Working through the details
Thanks, everyone for feedback around our announcement last week around our rescheduled date. The COVID-19 pandemic is creating a new reality for all of us to navigate.
We are working through your feedback and have created a page to start to answer your questions here: https://bb10k.bolderboulder.com/rescheduled-faqs. Keep checking back to that page as we have more answers through the next few weeks.
Thanks again for being such loyal fans of the race.
We’re Running on Labor Day!!
For the first time ever in our 41-year history, instead of kicking off the Summer, we get to close it out by running the BOLDERBoulder on Labor Day, Sept 7, 2020.

Sometimes you get to make BOLD decisions
We have, along with the rest of the world, been carefully evaluating the ever-changing COVID-19 situation. We were hopeful that we could hold the race on the traditional Memorial Day date, but with the dynamic situation, we realize it is prudent to reschedule the race to this Fall.
We are working with the City of Boulder and the University of Colorado to finalize a new date in order for us to deliver a race that promises to be as BOLD as ever, including our Memorial Day Tribute.
We are formalizing plans, and thousands of details so that we can announce a new date as soon as possible.
The BOLDERBoulder was founded on living a healthy lifestyle, and as native Coloradans and as a local Boulder business, the health and safety of the community is our primary concern. As always, our priorities are the participants, volunteers, spectators, sponsors, partners, and exhibitors that make this event so special.
If you have already registered for the 2020 race, we will automatically move your registration package to the new date. If you don’t run with us for whatever reason, your race entry is automatically backed by our Bolder GuaRUNtee. We really want you to be able to still be part of the BOLDERBoulder. It’s just that simple.
We appreciate your understanding and know you share our concern. Thanks for being a part of the BOLDERBoulder.
We look forward to running with you in 2020.

We have, along with the rest of the world, been carefully monitoring and evaluating the ever-changing coronavirus situation and how it may affect this year’s race weekend. With 73 days until Memorial Day, our planning and preparations for Memorial Day are still a “Go”.
We have been working diligently over the last several weeks with the City of Boulder to develop contingencies for race day.
The BOLDERBoulder was founded on living a healthy lifestyle, and as native Coloradans and as a local Boulder business, the health and safety of the BOLDERBoulder community is our primary concern. As always, our priorities are the participants, volunteers, spectators, sponsors, partners, and exhibitors that make this event so special.
Race Director Cliff Bosely told reporter John Meyer of the Denver Post in today’s article,
“Our conversation as we’re talking with the city is, we want to do what’s best for the community that allows the Bolder Boulder to be that community-connecting event that still showcases Boulder, still showcases Colorado, is still something that’s really meaningful for the 50,000 people that run,” Bosley said. “In a collaborative, brain-storming kind of forum, what does that look like? And when could that happen, if we couldn’t run on Memorial Day?”
We continue to work diligently to deliver a 2020 race that promises to be as BOLD as ever including the continuation of our Memorial Day Tribute to honor those who have given their lives in service to this country.
If circumstances change, we will communicate any additional updates as soon as possible through email, social channels, and our website.
We would finally like to extend our warmest regards to all of those people directly affected and thank all of those in the healthcare community working so hard to take care of everyone.
