Pearl Street Mile

Boulder

 

The Pearl Street mile will see a major change to the original course this year with the new course being a 2 lapped event. The race will start on 14th and Spruce St and it will finish in front of Boulder’s iconic Court House located on the Pearl St Mall.

The newly designed course will make it spectator friendly with Downtown Boulder’s Band on the Bricks and the new finish line in front of the Boulder Court House will certainly make it one of the most spectacular finish line backdrops.

After the race, enjoy the Downtown Boulder’s Bands on the Bricks, which is Boulder County’s premier outdoor summer concert series taking place on the Pearl Street Mall adjacent to the race finish line. Listen to music from “That Eighties Band” and venture into the beer garden and enjoy a nice cold post race beer courtesy of Avery Brewing Company.

West End 3k

Boulder

 

Part of the Downtown Boulder Race Series.  The race will be at the traditional starting spot of 11th and Pearl, but this year it will be bigger than ever before with the live 80’s cover band “The Goonies”, the Oskar Blues beer garden, and of course running races for all ages. The West End race has reverted back to the popular 3K distance, which was last held in 2013.

This years West End 3K promises to be a great event. With all races being multi-lapped loops making them spectator friendly, the new redevelopment of the West End of Pearl completed, plenty of great options to eat and have a drink while relaxing after your race, there is no excuse not to have a good time!

Calling all Volunteers!

Best way to experience spectating an Ironman? Volunteer!!

Did you know it takes about 2500 volunteers to make this race happen. Anywhere from body markers, swim safety to aid stations on the bike and run as well as finish catchers. It can’t be done without the volunteers!

From Race Director, Tim Brosious . . .
There are several key positions left or needing some additional coverage. Aid stations on both the bike and the run are our highest priority and are really looking to optimize our volunteer coverage. EVERY athlete hits one of these stations at one point in their day (or two, three or four times). From special needs bag drop volunteers at 3:45am to bike check out volunteers at midnight, there is certainly something for everyone!


All available positions are found online HERE  or you can register at the expo! The expo is a great place for an athlete’s friends and family to sign up and ensure they’ll see their favorite athlete on course!

IRONMAN Boulder

Boulder

 

Nestled at the foot of the imposing Flatirons, Boulder, Colorado is already a wildly popular home-base and vacation destination for triathletes. The city’s health-conscious culture, near-perfect weather and breathtaking natural environment made it an instant favorite when it debuted last year.

Boulder’s robust downtown, with its famous pedestrian-only Pearl Street Mall and idyllic Boulder Creek, will provide families and fans an unforgettable race day as they wait for their loved ones to cross the finish line. From five-star hotels to James Beard award-winning restaurants, Boulder’s hotel and dining options are some of the best in the nation.

Once finished in the water, the first transition will start the athletes on a beautiful multi-loop course all contained in Boulder County. The course has a few pronounced climbs in it, but in general it plays out very fast. Once done with the two 50+ mile loops you will do the final 7 miles on an additional loop and roll into Downtown Boulder for the second transition at Boulder High School.

The two-loop run course is almost entirely on Boulder Creek Trail, winding along the creek and through city parks. Spectators will have multiple opportunities to cheer on the athletes and the last few steps of the day will take athletes up Pearl Street for a triumphant finish.

The 2017 IRONMAN Boulder offers 40 qualifying slots for the 2018 IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
