The Boulder Half Marathon (13.1 Miles):
Like the marathon distance, the Boulder Half Marathon takes place entirely on the Boulder backroads course. The race starts at 8:00am sharp on Sunday, September 22nd.
Approximately two thirds of all race day participants will be participating in the Boulder Half Marathon. Like the Boulder Marathon, the Boulder Half Marathon course is perfect for marathoners and half marathoners alike. The Boulder Half Marathon course is a fast one, with few hills. There are definitely fast times to be had as the race course has a gentle elevation gain on the way out and long gradual downhills on the way back to the reservoir.
As with the marathon, runners and walkers in the Boulder Half Marathon have plenty of aid stations out on the race course. If you're a 5K or 10k runner who's never run a half marathon, the Boulder Half Marathon is an ideal first time half marathon.
We're excited that USA Track & Field Colorado
has selected the 2013 Boulder Half Marathon as it's Colorado Half
Marathon championship for this year. Our elite field will be competing
for $2,000 in cash prizes, which will be evenly distributed to places 1
through 5 (plus masters) for both the men's and women's field.
If you've run in the Boulder Half Marathon many times, or if this is your first half marathon effort, we look forward to seeing you at the starting line on September 22nd!
