The first Saturday of every December, a group of 3,000 cold-hearted runners, rebels and fitness freaks gather on the beautiful frozen tundra of the University of Colorado campus to conquer whatever nature throws their way. Finishers receive Cold Medals, frosty brews (or soft drinks), tasty treats and a few surprises. If you listen closely that time of year, and you might even hear our battle cry, “Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!”
In 2006, we created a way for our soldiers to participate in the BOLDERBoulder along with the everyone else on Memorial Day. It began with the help of a group of runners in Baghdad, and now has more than 2,000 military personnel running their own BOLDERBoulder 10K at dozens of U.S. bases and posts around the world; even aboard US Navy ships.
