Pocatello Marathon | Half Marathon | 10K |5K | Kid’s Run

September 7 @ 6:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT

This is an annual event held on Labor Day weekend.

The start is on Crestview Rd. at the top of the Buckskin Saddle. Click for a map of the certified course. Times on this course can be used as qualifying times for Boston and New York Marathons.

The elevation drop over the entire course is approximately 1,550 feet. The first half drops approximately 1,400 feet, and then the second half only drops about 150 feet. Don’t go out too fast during the first half of the course, your quadriceps will be very unhappy and they will let you know it late in the race. Pace yourself during the first half and make sure to do some downhill training if possible.

Half Marathon – 10K – 5K
The half marathon start is at the north end of Inkom Road. It is the second half of the marathon course. It has two medium hills but drops about 150 feet in elevation from start to finish.
