This is the inaugural Bogus 50/50. The 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, this is the same course as the Foothills 50K Frenzy. The 15 mile distance will be the first and last part of the 50K course. These races feature one of the best trail networks in the West.
The 50 Mile course winds it's way from the lower foothills up to Bogus Basin and back using some of the most beautiful trails in the state. The 50 Mile has an elevation gain of approximately 8382 feet. Click here to see the written course directions and here to see the course profile.
