THE WHAT YOU GET:
Each paid entrant will receive a commemorative race t-shirt. The opportunity to play in the streets of down town Boise!! The chance to win overall, age group and door prizes.
Most importantly, the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping to save lives!!

THE COURSE:
Starting line will be located at the intersection of 4th and Main St. Runners will travel east on Main St. to 3rd where they will turn left and run north to Idaho St. Keeping with the theme of turning left, go ahead and make one at the intersection of 3rd and Idaho, then run up Idaho to 6th. From there...you guessed it, turn left at Main St and repeat the loop. The finish line will be at the intersection of 5th and Main after completing the 2nd lap. There will be vehicles leading you around the course, but when in doubt, or having feelings of being lost while running the Main St. Mile, always remember to RUN HARD AND TURN LEFT!!

THE KIDS:
The little ones will be led around the course by a Meadow Gold ice cream truck...once they finish, we'll kick the doors open and give them some treats!!! This wave is not timed, but we think that they will be highly motivated to make all those left turns in a very speedy manner. We encourage parents to join their children as they scamper through the streets.

ADULTS - IF YOU WILL BE PARTICIPATING WITH YOUR CHILD, YOU MUST REGISTER FOR LIABILITY REASONS. REGISTER INTO THE MEADOW GOLD HALF MILER WAVE, ENTRY FEE WILL BE $10.


THE TEAM CHALLENGES:
Teams will consist of five (5) members. All five team members will run the course at the same time...so yes, that means you all have to slug out 1 mile. The scoring is very simple, you are awarded a point for your place of finish...if you finish first, you get one (1) point. If you finish 20th, you get 20 points. The team with the lowest aggregate score wins. Perfect score is 15 points...that's a finish order of 1,2,3,4,5.
FIRST RESPONDERS CHALLENGE:
For the100.3 The X First Responders Team Challenge, all five team members must be from the same unit...BPD, BFD, BLM, military etc. Always looking to stir the pot of friendly competition, the BCFD boys clain the BPD is too afraid of them and fully expect to be polishing the parking meter again this year. Ada County Paramedics took home the traffic light, but it remains to be seen if they will defend.
CORPORATE TEAM CHALLENGE:
In the Idaho PowerTeam Challenge, all five team members must actually work for the same business, sorry,no stacking the team!
