YOUR BOLDER GUARUNTEE™

The 2020 BOLDERBoulder has been rescheduled to Labor Day – Sept 7, 2020. Read more here.

All registrations are automatically backed by the Bolder GuaRUNtee.

For 2020 we have made a few adjustments on how you can use your registration. If you are unable to run with us on Labor Day in Boulder, here are some options for you to consider.

1. BOLDER GuaRUNtee

  • Keep your race package from 2020!
  • Use your GuaRUNtee code to run in either the 2021 or 2022 FORTitude or BOLDERBoulder races.
  • We will send your GuaRUNtee code after race day. You decide which year and which race. Use the code when you register and then you pay just $10 (not $20) for the Short Sleeve Race Package.

2. Give your entry to a friend
If you don’t intend on running, you can gift your race package to a friend to register for FREE. We can take care of this at [email protected] before August 24, 2020.

Race entry fees are non-refundable and non-transferable under any and all circumstances including cancellation or postponement.

Please note that the Bolder GuaRUNtee cannot be combined with any other discount or promotion.

How do I use the Bolder GuaRUNtee?

Anyone who signs up for the event and doesn’t make it will automatically receive a Bolder GuaRUNtee notice via email in September (2020). Each email has a personal rollover code. We will also re-send an email several months before the race as a reminder. If for some reason you do not get the email notification, simply email us for a re-issue. 

When you sign up for the next year’s event, simply apply your personal rollover code, pay $10 … and you are in. Done! Easy-peasy! Please note that the 2020 BOLDERBoulder GuaRUNtee is valid for the BOLDERBoulder or FORTitude but cannot be used towards the ColderBOLDER. 

The Bolder GuaRUNtee is specifically for those who miss out on the fun. We want YOU to come back and be part of the BOLDERBoulder experience. Remember, your personal code is for you and cannot be shared with friends or family.

Please note that the Bolder GuaRUNtee cannot be combined with any other discount or promotion.

The goods on the goods

You keep the original shirt(s) and merchandise you ordered if you pick up your packet within two weeks from race day. The GuaRUNtee gets you a spot in the next BOLDERBoulder. We will send you an email reminder to pick up your gear or for a small fee when can mail it to you.

Yes, you can also upgrade to the Long Sleeve Shirt Package for an additional $5, grab the Tech Shirt Package for just $15 more (shirt alone retails at $30), or go all the way with the Bolder Package (all three shirts) for $30 extra. Check them out when you register.

When can I use my code?

If you register for this year’s race but for some reason end up missing it, you can use your GuaRUNtee code to run in either the 2021 or 2022 FORTitude or BOLDERBoulder races. Use the code when you register and then you pay just $10 (not $20) for the Race Tee Shirt package.

Note that if you sign up after the “Running Late” fee kicks in, or on race day, you’ll be on the hook for those added charges.

What if I didn't make the race in 2019?

Your Bolder GuaRUNtee is good for the 2020 race, for $20. All the same rules apply. You should have been emailed your personal rollover code, but if you didn’t get your code, email us.

What about my wave?

If you were in a qualified running wave, you would need to re-qualify to be put back into a qualified wave for the following year’s race. Or, you could just request to be in a non-qualified running, jogging or walking wave.

If you were in a non-qualified running, jogging or walking wave, we will do our absolute best to get you back in a similar wave for the following year’s race. If you want to run in one of the faster, qualified waves, you will need to submit qualifying proof equivalent to running a 10K in under 68 minutes.

Learn how our waves work and how to qualify if you want to.

The BOLDERBoulder Commitment

From the founding moment of the BOLDERBoulder, we have continually striven to find new ways to make our event the best experience for you. No entry-level caps, exciting on course entertainment, the invention of the wave starts, the first RFID timing at every mile in a mass participation event, and no hidden service charges.
