YMCA Famous Idaho Potato Marathon presented by the Idaho Potato Commission is going VIRTUAL!
Monday, September 14 - Sunday, September 20 to complete your run.
The health, wellbeing, and safety of our members, program participants, and staff is our top priority so we are taking the Famous Potato Virtual.
We will offer a 5K, 10K, Half Marathon & Full Marathon and a Marathon Challenge!
You can submit your time or just tell us you completed. Its up to you, you still receive a finisher medal.
Course Options: You can run the official Famous Potato Courses or you can do a 5K in your neighborhood - you get to decide where and when you run.
So grab your favorite "Spuddy Buddy" and get out and move! You can still train with your friends, create teams with co workers or family and come up with funny spud team names. That part will still be the same. What is changing is how see results and the Potato Bar Finish Celebration. That will be back next year but for now we will keep everyone safe and healthy by going virtual.
This year will be different, but think of all the benefits of a virtual run. No getting on the bus at 6am, no trouble finding parking, no standing at Lucky Peak waiting to start in the wind. You will still receive your bib, t-shirt and medal, and the satisfaction that you completed YOUR race.
