Boulder’s Spring 2018 5k and 10k Race Schedule

Spring RacesIf you’ve been paying attention to the 2018 Winter Olympics, you may have noticed that a lot of athletes on Team USA are from Colorado. In fact, Colorado sent more people to the winter games than any other state, so it’s easy to see why our state has a reputation for being fit. Even if you’re no Olympian, living in a place like Boulder means there are plenty of opportunities to get active, such as the city’s array of annual races. Read on for this spring’s upcoming 10k and 5k runs.

Dash & Dine 5k Run Series

When: April 10, 17, 24 & May 8, 15, 22
