Official BOLDERBoulder Medals & Awards

Not all heroes wear capes. There are several ways that all of our participants can be winners in a big way. After all, this is more than a race – it’s a celebration! We look forward to celebrating your victory. 

You can walk, jog, or run the BOLDERBoulder, but this year we’re throwing in a fun challenge. Run mile 6 split faster than your previous miles, and you’ll be awarded with fame and glory!


Age Champions

We go beyond traditional age groups and award the top 15 runners of each age (starting at age 6) a medal as well at the official Age Champs shirt for the winner.


Sub 40 Club

Joining the BOLDERBoulder Sub 40 Club is no joke! Cross the finish line under 40:00 minutes  (that’s a speedy 6:26 per mile pace) and gain bragging rights as well as exclusive commemorative Sub 40 Club shirt at the finish.


Beat Your Age

Anyone whose 10K time is faster than their age (e.g. a 45-year-old that runs 44:59 or faster) receives an Ageless Wonder shirt. Visit the Garmin tent at the Race Day Expo after the race to get yours!



The following men and women are part of an elite group. They have participated in every race since it began in 1979, making them BOLDERBoulder’s BOLDEST. We honor and recognize this great commitment that truly makes the event what it is today.
