The BolderBOULDER
10k road race was first held in 1979 in the area around North
Boulder Park. The course has varied over the years, but has
long finished at the University of Colorado‰Ûªs Folsom Field.
>From the first-year field of about 2,700 runners, it has
grown into the sixth-largest road race in the world, with more
than 50,000 finishers in 2010. In order to allow for such a
large and divergent field, the race features a wave start with
the fastest runners leaving first, followed by 91 additional
waves.

 

The 2011 race
introduces a new start line located at 30th and Walnut in
Boulder. The first wave of runners launches at 7:00am. The
Women‰Ûªs and Men‰Ûªs Pro Race Starts are at 11:00am and 11:11am,
respectively. The Dick‰Ûªs Sporting Goods SportsEXHIBIT will be
on Pearl Street Mall in Boulder, May 28th-29th, from
10:00am-6:00pm.
