Distance: 10K · Pro Race
In 1979 we dreamt of attracting a few hundred of our friends to race though the streets of Boulder, Colorado to celebrate Memorial Day with our families. Fast forward almost 40 years and the Bolder BOULDER has grown to become one of the largest and most highly acclaimed 10K’s in the world.
Almost 1.2 million runners, joggers, walkers and spectators of all ages have gathered over the years to create a spectacle that defies description. Olympic medal winners and hopefuls, grandmothers and kids, running enthusiasts and one-race-a-year guests from all over the world come together at the foot of the Rocky Mountains to form one of the sport’s truly unique events. Each year we host 50,000+ participants and 70,000+ spectators at Folsom Field for what we like to call the biggest and best Memorial Day Party on earth.
The Bolder BOULDER is still locally owned and operated, and our dream continues. This event has taken on a life that we never quite envisioned, and it rewards us every year beyond measure. We hope you will join us to celebrate fitness, our country and this great state of ours, Colorado.

The Bolder Boulder was founded in 1979 as a small, local 10K, and since has grown to be one of the largest and most respected community running events in the world.
Since 1998, we have attracted some of the fastest men and women from around the globe who travel to Boulder to compete in theBolder Boulder International Team Challenge. Each country fields three-person teams to compete against other teams for one of the largest non-marathon prize purses in the world. The men and women race theBolder Boulder course, and finish inside the University of Colorado’s Folsom Field between 11:45am and 11:55am to more than 50,000 cheering fans just before the start of the Memorial Day Tribute at noon.
Teams are scored cross country style with points awarded on the basis of finishing place. The team with the lowest score for all three runners is the winner. Ties are decided by the positions of the 3rd place finishers. The three members of the first place Team USA are made up of the first three USA finishers of the nine competing. See the 2016 prize money details below (additional prize money available for Team USA athletes).
The Front Range boasts a world-class field of literally the fastest runners on the planet, a large percentage of whom represent their countries in the Olympics. TheBolder Boulder International Team Challenge is the largest and most competitive event of its kind outside of the Olympics and the World Championship. This professional race is the largest international road-racing team competition held annually in the United States.
