About The Bear Lake Trifecta – Idaho
The Bear Lake Trifecta – Idaho in St. Charles, Idaho on 8 June, 2023 is going to be an amazing event for all levels of runners. The half marathon course takes you around the beautiful Bear Lake near the Idaho/Utah state line and the views are stunning. It’s a relatively flat course with some rolling hills but nothing too strenuous so even newbie runners can enjoy it.
You’ll get to take in gorgeous scenery like never before as you run through meadows filled with wildflowers and along tree-lined paths that offer plenty of shade during those hot summer days. There are also quite a few rivers and streams that you’ll cross giving you plenty of opportunity to cool off if needed!
The typical weather at this time of year is usually sunny with highs reaching into the 80s Fahrenheit (27C). While there may be some wind coming off the lake, it will typically not be strong enough to disrupt your race pace or give any adverse effects. As far as crowds go, expect to see many locals out cheering on their friends and family who will make up most of the field for this fun event!
One thing that makes this half marathon special is its unique finisher medal; instead of just one design for all runners, each participant receives a personalized medal based on their own individual finish time which really helps commemorate your achievement after crossing that finish line! All participants also receive a commemorative t-shirt which they can proudly wear while running or afterwards while showing off their accomplishment.
Overall I would highly recommend signing up for Bear Lake Trifecta – Idaho Half Marathon because it has something for everyone from experienced racers looking for a challenge down to first-timers who want something achievable yet still rewarding experience! The route offers great views throughout plus there’s lots of support from both volunteers & spectators alike making it an unforgettable day no matter what level you’re at!
