The Onward Shay! is a Boston-qualifying marathon that will take you through the most scenic neighborhoods of beautiful Boise. This race is to honor Shay Hirsch, a marathon runner, who exemplified great strength as she faced her battle with cancer. The race incorporates themes from Shay’s favorite book, the Wizard of Oz, unifying themes of courage, heart, and bravery all things that Shay possessed. Before Shay’s passing, she would correspond with her friends ending with the phrase, “Onward! Love Shay”, thus the name of the race. This year, local Toyota dealers, have partnered with this event with all proceeds committed to community service projects and charities. It is not too late to join this 5K, 10K, half and full marathon.
Get ready for some fun during the Onward Shay marathon. The weekend will be filled with events for everyone.
