Bolder Boulder 10k
27 May 2019
In 1979 we dreamt of attracting a few hundred of our friends to race through the streets of Boulder, Colorado to celebrate Memorial Day with our families. Fast forward almost 40 years and the BolderBOULDER has grown to become one of the largest and most highly acclaimed 10Ks in the world. Named Americas All-Time Best 10K by Runners World, it is the 3rd largest running race in the United States and the 7th largest in the world.
Park ItParking near the finish line is available on the CU campus south of Colorado Ave. and Regent Dr. Pre-paid parking is also available.
Catch an RTD BusWhether you live in Boulder, Denver, Longmont or anywhere in between you can catch an RTD bus to the race. Check the RunRide schedule on the RTD website for updated bus information.Your designated driver can drop you off near the start line at our runner drop-off area (see map). It is on the northbound 28th St. Frontage Road between Colorado Ave. and Arapahoe Ave. This area offers easy exit from the start area once you’re on your way.
