The Colder Bolder is a great winter tradition! It’s set on the campus of the University of Colorado in beautiful Boulder, Colorado, and it’s a Bolder Boulder qualifier!
Your Bolder Boulder finish time determines your wave for the Colder Bolder, so in this race, you run with people of similar race abilities! While waiting for your wave to start, you can stay warm in Balch Fieldhouse, and when they announce your wave, you head to the starting line.
This race is very popular, and has lots of waves. Because you compete with folks in your wave for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, there are lots of winners! You can also use your finish time to qualify for a wave in the Bolder Boulder! That’s very important because the Bolder Boulder in May hosts around 50-thousand runners!
Again, the Colder Bolder course winds its way through the campus of the University of Colorado, and ends inside the Balch Fieldhouse!
Once across the finish line, it’s time for free beer and brags about your finish time! What a super fun race! It really helps take the chill off of winter racing!
