    I didn’t run as well as I expected here. The course had one long, gradual hill (mile 7 to 8) which led to the turnaround point. So then you got to run down the long gradual hill for a mile. There were some smaller rolling hills too.

    When you run near the lake the views are great. But when you aren’t near the lake, the views are like any other race where you run through neighborhoods or through parks. I guess I just expected more spectacular views throughout having read some other reviews. It was certainly not as beautiful as the Grand Teton Half I ran they next Saturday.

    The organization was fine. The expo was in a set of stores and was small but the organizers were nice and helpful. The race shirt was a nice long sleeve and the medals were nice but not overwhelming.

    Overall, I still think it was a good choice for my race in Idaho.

    This is a small race, sweet, beautiful, friendly folks and a great place to hang out before and after. There are only a handful of small hills and the race is primarily on the lake or river, so great views!

    The race was 1/2 a mile longer than 26.2. It was very disheartening to get to the 26.2 mile point and still have to run an extra half mile to get to the finish. Also, there was no food or snacks leftover for some of the marathoners crossing the finish line. Just a water station. The beer was put away by the time I crossed the finish line. Not cool. Marathoners worked twice as hard as the half marathoners and it would be nice to at least have some post race food SET ASIDE for full marathoners—regardless of their finishing time.

    The scenery is absolutely gorgeous, I’m a local though so might be partial 😉 lots of aid stations and bathrooms along the route. Inclines are brutal but last just long enough to be over right when you think you can’t do it anymore. I’m not a great runner though. You’ll feel very accomplished when you finish 🙂

    Since you’re local what things are there to do for us visiting Idaho for the first time. I’m looking for a race-cation

    Starts in the park and runs along the lake. It loops twice, so you go out to Higgins point and turn around twice. That sends you over a large hill twice. Not a flat course, make sure you have your hill work in for this.
