Redfish Lake Lodge Memorial Run is Saturday

Express Staff Writer

     Sign-ups are being finalized for the third annual Redfish Lake Lodge Memorial Run Saturday, May 25 at Redfish Lake Lodge south of Stanley.

     All races begin and end at Redfish Lake Lodge. Half marathon and 6.2-mile courses will be on paved, gravel and trail surfaces that will be well marked, organizers said.

     The 13.2-mile half marathon ($60 per person) starts at 10 a.m. at the lodge, and the 10-kilometer ($45) and 5k ($35) runs begin at 10:30 a.m.

     Visit or call 208-664-9613 for more details. You can register online at

     The lodge will provide a pre-race meal featuring live music Friday, May 24 from 6-8 p.m. ($12 for the meal). You can register for the race Friday from 4-8 p.m. at the lodge.

     Raffle tickets will be available during packet pick-up times and at the Lodge’s front desk. Most raffle proceeds will be donated to the Sawtooth Interpretive Historical Association to help fund interpretive and improvement programs.

     For a special “icebreaker” treat, runners might want to join the “Bluefish Club,” and jump into the lake at high noon. Meet at the end of the dock Saturday and give it a go.

     Last year’s Redfish Lake running event occurred in temperatures hovering around 32 degrees with light snow.

     Still, there were 177 participants—70 men and 107 women—including 53 in the half marathon, 56 in the 10k and 68k in the 5k.

     Half-marathon winner was Wood River High School distance runner Alexis Gonzalez (1.27:41). Then a freshman, Gonzalez won going away by nearly three minutes over Hailey’s Ryan Yates (1.30:33).

     Female winner of the 13.2-miler was Lauren Ryan of Pocatello (1.41:15). Hailey’s Joanna Peters (1.45:38) was the third female in the group of 53 half-marathon runners.

     In the 10k race, Teton High School junior Caleb Moosman led the way in 38:28. Taking the women’s 10k title was Ketchum’s Angenie McCleary (44:22) ahead of second-place female Jessica Wasilewski of Ketchum (48:46).

     Challis High School senior Tyler Jaszkowiak won the 5k event by over a minute. Meridian’s Katy Kidd was the women’s 5k champ ahead of the local 2-3 placing finishers, both at 25:40, of Darlene Young and Katherine Rixon.
