    Noticed FHF 50K mentioned in the Ridge to Rivers Trail System article in latest spring/summer 2012 Runners World Trail special mag. Boise reads like an ultimate
    trail runners mecca. Thanks for the training schedule.

      It is! You’ll see when you come out here! You know you can come out this summer and check out the trails ahead of time – I’m just sayin’.

    Wow. I am stunned at the level of participation and the level of support lined up for this race. I remember when it was just a nice idea you had over a year ago when you first mentioned it to me. It’s going to be weird running an ultra where I can sleep in my own bed the night before. Well done Jenny Stinson!

    • Jenny says:

      Thank you, Dennis! You were with us the day Paul Lindauer came up with the name. Thank You also for helping to design the course and for running & riding it so many times…and all the other help you have provided. Now we just have to do a great job of taking care of the trails so that R2R lets us do it again next year!

    Thanks everyone for volunteering!

    Thanks to everyone for volunteering and getting this race rolling. Can’t wait for Saturday.

      Ditto! We have some amazing volunteers – couldn’t do it without the help of a lot of folks. And, by the way, Mike, I just spoke to Mark Johnson of KTVB and told him that you were going to run it fast enough to make it to the Boise State game! No pressure … just sayin’!
