The Zeitgeist Half Marathon is one of the bigger races in the Boise area, and serves as one of the final races before winter fully sets in. It generally has several hundred finishers.

Race Reports for Zeitgeist Half Marathon


2015 Zeitgeist Half Marathon - Nov 8, 2015

I love running the Zeitgeist Half Marathon. It’s always well organized. The course is decent and definitely challenging. The Race to Robie Creek gets a lot more press, but Zeitgeist has it’s own place as a race in the Treasure Valley.

Race Report: Zeitgeist Half Marathon (2014) - Nov 3, 2014

The Zeitgeist Half Marathon is a solid event for the Boise area. While it’s not nearly as prestigious as the Race to Robie Creek, it still boasts 600-1000 participants and is one of the largest races around Boise. Taking place on the first Saturday of November, it’s usually pretty cold and windy for the race, but this year it was around 40 degrees Fahrenheit. A couple years ago there was snow on the shoulder of the road during the race.
