Upcoming Events in July

The weather is hot and firey and so is the race schedule for July!!  Be sure to check out our Events page for a complete listing of what’s happening around the valley here are a few events the Pulse is sponsoring:

July 11th the Pulse sponsored ITUS series event the Beaverhead Endurance Runs

beaverhead-logo

 

The Beaverhead Endurance Runs offer up a 100k & 55k race distances-

 

Overview: Both races are point to point and take place predominantly on the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail (CDT) and the Continental Divide. The length of Continental Divide covered in this event also represents the boarder between Idaho and Montana. On the west side is Idaho’s Lemhi River Valley on the East is Montana’s Big Hole Valley. In the 100K at mile 49, runners will leave the official CDT for the remainder of the course, but will continue along the true Continental Divide boarder for another 5 miles (mile 54). FYI, at mile 49 the CDT dips into Montana then turns parallel to the Continental Divide in-order to divert away from a section of hard to navigate terrain consisting of high mountains, skree, and cliffs. We as masochistic trial running RD’s think you should experience some of the beautiful skree fields but not the cliffs, so we will drop off the Continental Divide at mile 54 and descend into the head waters of Bohannon Creek and onto the finish line. The 55K race covers the second half of the 100K race starting near the Lemhi Pass AS.

Because runners following the Continental Divide [separation between drainage to the Pacific Ocean (Idaho side) and Atlantic Ocean (Montana side)] they will always be high in the mountains following the natural elevation changes along the divide and will not ascend or descend into the deep creek and river valleys that boarder the course, except when they drop off the divide to the finish. Because of this, the entire race is at a high elevation with respect to this part of Idaho and Montana. This course has a good mix of terrain, with a mix of climbs, descents, smooth trail and technical sections.

This section of the high, remote, rugged and scenic Beaverhead Mountains is rich in history. The birthplace of Sacajawea, the home of the Lemhi-Shoshone Indians, the Lewis and Clark expedition and gold mining are just some of the historic highlights from this part of the Rocky Mountains. Besides the occasional road, the landscape along the course is untouched and looks like it did over 200 years ago when Lewis and Clark crossed the divide and the Shoshone traveled to and from their winter and summer grounds over Lemhi Pass.

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 Ultrasignup.com!!  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!
