It’s time to get registered for the Pebble Creek Mountain Run! This year’s run up The Rock will be held June 24th at 3PM. This is right before the Wildflowers Music Festival so you can stick around afterword and support the Pebble Creek Ski Patrol.
Proceeds from the event go to the Pocatello Cross Country Ski Foundation. You can register here: Pebble Creek Mountain Run
If you’re not interested in participating in the event but would like to help out as a volunteer, please let me know.
If anyone can help out with prizes for the drawing after the race, that would be very helpful as well.
And a quick plug for the sponsors we’ve got so far:

Support these businesses whenever you can, their support of PXCSF does a lot to ensure great cross country skiing in Pocatello
Here are the results from the 2016 running of the Pebble Creek Mountain Run:
The 2015 Pebble Creek Mountain Run was a great success! Despite the brutally hot temperatures, we had a total of 32 participants (10 more than last year) and at least 10 people who registered the day of the event! And only one DNF. In short, we had a great group of really tough runners come out this year.
The Sunshine Run (1.65 miles) was canceled due to lack of interest but the Skyline run (2.6 miles) went on as planned.
The men’s winner was Luke Nelson with a time of 27:33 and the women’s winner was Melissa Merrill with a time of 36:17. Mellissa also set the women’s course record and won a $25 gift card to the Bridge.
We managed to raise about $800 this year.
Thanks to all of the volunteers that helped out:
Roger and Patricia Schmidt
And our sponsors:

And of course, thanks to Pebble Creek and the Pebble Creek Ski Patrol for allowing us to have the event!

The second running of the Pebble Creek Mountain Race will be held on June 28, 2014, at 2pm. Runners can choose either the Sunshine Run for 1250 vertical feet over 2.5 km, or the Skyline Run for 1950 vertical feet over 4.25 km. After the race, runners can return to the Lodge via the Sunshine Lift (this is the lower of the two lifts, so Skyline runners will have to make their way back down to the Sunshine Lift). Awards and raffle to follow. The event will end at 5pm.
Cost: $35 (after June 1: $40) Proceeds from this race support the Pocatello Cross-Country Ski Foundation. Entry fee includes entrance to the Wildflower Festival.
Pebble Creek’s annual Wildflower Festival will follow from 5pm to 10pm. In addition to live music, there will be food and local brews. The Sunshine lift will be running for those wanting to ride up and hike down through the abundant flowers. The hillside just above the deck provides a perfect view of both the performers and the sunset. Proceeds from the Festival support the Pebble Creek Ski Patrol.
