About Pocatello Marathon

The start is on Crestview Rd. at the top of the Buckskin Saddle. The USA T&F Certificate: ID08002DCR. Times on this course can be used as qualifying times for Boston and New York Marathons.

The elevation drop over the entire course is approximately 1,550 feet. The first half drops approximately 1,400 feet, and then the second half only drops about 150 feet. Don’t go out too fast during the first half of the course, your quadriceps will be very unhappy and they will let you know it late in the race. Pace yourself during the first half and make sure to do some downhill training if possible.

Sponsored by Portneuf Medical Center, the Pocatello Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K & 5K features point-to-point courses for both full and half-marathon participants, also called “Running the Gap” by the race organizers.

The Pocatello Sports Committee is a diverse group of people from the community looking to promote amateur sporting events in the Pocatello area.  We are a non-profit 501©(3) organization.  As such, any contributions to our organization are tax deductable.

Highlights

The course takes runners through this southern Idaho city known as the “Gateway to the Northwest,” famous as a stop for pioneers, gold miners and early American settlers traveling the Oregon Trail.

Along the race course, runners can take their minds off the challenging hills with the views of the southern Idaho mountains off in the distance, as they make their way through the small nearby communities of Inkom and Portneuf on their way toward the finish in Pocatello.
