Hello Boiseans & others! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a crucial part of keeping this epic event going. My name is Alex and I have lived in Boise for almost 4 years. I love running, being outside, and the community. To be honest, the only thing I might love more is helping others engage with those three! I bring over a decade of experience in the running industry to the table and spend most of my free time training for ultra distances on our wonderful trail system that we are so fortunate to have. It's been an absolute blast working with the race team and with the other partners in the Treasure Valley Community to continue the legacy of The Boise Front Trail Run. Thanks for visiting our site and I hope to see you out there on the 6th. In the meantime, run free and help spread the word!

Hi Everyone! Thank you so much for visiting our page and being interested in supporting the Boise Front Trail Race! I am so excited to be a part of this event! I originally moved to Boise 6 years ago to compete on the Boise State Track and Cross country teams. While I was at BSU, I fell in love with the city (especially the trails) and decided I couldn't leave. Day to day, I am the CEO and Co-Founder of local start-up Lumineye, where we build situational tools for first responders. Outside of work, I pretty much spend all my other time running and enjoying the wonderful Idaho outdoors. I have been running competitively for over 20 years, serve as as the Secretary of the USATF Mountain Ultra Trail Executive Committee and was on the USA Mountain World Championship Team last year. Thank you for your support and we all look forward to seeing you on August 6th!

Greetings! We're so excited for this year's Boise Front Trail Run, and we hope you are too. I'm a relative newcomer to Boise (my wife and I moved here in early 2020), and I'm constantly in awe of the abundant places to run, hike, bike, swim, paddle, and more in the Treasure Valley. There's a whole lot of nature to be thankful for as a Boisean, and I hope this event encourages seasoned trail users and newcomers alike to come out and enjoy some of that nature on August 6th!

Hi friends! We cannot wait to celebrate and explore our wonderful Boise trails with you. My wife and I moved out from the Boston area back in 2017 to be closer to the mountains we love to play in. Since moving here we have been overwhelmed by the amazing outdoor community in the Treasure Valley and we can’t wait to share that with new and old friends alike this summer. For my day job I work with manufacturing businesses on their ESG and sustainability strategy and find most of my best ideas coming on daily lunch runs.
