10am – 12 noon

This event includes:
15% discount in store (some exclusions apply) to shop for BOLDERBoulder kids gear.

6.2 miles may seem daunting, but it is achievable! The BOLD SQUAD offers a kid-friendly training program to help them feel ready on race day. In their race packets, members will receive custom stickers to help track their their training. 

While the training plan is geared towards younger participants, parents and guardians can get involved by offering support and training alongside their child.

Participating in the Fun Run hosted by Runners Roost at their Boulder location is another great way to get in some training before Memorial Day, and a great chance to meet other BOLD SQUAD members. 

The BOLD SQUAD is an upgrade of our former youth initiative, the BB Racers Club. The BB Racers Club was a program implemented throughout elementary and middle schools across Colorado. The BOLD SQUAD allows the opportunity for every 14 and under entrant to participate. There is no separate sign-up or need for a school sponsored club. Parents and guardians simply register their child through the regular race registration platform to receive the benefits of this exciting new initiative.

“In evaluating our BB Racers Program, we wanted to bring the most value to the largest number of kids possible. The BOLD SQUAD helps inspire all of them to experience the magic of the BOLDERBoulder from start to finish,” states Cliff Bosley, Race Director.  “We want kids to add running to the list of things they like to do. We know that fun training and having a good experience on race day is key to that goal”.

Through the BOLD SQUAD we hope that every child, 14 and under, feels included in something special. We’re looking forward to seeing as many kids as possible flashing their medals and smiles around Folsom Field on Memorial Day!
