BOULDER, COLO. (May 1, 2020) – BOLDERBoulder, America’s All-Time Best 10K reveals plans for its VirtuALL Memorial Day10K to “run” on BOLDERBoulder’s traditional race day – Memorial Day, May 25, 2020.
In March, BOLDERBoulder announced its decision to postpone running until Labor Day, 2020, and new this year, the BOLDERBoulder will be joined by its sister race, the FORTitude 10k, which traditionally runs on Labor Day in Fort Collins, CO.
“To continue BOLDERBoulder’s 42nd Memorial Day tradition, participants will join the BB virtually for the VirtuALL Memorial Day 10k. Memorial Day has a strong tradition in Boulder, not only for our BOLDERBoulder family and team but for tens of thousands in our state and around the country,” said Cliff Bosley, Race Director.
“It means so much to individuals and families who plan and look forward to the race every spring. Memorial Day is the time to connect with one another and for us to pay respects to those American Warriors who died in service to our country.”
Registration for the VirtuALL run is free and includes a downloadable bib and the opportunity to purchase Limited Edition VirtuALL gear, with part of the proceeds to benefit Help Colorado Now in its support of those affected by COVID-19.
Participants can walk, jog, or run the 10K distance by themselves, with family, and virtually with friends. They will be encouraged to choose a safe route in their neighborhoods, on roads, through parks, bike paths, trails, or even on a treadmill.
While the race can’t be held live and in-person in Boulder, the BOLDERBoulder is committed to delivering a virtual experience that represents the spirit of the BOLDERBoulder on race day.
The VirtuALL event will include Memorial Day traditions; start line announcer, starting gun, staged wave start times, “on course” entertainment, a tribute at noon, finisher’s certificates, and more.
“Our participants can make this event uniquely theirs. To run their pace, as fast as they want; design their own start and finish lines; wear a costume or represent their local neighborhood, family, company, or crew; and anything else they can imagine to create a great experience for this once only event opportunity. We encourage everyone to share their experiences through social media so we can be connected to one another and in turn, make that part of our overall race day experience.” Bosley added.
We may all be running apart, but we will celebrate our accomplishments, and together we will overcome.
