Crater Crawl 2023 Fun Run
September 16 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm MDT
Crater Crawl- Run Around the Rings
By Idaho Outdoor Association
September 16, 2023 @ 10 AM
10K Hike or Run Around the Rings – $35.00 (early bird 25.00 ends May)
2.9 Mile Out-and-Back Hike or Run to the East Crater Viewpoint
Participants will run or hike a challenging 10K (6.2miles) course that takes them around The Crater Rings, a unique site featuring one of the very few examples of volcanic pit craters in the continental United States, and thus recognized as a National Natural Landmark.
The race-course will follow a jeep road to the top of the shield volcano, then around the Crater Rings. Be prepared for some strenuous ups and downs. Adding to the challenge will be the desert heat, which is certain to conjure up images of the craters’ ancient lakes of molten lava.
We also have a 2.9 mile out-and-back course that leads to a spectacular view of the east crater. This is a great option for those who would like to experience the craters, but don’t really want to travel all the way around them on a rough and challenging course.
