I did not run this race but I am a local who has run 50+ marathons and knows how a race should be put on. I live along the race route and was disgusted by everything that I heard happened during this race. It ranged from little to no on course fluids/nutrition, poor course markings, and poor race direction.

The day following the race I went out for a run late morning and was horrified that their were still large route markers tossed to the side of the path, cups, gel packets, a water jug, and other trash not yet picked up by race staff. The event organizers even tried to say that I was lying and that the photos I posted weren’t real. I ran 13 miles the day following the marathon and another 6 the day after that collecting every little piece of trash from the race I could find. It took the directors 72 hours to finally admit that they made mistakes. If you want more details I suggest you look at The Boise Marathon Facebook page. Look at the ’21 reviews and other comments from the days after the race. It is actually quite entertaining yet sad to read. This event company called “The Go Agency” apparently took over this event this year. Stay away??? If you want to do a marathon in Boise I would recommend the YMCA Famous Potato. At least they are runners and know what they are doing.

What an incredible experience with absolutely gorgeous scenery. I thought I was prepared by doing lots of training runs at 5-6000 ft but adding another few thousand feet of elevation makes a big difference. It is a difficult course but oh so worth it. Come prepared with lots of water and food but I thought the water stops on course were good. The bus ride to the start is an adventure in itself but it all adds to making a very memorable event. Plan to come and enjoy the jaw dropping scenery, get a PW (personal worst), and save some energy for the hills at the end. The RD is very friendly as well as everyone in the town of Ennis. It is a smaller race but I never felt alone on the course and all of the other runners were encouraging of one another.

Nothing at all to complain about. This is a well run race. The medal is gorgeous and VERY heavy. Nice sized expo. There was actually some swag in my bag and not just advertisement postcards. Plenty of crowd support the entire way. A few hills here and there and a lovely downhill towards the end although it was into a headwind.

I had a wonderful time in Baton Rouge! Everything was top notch. The best part was the finish line festival! I couldn’t believe all of the local food and beer samplings. The medal was very nice. I really enjoyed the course , especially the area around LSU. Overall a great January marathon .

Very well run and organized race! Most of the race is on AFB property but there are many energetic volunteers. I really like the military presence. I love saying “thank you” to all of Air Force personnel along the course. The medals are first class! Nice sized expo. Be prepared to walk a little from the parking areas and arrive in plenty of time as there are only a few security checkpoint entrances open race morning.
