Race Day: All Things Go for 2008 Race to Robie Creek Half Marathon

See 2009 Robie Creek Registration Update

With February's registration meltdown now ancient history (past post), all seems set for Saturday's running of the 2008 Race to Robie Creek, the popular Boise-area trail half marathon (race site). About 2,500 lucky bib holders will toe the line for the challenging 2,000 foot climb and blazing fast 1,700 foot decent to the finish. The course is currently reported to be relatively snow- and mud-free, but the forecast for race morning calls for a chance of two to three inches of new snow in the mountains, with temperatures in the 30's and 40's.

Recent instructions from the race directors:
  • No race day bib transfers
  • Race day packet pickup is from 9:30 - 11:15am
  • All timing chips will be distributed on race day
  • A T-shirt trading zone will be set up at the race finish
  • Wear plaid, to keep with the Scottish theme
  • Non-runners who want to revel at the finish will need a bus pass for the trip
