About The Boise River Marathon / Half Marathon

The Boise River Half Marathon is one of the most scenic races in Idaho. The course starts at Ann Morrison Park and follows the scenic banks of the Boise River, taking runners through lush forests, open meadows, and along calm stretches of river. Along the way there are plenty of opportunities to take in views of downtown Boise and other attractions such as Zoo Boise and Julia Davis Park.

For those running for a personal best or just out for a leisurely jog, this race has something for everyone. With an elevation gain/loss of only 478 feet throughout the 13 mile route, even novice runners can enjoy themselves on this relatively flat course. Additionally, due to its location near downtown Boise there is always lots of support from spectators along certain parts of the route – making it an especially enjoyable experience!

Held annually in April (usually around mid-month), participants should expect pleasant temperatures during their run; typically ranging between high 50sF to low 80sF with some humidity present but nothing too extreme. Runners will also be treated to mostly sunny skies with occasional light showers possible – perfect conditions for a great race day!

Finally, what really sets apart this half marathon from others is that it’s part of an event series known as “Adventures Underfoot” which includes multiple races over two days including a 10k trail run on Saturday followed by either a full or half marathon on Sunday morning – giving participants more than one option if they want something different than your typical road race!

Overall I would highly recommend participating in the Boise River Half Marathon if you are looking for an enjoyable yet challenging experience surrounded by stunning scenery – all while having tons fun doing it!
