Fall Time is Fun Time

Fall means more time for fun in Boise, with cooling weather comes a host of new ways to explore The City of Trees. First, get running: Lace up your runners for the Jack & Jill Downhill Marathon coming up September 15. The Jack & Jill’s Downhill Marathon & Half course in Boise, Idaho is a USATF Boston Qualifying course with a net drop – you read that right -- of over 4000’. The mid-September date is intentional: Those who qualify will still be able to register for Boston 2020. Go to to sign up. Or, if you’re not a runner? Take a beautiful walk through the Idaho Botanical Gardens, where leaves will have begun their turn. Or, get on a bike: You can explore the hundreds of miles of singletrack trails in the Boise Foothills without fear of melting your tires in the heat. Go to for more. Whatever your idea of outdoor fun, Boise in September is hard to beat.

A Place to Play

Boise is racking up the amenities in the fun department. First there was the Esther Simplot Whitewater Park, with its surfing waves for kayakers and wave surfers. Skateboarders got their gift in the form of the Rhodes Skate Park facility, which took a cramped skate park space and expanded it into a world-class skate site. Now the City of Boise’s Parks and Rec Department tells local news they’re getting close to completing the construction of a new bike skills park in the Military Reserve area. The trails around the area already draws plenty of mountain bikers to explore the Foothills; now they’ll have a place to practice jumps, flow riding other skills challenges.
