1.    WAIVERS:  

  • Everyone participating in the Run this year needs to sign the waiver.  Please print and bring your signed copies to one of the t-shirt pick up sites (see information below at #3). Click here for the waiver.

2.    PARKING:  

  • This year, Run parking is available at the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) in the NW portion of their parking lot at 3311 W State Street.
  • Shuttle vans will transport participants between ITD and the Run registration area at Veteran’s Park. Volunteers will be on-site at ITD to assist you.

  • Notice has been given by Park & Rec that there is construction on the Greenbelt next to Boise Cascade Lake. Unfortunately that means  the Run and Family Stroll routes will have to be combined. Race organizers are asking all walkers to keep to the right of the path to avoid runners returning to the finish line. For Run and Stroll routes, click on the map.
