What does a virtual Christmas Run look like?
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 13-20th. You get to decide if you want to run in snow or what for a warmer day, it’s your race on your day. You can print your own bib number, use RaceJoy to track your run for GSP results or you manually enter your results or just say you finished.
Costume Contest: The annual Christmas Costume Contest will be held virtual with the help of Lite FM. More details to come.
Courses: Run the official courses in downtown Boise or run out your backdoor or around the neighborhood.
