2019 Registration Is Open

When is the race?

It’s always on Memorial Day, rain or shine, which in 2019 is Monday, May 27th. The first race wave will start at 6:55am.

How do the waves and qualifying work?

We invented, and perfected, the wave start. Because we want you to run, jog or walk at your speed, there are over 90 waves in the BolderBOULDER, organized by your expected pace. Only the first 31 waves (sub-68 minute pace) require proof of qualification. You can register for any of the subsequent waves without qualifying. This way, you can run/jog/walk with runners like yourself, and not get lost in a mass start.

Learn how our waves work.

How can I start with friends or family?

We can help you start with your family or friends; the rest of the day is up to you. If you want to be in the same start wave as someone else, register everyone online at the same time. Enter the names of those you want to run with in the appropriate field. Qualifying rules still apply, and everyone in your group will be placed in the slowest person’s wave. Check our friends and family search page in April to see if the people you know are already registered. You can get to the start line by bus or by parking in one of the lots between the start and finish.

What if I sign up and can't race?

If you sign up and can’t run the BolderBOULDER, we will roll your registration over to the following year’s race for only $20. And, you don’t need an excuse from your mom or a note from your doc.

Please note that personal codes cannot be shared with friends or family and the BolderBOULDER GuaRUNtee cannot be combined with any other discount.
