Half marathon near Boise

Bellevue’s Kitty Marcroft placed second overall among 1,009 women in Saturday’s 27th annual Race to Robie Creek 13.1-mile half marathon from Fort Boise Park to Lucky Peak Reservoir near Boise.

Marcroft, 42, finished the so-called "Toughest Half Marathon in the Northwest," with a time of one hour, 35 minutes and 33 seconds, good for 45th place overall and five minutes behind the women’s winner.

The women’s winner was 28-year-old Boise law clerk Lauri Thompson with a time of 1.30:24, good for 23rd place overall among the 2,266 finishers who conquered the 4,797-foot, 8.5-mile Aldape Summit.

Placing ninth among all women was Lauren Kulik in 1.42:50, good for 115th place.

The Wood River Valley also boasted two men who finished among the top ten.

They were fourth-place Grant Folske, 27, the men’s 25-29 class winner whose time was 1.20:18, and eighth-place Ryan Still, 30, the second-place men’s 30-34 racer who clocked 1.24:28.

First-time men’s winner was physician Michael Curtis, 39, of Missoula, Mt. in 1.18:32.

Besides Marcroft, Folske and Still, 13 other Wood River Valley and Fairfield runners completed the Robie Creek event ending at Robie Creek picnic area at Lucky Peak.

Among them was 77-year-old Charley French of Ketchum, who ended fourth in the men’s 75-79 age class with a time of 3.22:50, good for 2,088th overall.
