2020 Cancellation FAQs
“This is the most difficult decision we’ve ever had to make, but the health and safety of our participants and our community are paramount” – Race Director Cliff Bosley
To say we are disappointed to have to come to this decision is a severe understatement. This has been all we have known for the last 41 years. We already had to postpone the BOLDERBoulder from its traditional Memorial Day to Labor Day, but after consulting with our partners at CU and the City of Boulder out of an abundance of caution, we need to now cancel the 2020 event. It is not our preference to wait, but it is essential. We look forward to being back with you, in person, in Fort Collins, Colorado next Labor Day, September 6, 2021.
With this, we know that you will all have so many questions and will do our best to answer them here.
