weisersmallSaturday April 25th come out and support the Weiser River 50k Ultra & Relay.  Registration closes Saturday April 12th, so there is still time to sign up at!!  The course is a 50-kilometer point to point (30+miles) from Council to Midvale Idaho using the scenic Weiser River Trail.  The trail runs alongside the Weiser River, through canyons and across open farmland. There is very little elevation change on the course, as the trail is a converted railroad bed and rail-trails gradually gain or lose elevation.  If you’re looking at testing the waters of a 50k this is a great one to try out!  It is also part of the Idaho Trail Ultra Series!
