                                 ***************2022 Race Covid Protocol***************

     I will be following Covid Protocol that is required of me by my insurance and the City of Boise.  As the race gets closer I will make updates here.

     The Bogus 50/50 event includes 3 distances including Boise's first 50 Mile, a 50K and a 15 mile.  All three distances start and finish in the Fort Boise parking lot.  The 50 Mile is a race almost entirely on single track that includes some of Boise's best trails including Dry Creek and Around The Mountain.  The 50K distance is a great course in the lower Boise Foothills, it takes you on a great run of varying terrain and beautiful single track.  The 15 mile distance will include the first and last part of the 50K course. It's a great course for the novice trail runner as well as a fast course for the more avid runner. These races feature one of the best trail networks in the West.
