Welcome to the Wild Idaho 50M/50K/16M trail ultramarathons! These are tough races, with ~16000, 10200, and 5200 feet of gain respectively. The Wild Idaho races take place about 23 miles north of Crouch, Idaho (~75 miles north of Boise) starting at Boiling Springs Campground and constitute a perennial favorite camping/running weekend for the greatest ultrarunning community on the planet. New for 2014 is a 16 mile run from Boiling Springs to Skunk Creek Summit and back – perfect for anyone to try their hand at this sweet race without committing to the whole 50.
