St. Luke’s is excited to announce that this year’s FitOne race event will take place on Saturday, September 23, 2023. From elite athletes to young families, all are welcome to participate in FitOne to share in the fun, challenge themselves, and connect with their community. Course lengths will include 5K, 10K and a half marathon.
“Being back in person last year brought restored energy among participants and volunteers. FitOne is for everyone, no matter their fitness level. Our hope is that people set goals, join in on the community and gain strength together,” said Alissa McKinley, Race and Events Director for FitOne. “We’re especially excited to gather again in person this year to celebrate our community, its health and wellbeing, all while raising money for Idaho’s only Children’s hospital here at St. Luke’s.”
Registration starts Wednesday, June 7 with all course lengths just 20 dollars for one day. As always, registration for kids 12 and under is free with a paid adult registration. Again this year, race sponsor, Axiom Fitness, will donate one dollar for every race registration on June 7 for the FitOne launch.
Register and view race information, including race routes, starting June 7 at https://www.fitoneboise.org/. After June 7, registration prices will go up. Registration will be open through noon on September 22, 2023.
A portion of proceeds raised by FitOne helps St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital build new running and walking tracks at local schools and supports other community health initiatives for kids. The large-scale community event has raised more than $900,000 in the last ten years.
