FIFTH ANNUAL 50K RELAY AND ULTRA
April 26, 2014
This fun race is held the last Saturday in April each year. The run begins in Council,
Idaho and follows the scenic Weiser River Trail to Midvale, Idaho. Run it solo or
get your friends together and run as a team of up to 5 members. The trail in this
area is a very gentle downhill grade with good tread ranging from packed gravel to
dirt and does have areas of loose surface rock. The course is a great beginner's
run for either relay or ultra runners and a good early season short distance race
for ultra runners. The relay legs vary from 5 miles to 9 miles. Check out the Race
Manual each year for specific details and pricing.
This Upper Country event is the only running event of its kind in Idaho and Eastern
Oregon. Runners have come from Fruitland; Payette; Weiser; McCall; Caldwell; Ontario;
Boise; Cambridge; Columbus, Ohio; Arlington Heights, Illinois; and Fuzhou, China.
After the race there is a sumptuous lunch served at the Midvale City Park for participants
- crew and family can also purchase tickets. The favorite Breakfast Burrito makes
a great lunch. Check the current year race manual for Friday evening festivities
