Distance: Half Marathon
The Race to Robie Creek is held the third Saturday each April, starts at High Noon. With the help of generous sponsors, hundreds of volunteers, and to the benefit of numerous local charities, we always offer a fun, slightly irreverent, top quality, half-marathon race. With an amazing post-race party and entertainment.
It was 5:00 pm on August 18, 1975, that Boisean Jon Robertson invited 24 friends on a hot August nights run. The start would be at Fort Boise (elevation 2,725 ft), 8.5 miles up Rocky Canyon and over Aldape Summit (elevation 4,797 ft), to a 13.1 mile finish at Robie Creek campground (elevation 3,065 ft). Such was the birth of the Rocky Canyon Sailtoads and the Race to Robie Creek.
