Race Alert: Robie Creek Half-Marathon

See 2009 Robie Creek Registration Update

After the online registration debacle of last year, the directors of the very popular Race to Robie Creek half marathon in Boise, ID (race site) are so far keeping mum on registration plans for this year's event. Referred to, with at least slight hyperbole, as the "toughest half marathon in the Northwest," Robie Creek frustrated many potential runners during registration for the 2007 race, as the servers at ground to a halt from very high traffic. The race took over 20 hours to fill. With full-functioning servers, it likely would have gone in minutes. No word yet when this year's plans will be announced for the April 19 event. When they are, Run Junkie will let you know.

Postscript: (January 23, 2008) Registration day has been set for February 18, 2008. See new post (post).
