Run Across Idaho - Race Day Tracker

**Scott has finished his run from Montana to WA! See the Race Day Tracker stats below, and some race-day photos at twitter.com/scottmcmurtrey.**

I'm running across Idaho to help raise money for my March 2011 attempt to run across Chile.

5. Surprise Scott sighting (Mile 33.5) -- Time: 9:56am - Looks tired but still smiling, a good sign.

6. Cataldo (Mile 40) -- Time: 11:04am - Long stop. Spirits dipped a little but still strong. Ate sandwich & a few chips. Fingers still swollen, not worse.

  7. Thanks, everyone. It's going to be quite the adventure, I'm sure.

    The weather forecast looks good - highs around 70, lows in the 40's. So I don't think I'll have to deal with too much heat.

    @The Runner - the first 10 miles or so is on a gravel road, the next 73 miles is on pavement, and the final 10 miles is on a gravel path. I hope my knees are up for the challenge. :)

  22. Nicely done, dude! Now you hafta run Idaho from north to south.

  23. Wow! What an amazing adventure! Great stuff, love it.

    Of course it is totally unreasonable to run across Idaho on your own, not even for a buckle. That's the core of ultra running. Reason does not come into it.
