What’s The Wave Start?
It’s pretty simple actually. Instead of everyone taking off at once, we divide everyone into 20 waves. They’re organized by people’s expected pace so that everyone can run with people their own speed. Waves start with the fastest runners, then go to slower runners, then joggers, then walkers.
Do All Waves Require Qualifying? No!
How Do I Pick What Wave To Be In?
Can I Start With Friends or Family? Yes.
Can I Change Waves Once I Register? Yes.
How Do I Enter a Qualified Wave If I Want To?
1. Use your time from any race distance between two miles and a marathon within 12 months of the FORTitude 10K. We’ll place you in the fastest wave possible.
2 Use your 2016 or 2017 BolderBOULDER time. Anyone who finished the 2016 or 2017 BolderBOULDER faster than 62 minutes automatically gets in a qualified wave.
3. Use your 2016 ColderBOLDER time. Anyone who finished the 2016 ColderBOLDER 5K faster than 32:38 automatically gets in a qualified wave.
4. Run a Treadmill qualifying test. You can visit Altitude Running in Fort Collins (150 E Harmony Rd, Fort Collins, CO 80525) Mon-Sun 12pm-5pm and run a 2 mile treadmill test for free. After completion of your test we will bib you in the appropriate qualifying wave and send your packet to the pick up location of your choice – questions? email firstname.lastname@example.org
