Surrounded by banners and retro costumes from past races, runners made the 13.1 mile trek from Boise in the 40th running of the Race to Robie Creek on April 15.

UPDATE: The 2,341 spots for April 21’s Race to Robie Creek sold out in 30 minutes Monday. It was not quite the rush of 2017’s race, which sold in half that time. As of two hours after filling up, more than 100 potential runners were on the waiting list.

Before more than 2,000 runners hit the back roads of Boise in April, they will rush to get their spot in the Race to Robie Creek field.

Registration for the April 21 race will begin at noon Monday at www.robiecreek.com. The entry fee is $60, plus a $3.60 online fee.

Once the first 2,341 spots are taken, a free wait list will be created and any vacant openings will be filled. Registration for 2,100 runners sold in 12 minutes, 9 seconds last year.

The half marathon will be the 41st annual run from Fort Boise to the Robie Creek campground, with a nearly 2,000-foot climb and descent. This year’s theme is “2018: A Race Odyssey.”
