IRONMAN Boulder week is such a special week. There are so many activities and events. So much excitement and energy. Hard to imagine that in the scope of life, it was over in the blink of an eye.
In case you didn’t have a chance to ‘see it all,’ 303Triathlon had you covered. Here’s a recap of pre-race events, race-day coverage from predawn bag check and bus loading at Boulder High School to the last athlete crossing the finish line at about midnight Sunday night.
Shortly after the 2016 IRONMAN Boulder race was put to rest, we learned that the 2017 race would have a new Race Director. We knew that Dave Christen would not let just anyone take over the event. Tim Brosious was announced as the new race director. I think we would all agree that Tim did an outstanding job.
So, here’s how the week went.
- Paradox Sports in Eldorado Canyon
- IRONMAN Staff loving their jobs
- Team Colorado
- Boulder Stroke & Stride
- Pease Brothers at Big Ring Cycles
- Storytime with Mike Reilly at Colorado Multi Sport
