About Bruneau Beast

Bruneau Beast is the toughest Marathon, 1/2 Marathon, and 10k on the planet!!

So if you think splatting some mud on your face or jumping over a fire makes you look tough, you need to do the Bruneau Beast for the race pictures. They are epic. And there is no creative photography required, it is simply one of the very cool spots on the planet to have a race picture.

You aren’t going to PR. Seriously. Not even close. Unless you pick a distance you’ve never done before. Otherwise forget setting a PR. If you are from around Boise and want a comparison, Robie’s winner in 2014 did that in 1:17…our 2014 half marathon winner finished in 2:13. Now don’t get all chicken on us, just don’t show up and be like “Oh I can’t believe how tough that really was.”

Overview

The 1/2 Marathon is two modified loops of the 10k Course and the marathon is four modified loops of the 10k Course. The marathon course does have a 9 hour time limit and a 7 hour cut off for getting through the 3rd loop. The course is almost entirely sand. Roughly 1/4 mile is paved road and another 1/4 mile is packed gravel…the rest is sand. The elevation gain is very moderate, but it’s sand trails and sand dunes so expect to feel slow.
