Safety & Rules
We want everyone to enjoy a fun and safe 5K on race day.
We absolutely want you to run with friends and family, dress for the occasion, and rock out!
Below are a few more specifics for the do’s and don’ts for the day:
All participants must wear the officially issued race number bib registered to the wearer.
Please wear your bib on your front or side of your outermost garment from start to finish in order for you to be recognized as an official participant and so we can send you photos and your official finish time.
Participants are required to start in their designated wave. Starting in a different wave will result in not being eligible for race awards from the BOLDERBoulder.
Participant race number bibs are specific personal identifiers and may not be exchanged or transferred, given or sold to any other person.
The sale and/or transfer of race entries/bibs is strictly prohibited.
Starting in a race ahead/after your assigned race
Please run in your assigned race. Runners who run after their assigned race will not be eligible for awards. If you need a bib change before the race please visit Solutions in Balch Fieldhouse on race day.
Running with little ones
All ages are welcome at the BOLDERBoulder and we encourage you to make the day a family affair!
Backpacks are great for WALKING with kids that can’t do it on their own but remember, strollers and baby joggers are not allowed on the course. USA Track and Field does not allow strollers or baby joggers on certified courses.
Anything beyond your own two feet
Walking or running with friends and family
Feel free to bring along your tunes and headphones, just keep the volume low enough that you can hear any instructions from the Announcer and Course Marshals
Friends and family are welcome to cheer you along the course, but are not allowed on the course.
The use of alcohol during the ColderBOLDER is not allowed on the course or in Balch Fieldhouse.
All entry fees are non-refundable. During the registration process acknowledgment of this policy is made. Once a runner registers, race items will be immediately ordered and printed for a participants’ registration.
There are NO exceptions. In case the event can’t be done in person, participants will be transferred to our virtual option.
