About Just Cuz Half Marathon, Pocatello

The Just Cuz Half Marathon was started by a local resident who was looking for a tune-up race to train for Arizona’s Tucson Marathon in 2006. The race takes runners along the highways from the Caribou National Forest, a 3-million-acre protected forest area that stretches across the southeastern part of the state and touches its borders with Wyoming, Montana and Utah, to Pocatello’s Centennial Park.

Runners looking for a long, downhill half with a friendly, fun feel will feel more than welcome at Pocatello’s annual Just Cuz Half Marathon, which has grown from just four runners at its first running to a few hundred finishers a year every year.
