Boulder Spring Half Marathon, 10 Mile & 5 Mile
The Boulder Spring Half is shaping up to be another exciting event, and the perfect way for you to start out your 2013 distance running season! The race, which takes place on Sunday, April 7th at the City of Boulder Reservoir,
marks the unofficial start to the 2013 Colorado distance running season.
Join us at the Boulder Reservoir for a day of running and fun on the Boulder backroads! Organize your family and friends and register soon!
As with past Spring Half events, we offer USA Track & Field Certified Courses in the Half Marathon, the 10 Mile and the 5 Mile. Also, the event is honored that USA Track & Field selected our 5 Mile distance to be the 2013 USATF Colorado State 5 Mile Championships!
Regardless which distance you choose on race day, you'll definitely enjoy running on the beautiful Boulder backroads. The race route takes runners through the beautiful farmland just north of town, with breathtaking views of the Colorado Rockies and Longs Peak as you run along. If you've never experienced running on the backroads, you're in for a treat as the running surface is much more forgiving than pounding the pavement! Get your friends and family registered today, and we'll see you on April 7th!
Something for Everyone at the Boulder Spring HalfThe best thing about the Boulder Spring Half is that we cater to all types of runners (and walkers). Regardless whether you're trying to run a personal record in the Spring Half, or you're simply walking the 5 Mile, the Boulder Spring Half has a distance for you. And the Spring Half race course is open for a full 4 hours on race day, so if you're planning on walking the Spring Half, you'll have plenty of time.
