Portneuf Medical Center Pocatello Marathon – Running the Gap

Run the Gap Saturday, September 3, 2016!

Join us Saturday, September 3, 2016 for the 17th Annual Portneuf Medical Center Pocatello Marathon for a fast and scenic course. 2015 was a great year with Justin Park (Sandy, UT) claiming his 4th overall title, past marathon champion Mike Knutson (Baker City, OR) returned and claimed half marathon title, and Keysha Stutz (Rexburg, ID) not only won her first title on our course, but she is the first women to run a sub 3 hour and Keysha set the new women’s course record with a 2:57:06! Way to go Justin and Keysha in leading the way to the Pocatello Marathon again being one of the top marathons with the highest percentage of runners finishing with a Boston Qualifying time (per marathonguide.com) – just outside the top 30 at 16.7%. Last year’s champions have been invited to attend – Keysha is registered and set to run down another Pocatello Marathon title.
