The second running of the Pebble Creek Mountain Run was held on Saturday, June 28th, 2014. 23 people participated and we raised a little over $800! Luke Nelson dominated the event with an amazing time of 26:25! Special thanks go out to the Pebble Creek Ski Patrol and the Pebble Creek Ski Area for allowing us to use their facilities and for running the lift a little early for us. Bingham Memorial Hospital was our timing sponsor and Doug Ashton from the Orthopedic Institute was on hand to provide medical support. Other sponsors included Element Outfitters, Pocatello Running Co., Meadow Gold Dairy, The Bridge and Free Heel and Wheel.
We want to make this great race. Please email your comments to race director Troy Neu

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.
