From the race director.
“I have raced this course when it was in its infancy, I firmly believe it will challenge the fittest runners. The course offers amazing viewsof the surrounding mountain ranges and the Wood River whiletesting ones lung capacity at 6000′ elevation; all while running on a traffic free pedestrian path. Dare I say, it may be considered one of the toughest half marathons in the Northwest?”
Brad MitchellSun Valley Half Marathon Race Director
