The Boise State Virtual Race Series, presented by the Boise State Alumni Association and the Bronco Athletic Association, includes 5k, 10k and half-marathon distances — plus a kids’ race. So, whether you run on a treadmill, jog/walk around the neighborhood, dance around the house or scooter around the block, we have a distance for you. A portion of the proceeds from the race will support Boise State student scholarships.

The Axtell Challenge

Meet Michelle and Alex Axtell, two local public school teachers. Alex is also a Boise State College of Education mentor teacher. He has progressive MS and will be logging his Boise State Virtual Race Series miles in his wheelchair. If he can do it, then he says you better do it too! Log your miles anyway that works best for you — run, walk, hop on a scooter, wheelchair, dance, skip or stroll.
