Katherine 's thoughts:

I moved to Boulder back in January of 2015 and running Bolder Boulder is exactly what I expected Boulder to be every day!

The start area is close to where I live so I was able to walk to the start line and seeing runners jogging over just gave me chills. You can totally tell this race is a BIG part of the community!

Expo- Had some trouble with my registration but got it all sorted out. The expo is held at the Pearl Street Mall so you can kind of meander through all the vendors. EVERYONE came out for this event. With 50k runners registered, the big names were all out!

Race - With 50k runners, I expected some confusion but it was so easy. I I wrote above, I walked to the start line and didn't check a bag so I just had to get in my corral. I was in BB which was pretty early and I had zero issues.

The race begun and it was so fun to be a part of something this huge. The corrals were all well managed and so you rarely found a bottle neck because everyone really was basically running the same pace as you. It was great.

Most of the time you were on 2-4 lane roads so there was plenty of room to run for the most part. There were people cheering everywhere, miles and km were all marked clearly and this was just a super fun time.

At the end you make your way into the Colorado University Boulder stadium and there is a nice little hill there, but running through the stadium is totally worth it!

Finish Area - This was a little congested because there were so many people but they kept everyone moving and there was so much swag! There were lots of post race vendors too handing out freebies to racers.

Spectating - I then double backed to a friend's house along the course and watched the rest of the runners/walkers finish. The nice thing about this race is they have the elitemrunners race at the end after everyone else was done. It was amazing to see them blaze by and I loved being a part of the day!
