Virtual means you don’t have to show up at the same time as everyone else. No parking issues, no standing in line for soup or bagels. You are able to run your race between Dec 13–20. You get to decide if you want to run in snow or wait for a warmer day, it’s your race on your day. You can print your own bib number, enter your results to be included in the results, or just hit finished!

Courses: Run the official courses in downtown Boise or run out your backdoor or around the neighborhood.
