University Of Colorado Boulder’s Clear Bag Policy

We celebrate in CU’s house, and we need to follow their house rules.
In 2018, the CU’s Clear Bag Policy will be strictly enforced at Folsom Field. They allow you to bring one clear bag no bigger than 12 inches x 6 inches x 12 inches (or a one-gallon resealable clear plastic bag) into the stadium.
Small camelbacks (with size restrictions 14.4 x 10 x 2.4 in / 36.5 x 25.4 x 6.1 cm), fanny packs no larger than 4.5 x 6.5, small clutches no larger than 4.5 x 6.5, flip belts and medically necessary items will be allowed. We have seven aid stations available that serve water and nuun hydration, snack bags at the finish line, as well as other food and beverages that can be purchased.
Clear bags are the norm at athletic venues across the nation. They increase participant safety and decrease waiting time to enter stadiums.
Mobile Lockers

We offer a Mobile Locker service ($3 pre-race or $5 race day), where you can drop your gear at a truck on the southeast corner of 30th & Walnut and it will be waiting for you outside the stadium when you finish. Items left at Mobile Locker compliant with the CU Clear Bag Policy can be picked up inside the Clear Bag Perimeter and brought into the stadium. Bags that don’t meet the CU Clear Bag Policy will still be accepted at Mobile Locker and can be picked up outside of the Clear Bag Perimeter near the stadium. Any clothing left on the ground or fencing in the start area will be immediately donated to charity. We want everyone to have what they need on race day. Plan ahead and help us keep all of the BolderBOULDER participants, volRUNteers and spectators safe!
