It is with a heavy heart, but a happy heart, that the 2015 XTERRALes Bois will be postponed to 2016.
My family is “expanding” within a week of the race date (July 11) this year. After months of attempting to put a satisfactory contingency in place, unfortunately, I have been unable to solidify strong “ground support” to ensure the XTERRA experience. As this ultimate decision was not easy with many restless nights, I hope to see you in 2016!
We here at XTERRA Les Bois appreciates everyone’s patience while we have been working hard getting registration open this year! We decided to switch up registration companies to support some local folks that have supported us over the past few years. With that being said, thanks again for your continued support in bringing such an awesome race to our community here in Boise. CLICK ON THE LOGO BELOW!
Look forward to seeing everyone on the dirt in 2015!!! XTERRA Les Bois Crew

XTERRA Les Bois is excited to have Professional triathlete Jeff Smith return to our race for a 2nd year in a row. Jeff was our top amateur in 2013 and took 3rd place overall! Jeff made the “big jump” in 2014 throwing his “chip” in the game as a professional. He is currently 8th in the XTERRA Pro Series point standings and is looking to improve on his 3rd overall placing last year and vie for the top spot in the $2000 Pro prize purse.
Thanks to all the past participants of the race suggestions, we are excited to improve the course logistics in 2014 to better suit not only the athlete, but the spectators as well. Check out the new course by clicking on the course tab above.
