All races will begin and end at the lodge. For details on cost, registration and course map, please visit Redfish Lake Lodge. The courses for the half marathon and 10K may need to be altered because of snow.

Last year 454 runners participated and they are pacing to have even more this year. The funds help pay for the staff of the Sawtooth Interpretive & Historical Association (SIHA) at the Visitors Center at Redfish Lake.
