CITY OF TREES MARATHON ASSOCIATION and LES BOIS TRAIL RUNNING ASSOCIATION present
Saturday March 1st, 2014
Fort Boise Park
The Course starts and finishes at Fort Boise Park Boise Idaho 83706. The race is run completely on dirt roads. This course is an out and back, meaning you will climb to 3.1 miles and then turn around and descend back to the Start Finish Line. The course is challenging but is a great trial run for training for trail running. The race utilizes the Military Reserve Area behind Fort Boise Park. Runners will “follow the Rules of the Road” meaning the dirt road will not be closed to the public.
A link to the unofficial course map is here: http://www.usatf.org/routes/view.asp?rID=189510
The Elevation at the start is approximately 2500 Ft above sea level, and climbs just under 650 Ft before turning around for the descent.

This year The Les Bois will partner with The Arc to collect clothing items to support programs for Treasure Valley’s citizens with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Most folks think of The Arc as “that group that helps me clean out my closet when they call for clothing donations.” Many are not aware that The Arc has been serving the valley for 55 years to ensure that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families have the supports they need to live a fulfilling life. The programs include life skills development, vocational training/job placement, residential homes, and recreation. In 2010 the programs allowed over 650 area residents with developmental disabilities achieve greater levels of independence and realize their goals of where and how they learn, live, work and play. You can find out more about The Arc at www.thearcinc.org
This year, when you come to The Les Bois 10K, use this as an opportunity to weed out the closet for those items that no longer fit (due to size, style, bad memories, or whatever!). These do not need to be pristine; The Arc has the ability to fully market and recycle clothing materials in all conditions to support its programs. Just bring those to the race and we will have donation bins ready for you.
