Bogus Canceled

It is with great sadness that the 2022 Bogus Marathon and Half is being cancelled.

From its inception, Runtastic Events was stoked about the potential of the Bogus Marathon and Half. The course is fast and beautiful, giving runners an amazing opportunity to run down Bogus Basin Road, along the Boise River, and have an amazing finish at Julia Davis Park.

As with all of Runtastic’s events, we are committed to creating amazing experiences for our runners from start to the finish. Working on the logistics, permits, and contracts to make this race possible this year, roadblock after roadblock was hit. Usually these roadblocks are mere hurdles that Runtastic is used to and adept at solving. Unfortunately additional issues arose making it impossible for us to give you the experience you deserve and that we expect to provide. This comes after 8 months of planning for the event.

Some of these roadblocks have come because of city and county regulations, others due to current staffing shortages with contracted vendors needed for the event.

We will be providing full refunds for all registrations.

We understand this will cause inconveniences to many who have already made plans and have been training for this event. Please check your email for more information regarding the cancellation.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns, we want to make sure you are heard and taken care of.

COURSE OVERVIEW

RUNTASTIC Bogus Bogus to the Blue 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, with an amazing finish on the iconic Blue Field of Boise State Stadium.

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.
