Organizing, presenting and managing the BOLDERBoulder is part art and part science. It takes 364 days of dreaming, brainstorming, planning, and sweat to stage the best road race on the planet. Our passion and commitment is to deliver an amazing experience for all 40,000+ participants, 100,000+ spectators and 3000+ volunteers. And we aspire to make the experience better, year after year.

We are proud to be recognized as “America’s All-time Best 10K” by Runners World Magazine, and we strive to deliver on that honor every day.
