HOW DO I GET TO THE START?
There is NO parking at either the full or half marathon start. There is NO drop off at either the full or half marathon start. Bus transportation to both start lines is provided as part of your entry. Please park and meet at the Silver Mountain Parking lot in the gravel lot. Busses will pick people up every 10 minutes. You will leave your car in the shuttle parking lot and be able to ride a trolley from the finish after the race to pick it up.
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT TIME TO START?
WILL THERE BE AID STATIONS?
Yes. There will be six aid stations along the half marathon course, and two aid stations for the 5k race. Aid stations will be staffed by local volunteers and provide water and energy hydration drinks. Each half marathon runner will receive one energy gel packet at one of the aid stations.
CAN MY KIDS PARTICIPATE?
Definitely! We encourage all age groups to participate, and especially encourage young kids to partake in both events. We offer a youth discount to help make this a family-friendly event! Use discounts during registration.
Youth Age 0-6 (age of race day): FREE (Jackass shirt purchased separately at finish line)
Yough Age 7-12 (age of race day): 50% off registration price and includes a Jackass shirt!
WILL THERE BE AGE DIVISIONS?
CAN I BRING MY STROLLER?
We do allow strollers for parents with small children. However, if you plan to use a stroller, you must get it delivered yourself to the start line. We will not allow strollers on the shuttle. Please be respectful of oncoming pedestrian traffic on the Trail of Coeur d’Alenes. Do not take up the entire path.
CAN I RIDE MY BIKE? CAN MY KIDS RIDE A BIKE?
Unfortunately, there are NO bikes allowed on the race course, even for small children. The Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes is too narrow to have bikes and runners on the right side to allow for oncoming pedestrians on the left side. If your child is too young to walk that far, we encourage them to participate in the 5k event.
CAN I RUN WITH MY DOG?
Although we love our furry friends, you will not be able to run with your dog this year. Since we are sharing this running path with other pedestrians and bikers, it will be too complicated to accomodate dogs.
WHERE CAN I PICK UP MY RACE PACKET?
WHAT KIND OF RACE DAY TEMPERATURES CAN I EXPECT?
Weather in the Silver Valley should be lovely in early October. However, the mornings can be chilly while the afternoons can be quite warm. Average lows for October mornings are 43 degrees, and by early afternoon average temperatures reach 60 degrees with chances of rain. You can dress warm for the shuttle, and shed those layers to put into a gear bag at the starting line. The autumn colors should be really glowing during this time of year!
WHAT IS THE COURSE TIME LIMIT FOR THE HALF MARATHON?
The half marathon course limit is 4.5 hours and will be shut down by 2:00 pm. On average, a mile can be walked in about 15-20 minutes. Therefore walking a half marathon will take an average of 3-4 hours depending on how fast you are walking per mile. If you walk a half marathon in 3.5 hours, you are walking approximately 16-minute miles. If you are on the course longer than the time limit, the remainder of your time will be unsupported.
WHERE ARE PORTABLE TOILETS LOCATED?
Portable toilets will be located at the start line for each race, at several of the aid stations along the way, and at the finish line.
WILL THERE BE A GEAR DROP?
WILL THERE BE RACE PHOTOS?
WILL THERE BE A JACKASS AFTER PARTY?
Yes! We are collaborating with Radio Brewing in Uptown Kellogg for the Jackass after-party. More details to come soon!
HOW CAN I VOLUNTEER?
You can sign up to volunteer on our registration page using the “Volunteer” tab on the left hand side! We will need many volunteers at aid stations, road crossing, start lines and finish lines. You also get a FREE Jackass Volunteer shirt!
IS THE 2022 JACKASS HALF A BOSTON QUALIFIER?
Since this is the first year we are organizing this race, it will not be certified to be a qualifying race. However, we hope to make it a qualifier race in the future.
