Distance: 70m
Description: Boise    Race amidst the natural elements in the early settlers' footsteps at IRONMAN Boise 70.3, which crisscrosses the historic Oregon Trail.    Once a major hub on the Oregon Trail, Boise is an unparalleled mountain town with unique local flavor. Eclectic restaurants, fantastic trails and a welcoming community make the city a top outdoorsy destination—not to mention a prime race locale. To take full advantage of its picturesque and energetic setting, we've set the finish line in the heart of downtown where crowds of locals will cheer as you finish your 70.3 mile journey. The unique noon start time and beautiful twilight finish makes the race a particular favorite for athletes traveling with their families.  The 1.2 mile, one loop swim begins at the Lucky Peak Reservoir—not far from where the initial settlers first viewed the Boise Valley. After their arduous trek across the desert, settlers exclaimed, "La bois," meaning "the woods!" and so christened the town after its lush rows of cottonwoods lining the Boise River. The bike course is a challenging 56 miles of hilly terrain. Athletes will experience a gradual elevation gain during the first half of the ride before heading back to town. The two loop, 13.1 mile run winds around the Boise Greenbelt and along the scenic Boise River. The finish line pours onto 8th Street in the heart of Boise's hip BoDo District. The race holds 50 qualifying slots to the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Mont Tremblant, Quebec, Canada..
