Feb 18

Well it’s that time of the year again, The Race to Robie Creek is near.  Start time is at noon on April 16th, 2011.

Robie Creek 2011 Registration for this event is February 21st 2011 at Noon.  If you are thinking about registering, take the day off and get on a computer with a fast connection.  This race sells out in hours and the traffic usually takes the servers down a couple times so get you F5 button ready to refresh that page.

For those of you that have run this race before no explanation is necessary but for those that haven’t, bring your hill climbing legs.  This race starts off with a mile around Fort Boise park and then takes off towards Aldape Summit reaching mile 8.5.  After that you have a grueling downhill except for the last mile where it flattens out.  By then your legs are trashed.

Here is my blog entry from last years race which has more description of the race.  I’m still trying to decide if I’m running this race or Dry Creek with the Ogden Marathon coming up again in May.  Good luck getting in and good luck in the race. 

You can view the route here.  If you run your mouse through the elevation it will show you where you are at that elevation.
