“Race for the Steaks” 5K and 15K Run

Boise, – The Idaho Beef Council is excited to announce the second annual Race for the Steaks 5K and 15K on September 12, 2015. The race is presented by the Idaho Beef Council and is in partnership with the Boise YMCA.

Last year was the first year of the Race for the Steaks event, which features a unique evening start of 5 p.m. for both distances and a full tri-tip dinner for all participants. The run begins and ends in Ann Morrison Park and participants can plan to enjoy a beautiful fall evening along the Boise River and Boise Greenbelt.

New this year is a Race for the Steaks Corporate Challenge. The challenge offers companies an extraordinary opportunity to add some excitement, team building, and good-natured competition to the workplace while promoting health and fitness. This is your chance to get a group of employees together to show their company pride while engaging in some friendly competition with other Treasure Valley area businesses.

Participation in the challenge is free; however, all company participants must be individually registered for either the Race for the Steaks 5k or 15k. Companies can pay for employee race registrations and may also receive a corporate team discount.

The winner of the Corporate Challenge will be the company with the highest percentage of their workforce participating, within their size category. Listed below are the prizes for the winning companies and can be used for a company BBQ and/or employee gifts. There will also be additional prizes for the best team spirit and fastest/top-performing corporate team.
  • Small Company -- less than 50 employees (with a minimum of 5 employees participating) will receive $100 in Double R Ranch beef
  • Medium company – 50-249 employees (with a minimum of 15 employees participating) will receive $250 in Double R Ranch beef
