Runners will start the race at Snake River Landing near BBSI. The course then heads along the Snake River on the Idaho Falls Greenbelt Trail, which you’ll remain on for the next several miles as you make your way north along the west banks of the river. After running through Russ Freeman Park, the route will take you back along the east side of the river all the way back to Snake River Landing. The three courses will all overlap some but will be marked by different colored arrow stickers on the ground. Corners will be manned by volunteers as available. The start and finish line will be the same.
There will be three water/aid stations available for the half marathon, two for the 10k, and one for the 5k. Aid stations will have water and gel nutrition. They will be manned by clients of the Development Workshop and sponsors.
The finish area will have a recovery space with water, fresh fruit and bread. Family and supporters are welcome.
Award winners will be announced as soon as possible, likely around 10 am. Awards will be available as soon as winners are announced. Please check your time before leaving the finish line to see if you are a winner and pick up awards promptly.
