Race for the Steaks Fun Run
October 5 @ 4:00 pm - 7:30 pm MDT
The 6th annual Idaho Beef Council Race For The Steaks benefiting the
Treasure Valley Family YMCA and The Idaho Foodbank.
Bring the whole family for an evening of fun at beautiful Ann Morrison Park in Boise. Sign Up for one of three races, meet a local Idaho rancher and try your hand at roping a cow dummy. Then, finish the evening off by refueling with a delicious, nutritious, Tri Tip Steak dinner — all to raise money for a good cause.
The steak dinner is free to all race participants, but additional dinner tickets may be purchased for $15 in advance while supplies last.
For each race registration, $10 will be donated to the Beef Counts program. Beef Counts is a community-based partnership between Idaho’s beef industry and The Idaho Foodbank that provides high quality beef protein to food-insecure Idahoans. The remainder of race registration fees will benefit the Treasure Valley Family YMCA.
