We are so excited to be partnering with the United States Air Force Academy’s Idaho Parent Club on this inaugural event to raise funds our Military Working Dogs of the 366th Security Forces Squadron Mountain Home AFB. I hope you will join us in making this a successful event for our Military Working Dogs. Our MWD are a great asset to our military and receive very limited funding from the Department of Defense for their much needed supplies, kennels or training. With your help we can show them how we appreciate them!
These dogs finish their training at the Mountain Home AFB's kennel to deploy as military soldiers and for the United States Secret Service (USSS) protecting VIPs all over the world. They go through Dog Training School (DTS) consisting of: Basic Obedience Course (OB), Building Search, Scouting, Patrol work (attack portion) and finally with explosive and narcotic detection. Training is as close to real life military situations as possible. The MWD must be constant with all tasks in order to graduate. Once they graduate they and their Handler, an active military soldier or a member of the Secret Service, deploy per their military orders.
Packet Pickup: Packet Pickup will be at The Pulse Running and Fitness Shop Thursday September 15th and Friday September 16th from 11-6. Same Day packet pickup will be available 1 hour prior to your race. All racers must check in prior to the start of their race to pick up their chip.
The 50K relay course is a 6.25 mile looped course that you get to run with 4 of your favorite friends. We will start at the Nordic Lodge, run through the parking lot at Simplot to Deer Point, take Deer Point to Brewers Byway take the new Bogus trail back down to Nordic Lodge transition area. This is where the handoff to the next team mate will be. Total distance will be 31.25. We're also offering a solo distance for those who want a 50K distance on their own!

This is a great course with accessible to all! It starts and ends at the Nordic Lodge for all the little ones that want to come join the fun!
All courses include multiple uphill and downhill sections. The terrain is of moderate difficulty, providing a challenge to runners, but not too hard for first-timers or those joining us from the Challenged Athletes Foundation. This is a green race so you will need to bring a collapsible cup for the aid station. No refunds will be provided, including in the event of a cancellation outside of the organizers control.
