Race Recap: 2012 Ironman 70.3 Boise

2012 Ironman 70.3 Boise

After enduring a cold rain storm in the hour leading up to the start, athletes leave the shore at Lucky Peak Reservoir east of Boise to begin the Ironman 70.3 Boise event Saturday June 9, 2012. Click here for full image gallery.

The Desk to Ironman Challenge has come and gone (at least for 2012). Check out our last post on the subject for details of this year’s event and the competitors.

The 2012 Ironman 70.3 Boise was one to remember as race organizers greatly shortened the planned 56-mile bike course due to the cold wind/rain storm and hypothermic conditions.

Despite all the trash talk, Ben Brasher came up short and home-town favorite (and cousin) Doug Brasher took home the bragging rights.

As you’ll see in the most recent Post Sale Report, Ben is still talking and has challenged any interested parties to join him in March 2013 for the Ironman 70.3 California event in Oceanside. Any takers?

Here is the official results breakdown for Boise:
