Well, the "toughest half marathon in the Northwest," just a got a bit tougher. Directors for the popular, Boise-area Race to Robie Creek half marathon, set for April 19, voted to uphold the USATF rule against media players of any type in its sanctioned events (race site; news story). While banishing iPods in most public running events seems a little over the top to us at Run Junkie, we fully support this instance since Robie Creek is a well-populated race run on some narrow trails. See our previous post on registration for 2008 Robie Creek (set for Feb 18 @ 8:00am) (post).
