The long-standing tradition of the Downtown Boulder Race Series continues in 2013! The Boulder Race Series has become a popular community event and many of the areas best runners show up to test their speed. A dedicated kids race will take place at each event throughout the series!
The West End 3K kicks off the Downtown Boulder Race Series, taking runners through the vibrant West End district of Pearl Street. The race will include a 1.5K distance for the kids.
The Pearl Street Mile is the "signature event" of the Downtown Boulder Race Series. The event includes a 1/2mile race just for the kids. After crossing the finish line head over to Bands on the Bricks to relax, enjoy some music, and bask in your accomplishment. Fun for the whole family!
New this year - The Downtown Boulder Business Wave!
Only at the Pearl Street Mile - this wave is reserved just for downtown Boulder employees. Think you work at the fastest business in town? Form a team of 3 coworkers and compete for the title and bragging rights! (If you register for this category you will be placed in the Non-Competitive Wave in the West End 3K and East End 2K.)
The summer race series concludes with the East End 2K, a Saturday morning race encompassing the east end of Pearl Street. Bring the family for one final pursuit of speed before school begins. A 1K kids'; race will also take place.
