Race Information

The ColderBOLDER is actually 14 individual races.

The top three men and women in each race win Cold Medals. That’s 84 medalists total. So come break out in a cold sweat. Pour cold water on those winter blues.

The first 13 invitational races are for people who ran the 2023 BOLDERBoulder. Each race puts people together who are about the same speed. Why? So everyone has a shot at winning.

For example, if you finished the 2023 BOLDERBoulder in 52 minutes you WILL race the ColderBOLDER 5K ONLY against people who finished BOLDERBoulder between 52-54 minutes.

The 14th and final race is open to everyone: runners, joggers and walkers. We want everyone to stay fit over the holidays, and we want everyone to be able to participate.
