Aderire Race to Robie Creek

Some know it as the long climb to Aldape Summit. Others see it as a “rite of spring” that arrives each year in the Boise foothills. It has been proclaimed “The Toughest Race in the Northwest". But no matter what label you put on it, the annual Race to Robie Creek is a 13.1 mile challenge to all who dare to participate.

The Race to Robie Creek Half Marathon lives up to its reputation with a steadily climbing rise in elevation from the first mile all the way to the 8.5-mile point in the race, by which point runners should feel completely exhausted, and for which they need to be sufficiently trained and prepared.

While slow and steady, the rise in elevation throughout the race is also significant — the starting line is at just above 2,500 feet above sea level, and runners reach an elevation of about 4,700 feet above sea level at the highest point in the race, as participants trek through the sagebrush-covered hills area known as Rocky Canyon.

This is not a walk in the park, but you can walk the steep, you will not be alone.

Punti salienti del corso

Mile 1: The climb begins as participants hit Reserve Street and wind around the corner up Shaw Mountain Road.
Mile 2: The climb continues up Shaw Mountain Road, and if you look back, you get a nice view of Bronco Stadium.
Mile 3: Past the Table Rock Road turnoff, and it’s the only part of the first 8.5 miles that is downhill and runners cross the first cattle guard.
Mile 4: At mile 3.5, the pavement ends and the dirt road begins. The climb steepens and you wind up a long narrow canyon with some shade.
Mile 5: Continuing ever uphill, the road winds through a gradually widening Rocky Canyon and crosses the second cattle guard.
Mile 6: Past the second cattle guard, a steep pitch, followed by a brief stretch of flatter terrain to tease you. Take advantage, cause it’s gonna get brutal.
Mile 7: From here on the climb is steep, and shade is scarce. At this stage, don’t be surprised to see runners turning into walkers.
Mile 8: Past mile 7.5, the throng winds up the steepest, most grueling part of the course. Only a half-mile to the summit, but it’s painful.
Mile 9: Over the summit you’re wondering what your calves are doing, because here comes the muscle-cramping, toe-jamming, bone-jarring downhill.
Mile 10: Wind through the back-side forest and try to stay upright on the sharp downhill turns. The best part is the wonderful shade.
Mile 11: The downhill continues and you begin to wonder if it will ever end.
Mile 12: Enjoy the last bit of downhill because once Rocky Canyon Road hits Robie Creek Road, the course flattens out — but of course it feels like you’re going uphill because of what you’ve just come down. How much do you have left?
Mile 13: You made it! Around the last bend is the finish line.
