RUNTASTIC Bogus Marathon & Half

The beautiful city of Boise is known for Trees, finger steaks, trick football plays, and the Bogus Marathon & Half. Although Bogus Basin gets its name from the gold miners who mixed gold dust with lead, there is nothing phony about the PR’s on this course.

This fast and stunningly beautiful course showcases the beauties of Boise, from the panoramic mountain vistas along Bogus Basin Road to the lush waters of the Boise River. Experience springtime in Boise on May 21, 2022.

Boise has a new rush for gold and for those with the fever, the finish awaits with glittering precious medals.

After a crazy year, your running therapy is Bogus.
