Training for the BolderBOULDER

This has been our mantra from day one. We created this event because we believe anyone can do a 10K, and everyone benefits from better fitness—it is one of the foundations to living a BOLD life.

Step 1: Buy running shoes. Don’t overthink it. If they fit well and you can run comfortably in them, they’ll work. If you want more specific advice, visit a running store, like the Boulder Running Company

Step 2: Run. The simplest plan is just walk or jog 3x a week for 30 minutes. Start slow. Walk as much as you need to. Jog as much as you can. Take time to rest and recover.  

Step 3: Be bold. Enjoy yourself. Have fun. You earned it. You make this the biggest and best Memorial Day celebration on earth. Revel in the moment and celebrate your accomplishment.

Set a personal goal that you can achieve. You don’t have to run at all or run the whole thing—unless that’s YOUR goal. You can always do better next year. 

Choose a training plan below that suits you best. The more consistently you train, the bigger the gains you will make. You can also contact a training group like our partners at Revolution Running. If you are just starting out, feel free to modify the durations and repetitions to your comfort level.
