Course Description

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.

Now at the Les Bois 10K—The ARC!!!

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.

  1. Just wanted to say thanks again for having Kam and I come run this morning. The course was a blast and the race was great. We even brought enough people to add a cheering section along the dirt road portion, which livened it up a bit.

  2. Hi Jeff!

    First of all you are an amazing Race Director! This last Saturday I got to see your passion with what you do and how you interact with everyone and I was very impressed.

    By the way…your packet pick up email made me laugh on a day I needed it.

    Thank you and kudos to a great event!!


  3. Fun race, you guys did a great job. Weather couldn’t have been better… and the muffins were super

    Hey packet pick up was also great…All in all I will do it again…

  4. John, it was good to meet you. Good luck with all your other runs this year and the marathon in October. I’m running the half marathon with my sights set on running a full next year around May.

    See ya later.

  5. Me too Jerry. I’m doing it on the long road to a Marathon this October. One more thing to cross off my bucket list.
