TRAINING FOR THE BOLDERBOULDER
OH YES YOU CAN!
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. Choose a training plan below that suits you best.
Train at the speed of bold with Strava! It’s time to kick things into gear. BOLDERBoulder runners now have their own Strava community. Strava turns every iPhone and Android into a sophisticated tracking system. You can follow your progress by comparingyour performance on any segment or route with your past efforts, or those of millions of Strava athletes.
Simplest Training Plan
HOW TO GET READY
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.
Train with a Group
The more consistently you train, the bigger the gains you will make. You can 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.
There are also tons of running clubs to train with around Colorado. Check out our calendar to find one near you.
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.
