Boise Train Depot


We are excited to announce that Saint Alphonsus and the Treasure Valley YMCA have teamed up to partner in the execution and advancement of this beloved event.  Our organizations are closely aligned in our missions and we are eager to work together to improve the health of our community – especially our youth!

The Saint Alphonsus Capitol Classic Race is open to kids ages 6 to 14, of ALL abilities. The one-mile course starts at the Historic Boise Train Depot and ends at the State Capitol with a Finish Fair in Capitol Park. Everyone is a winner and receives an Olympic-style medal, T-shirt and complimentary refreshments.  Proceeds from the Classic will benefit the YMCA’s Make a Splash program which aims to eliminate the tragedy of drowning by teaching water safety skills to those who typically could not afford to participate.
