Racers are challenged to beat Boise State University head football coach Chris Petersen to the finish line while benefiting deserving students.

The race helps raise money for Boise State’s need-based scholarship fund. To date, the Beat Coach Pete Scholarship Run/Walk has raised more than $138,000 in emergency funding.
Last year, there were 2,515 participants with 1,062 beating Coach Pete. The race started in front of the recreation center and ended inside Bronco Stadium. Coach Pete donated $5,310 to the general scholarship fund for Boise State students.
