IDAHO FALLS â€“ The ultra-relay race, To Bone and Back, was last Saturday. In this event, runners race to the small farming community of Bone, 20 miles from Idaho Falls. The teams then complete the race by retracing their path to Idaho Falls. Bone is east and south of Idaho Falls.
A small bone is exchanged between teammates at each checkpoint.
Reasons for running vary.
â€śItâ€™s a blast,â€ť said Allison Boyer from Firth. â€śItâ€™s an endorphin rush to the max.
