The course is 50-kilometers point to point (31.07 miles) from Council to Middle, Idaho along the scenic Weiser River Trail. The trail is a railroad bed that has been converted to a National Recreation Trail. The trail surface consists of stony railroad ballast, dirt, and some paved crossings as you come into towns. The trail runs alongside the Weiser River, through canyons and across open farmland. There is very little elevation change on the course. The course is ideal for this early season event and excellent for runners of any ability – beginners to veterans. In addition to the solo 50K, we also have a 50K relay. So no excuses not to run it! The Relay is open to teams of runners from 2-5 people.
If you plan on fewer than 5 people on your relay-contact the RD before registering for a pro-rated registration per number of people running.
Must Register by 04/08/24 by NOON to be guaranteed Swag
You may leave a morning clothes bag at the start and we will get it to the finish for you!
All runners and volunteers will receive a post race meal with their bib or voucher. If you have friends or family wanting to eat too you can purchase additional meal vouchers at registration or a voucher for $15.00 at the Pulse tent on the day of the race or when you register.
