RACE & COURSE INFO
Sign up for the distance of your choice at the eleventh annual Boulder Distance Classic. All participants will receive a cool Brooks technical running shirt (men's and women's sizing is available) as part of your entry fee! Organized by the folks at the Boulder Running Company, the races are a benefit for the Orphans of AIDS Trust Foundation in South Africa and the City of Boulder Parks & Recreation EXPAND Program.
The Boulder Distance Classic is held at the Boulder Reservoir, with great views of the Flatirons and Front Range mountains. Participants have the choice in taking part in either the 5 Kilometer or 15 Kilometer running races, as well as a non-competitive 1 Kilometer run/walk. All courses are on soft-packed dirt trails around the Reservoir and on rural roads.
