Dan and I work with a woman who is putting on a fun run "the Lucky13.1". Here's the info:

Bust out your best green and come join Boise’s first ever Lucky13.1 on March 16th!!
There will be fun prizes for the top finishers (both men & women), as well as the best (creative) “wearin’ o’ the green” and “most convincing leprechaun”. We’re also asking for estimated race times – as we may stagger the start times to make things more interesting at the end (and more social for the pizza and beer!). Give us your best prediction for whatever distance you’d like to run - there will be a prize for the person who comes the closest to their predicted time! The end time we’re shooting for should be right around 12 (noon) – I will create a few mini start waves and confirm your time via email once I receive your information.

The cost for the race will be $20 (~$15 directly towards lunch and $5 to cover some prizes, supplies).

The start and finish will be at Lucky13 (3662 Eckert Rd, Boise, ID 83716 ) – the course will consist of 2 loops to complete the 13.1 miles (or slightly less than 1 loop for the 10k). We will make sure the course is well marked on race day. I will send links to the course in MapMyRun when I send you your start wave information.

Water, bananas and oranges will be available at miles 3.1, 6.9, 10 and the finish line. Food will be included in the registration fee for all racers. This will include a good amount of pizza and 1 drink (soda or beer – hopefully – still working on details, but don’t forget your ID)!! The same is also available for guests for an additional $15 each (if you want to do this – please include with your original payment). Or guests are welcome to order off the menu separately as well.

This course makes it pretty easy to customize distance – please talk to me if you’d like to run something other than a 10k or half marathon and I’ll give you other options for running whatever distance you’d like.

If you’re up for the challenge, please email Katie @ katie.bonnette@gmail.com and supply the following information:
