Registration for the 2018 Foothills 50K Frenzy opens on Monday, April 9, 2018. Click here or on the image below to go to the registration page.
Fees – $125 (plus processing fee). No early bird registration. No incremental price increases.
We have decided to increase the price for our last year to make the 2018 Frenzy the best ever for everyone involved. We simply could not put this race on without the support of our dedicated volunteers. The bulk of the price increase is because we are planning a very special gift for our terrific volunteers. We feel certain that the community of runners will be happy to know that part of their registration fee will contribute to our “Thank You” gift to the volunteers.
In the spirit of full transparency (and for those who wonder what your registration fee covers), here is a partial list of items that are covered by your Frenzy registration fee:
- Beautiful individually handcrafted finisher mug (by ultrarunner Kevin Flynn)
- Awards (3 deep male and female overall and 6 age groups 3 deep male and female)
- Runner swag (past swag has included things like running hats, buffs, beanie hats, arm sleeves, backpacks, headbands, gloves)
- Finish line meal – Pepe’s Famous Tacos (for all runners and volunteers)
- Aid station ultra food
- Volunteer shirts
- Volunteer gift
- Porta-potties at start and on the course
- USATF insurance
- Timing chips
- BLM permits
- USFS permits
- City of Boise permits
- Generous donation to HAM radio team
- Generous donation to Ridge to Rivers
No individual (including race directors, retail store owners, sponsors, partners, photographers, etc.) receives any compensation for their help with the Frenzy.
Registration closes at midnight on September 29, 2018. No race day registration. No refunds. As is our custom, we do not give out race shirts.
A processing fee will be added to your registration upon checkout. If you prefer to avoid paying the processing fee, you may register in person at The PULSE Running & Fitness Shop in Meridian.
SPECIAL NOTE: We do not allow late registrations under any circumstances except ONE. Beginning on September 30 and continuing through October 5 (one day before the race), you may register LATE for a fee of $250. This will be a 100% donation to Ridge to Rivers. The only acceptable payment is a check made out to Ridge to Rivers. Please contact one of the race directors – either Jenny Stinson or Sheri LaMott – to make arrangements for late registration.
Runner Cap and Wait List – As this is our FINAL Frenzy, we anticipate a larger than usual field. In accordance with Ridge to Rivers rules, the Frenzy is capped at 200 runners. We will set up a wait list on Ultrasignup should we reach/surpass our cap.
