BOULDER, Colo. -- The fifth mile of the BolderBOULDER course along Walnut Street is a stretch infamous for bacon, beer and slip-n-slides.

BolderBOULDER co-founder and Olympic Gold Medalist Frank Shorter has some ideas to help you really enjoy the sights and the sounds of the BolderBOULDER course.

  • BolderBOULDER has more than 30 course entertainment acts to keep you energized and entertained as you run 10KM, so feel free to leave your ear buds at home.
  • The BolderBOULDER is not just a race, it is a community event. Take the time to stop along the way to enjoy the slip n slides, bacon, belly dancers, friends, family and the wonderful Boulder community.
  • Once you reach the stadium, make sure to stay for the International Team Challenge, where professional runners from all across the country come to race for one of the largest non-marathon prize purses in the country. The BolderBOULDER also hosts the US’s largest Memorial Day Tribute where we honor those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
