See Jane Run Women's Half Marathon and 5K 

Guys steer clear: This is the Fried Green Tomatoes version of a distance run. According to the See Jane Run website, the race is "chocolate, champagne, dancing, massages, laughter, tears and lots of fun." All of this bundled together with a friendly half-marathon and 5K.

The starting point will be at Shelter No. 1 in the Julia Davis Park, with both races ending around the same area. Last year's inaugural race brought out roughly 600 people. This year, they're hoping for closer to 1,000. There's a kids' race for the tykes, and strollers are welcome at the back of the line. Awards will be given to the top three overall finishers and the top three winners in 11 age categories.

The theme for this year is "I run for champagne and chocolate," so for the lucky racers who complete the course, a host will be waiting with a glass of champagne and a bit of chocolate to soothe the aches and satisfy the soul.

The event is for a worthy cause. See Jane Run will match up to $1,500 per individual or group donation, with proceeds benefiting the Boise affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

And kidding aside, dudes are totally welcome. According to Kiersten Cooper, manager of the local See Jane Run store, "Guys can race, but they can't win. There's going to be chocolate and champagne at the finish line. Who wouldn't want to run?"

Saturday, June 19, S8 a.m., $15-$95, Julia Davis Park, 700 S. Capitol Blvd., 208-338-5263,
