luggage of any kind, computer bags or any bag larger than the permissible size. There will be a complimentary Bag Check at each entry for those customers who mistakenly bring prohibited items to the stadium. 

FOR ALL Guidance for attending an event at Alberston's Stadium -

You all have the best cameras in the palm of your hand. While race pictures of yesteryear were so cool, it's hard to justify the expense to our amazing photography professionals with the hope of you purchasing a race picture. Simply, it's just not worth it for us to bring folks out there. So you're on your own!!! We will have a live stream at the finish!!!

Portable toilets and hand washing stations will be available in the start / finish area and at each aid station.

While we LOVE the Blue. We can't have ALL the fun on that expensive real estate.. and likely, it'll be cold. So we're head over to our favorite post race place at Payette Brewing in downtown Boise. It's a short walk, or a quick drive. Payette Brewing is a premier post-race location for your after race celebrations. We'll have awards on the main stage, a large fire pit and of course... all your post-race beverages. Seriously, there's no better post-race location.

We're just not good at mass emails so please take the time to look outside of your inbox for race information. If you have any questions/concerns email and we're real quick to respond. Two days before the race we are extremely limited to email access and your last minute questions may go unanswered as we're out getting ready for you.
