After each race you'll have a chance to relax, kick back with friends and make a few more while enjoying the post race dinner, awards ceremony, and raffle prizes from our sponsors.


The races are held at the Boulder Reservoir with the start and finish at the main parking lot. The 5k course is relatively flat and fast, out through the park and across the reservoir dams then back again.
