SPECTATOR BUS PASSES

Each year, there is a limited number of “Spectator Bus Passes” available for purchase to accommodate guests of the race participants at the finish line and post-race party. Based on available limits, Spectator Bus Passes for $12.00 may be purchased: 1) with initial registration  or 2) if any available, at packet pickup. 

RACE PARTICIPANTS AND OFFICIAL VOLUNTEERS DO NOT NEED A BUS PASS — ONLY GUESTS NEED A “SPECTATOR BUS PASS” to ride the buses to and from the finish area.

 

PARKING / BUS SERVICE

This is a point to point race.  There is no vehicle access or parking at the finish area at Robie Creek Park on the day of the Race.  All spectators, participants and volunteers must park their cars at one of two off-site parking areas and use the shuttle buses to get into and out of the finish area. 

The two parking areas are:

  1. Idaho Parks and Recreation, 5657 Warm Springs Ave., Boise, ID (near the Idaho Shakespeare Theater);  or
  2. Spring Shores Marina, 9725 E Highway 21, Boise, ID located off Highway 21 the road to Idaho City, past Lucky Peak and by the high bridge.

Shuttle buses will take you to and from the finish area to only one of these two parking areas.  THERE IS NO SHUTTLE BUS SERVICE GOING TO OR COMING FROM THESE PARKING AREAS TO THE START OF THE RACE.  If you are a participant, volunteer or spectator who wants to be at the Race start, you must arrange your own logistics for dropping off your vehicle at one of these two parking areas and getting back to the start on your own.  You could hitch a ride or give a fellow runner a ride, everyone is headed to the start.    

Parking in these two parking areas is allowed beginning at 6:00 p.m. on Friday before the Race.  Cars may be left overnight.  The parking at both lots is limited, please carpool.

There is no cell service at Spring Shores Marian or the finish area.  Please plan accordingly.
