Emmett, Idaho (United States of America) - "Freezeout Challenge". It should be cold, it should be hard, but it should be great! Beat old man winter, or Mr. Feezeout by taking on the challenge of both the environment and the hill. The loop course is a 12K just slightly over seven miles, and the short course (no Freezeout Hill) is just under four miles. Both courses are challenging but they are great runs for training for other events and for trail running.
Boise, Idaho (United States of America) - "Les Bois 10K". The course starts and finishes at Fort Boise Park in Boise Idaho. The race is run completely on dirt roads. This course is an out-and-back, meaning you climb to 3.1 miles and then turn around and descend back to the Start/Finish Line. The course is challenging but is a great trial run for training for trail running. The race utilizes the Military Reserve Area behind Fort Boise Park.
