Sunday 1/10/2010 is the Boise City of Trees Marathon and Half Marathon.  The start time is 8:00 a.m. for the marathon and 9:00 a.m. for the half marathon.

Boise City of Trees This is a USATF certified course and is a Boston Marathon Qualifier.  The race will be timed using chips.  These chips must not be eaten until after you have crossed the finish line.  If you lose your chip you will be shot and charged for the said chip.  The course will be marked with white powder.  This should increase the chances of seeing Paris Hilton somewhere along the course filling up her “friends” purse.

Boise downtown from Ann Morrison park The race starts and ends by the pond on Parkcenter Blvd and covers much of the Boise Downtown area running past Warm Springs Golf Course, past Barber Park, a trip through the North End past Camelsback Park and through Ann Morrison Park.  Basically you’re running around Boise, The City of Trees.

Boise Camels Back Park I have friends running in both the Half and the Full marathon  and I’ll be cheering you on until the Denver Broncos game starts.  It should be a great day for the race with an expected high of 77 F, low of 52 F and only a 10% chance of Precip, that’s rain for the layperson.   Hope to see some of you out there cheering on the runners.  I hope some of you runners have great legs.  I know you do Ryan.
