Working through the details
Thanks, everyone for feedback around our announcement last week around our rescheduled date. The COVID-19 pandemic is creating a new reality for all of us to navigate.
We are working through your feedback and have created a page to start to answer your questions here:https://fortitude10k.bolderboulder.com/fortitude-2020-faqs. Keep checking back to that page as we have more answers through the next few weeks.
We appreciate all the hard work and support from CSU and the City of Fort Collins making these tough decisions.
“The communities of Fort Collins and Boulder as well as two great institutions Colorado State and the University of Colorado continue to lead the way in addressing challenges with beneficial solutions,” said Fort Collins City Manager Darin Atteberry. “This is no different. We face today’s uncertain challenges, but by including FORTitude and BolderBoulder together in 2020 we’re able to address the needs of the runners, the communities and the university and provide an exciting event.”
Fort Collins Mayor Wade Troxell voiced similar support for the plan.
“Within the uncertain times we’re currently facing, this is refreshing and reflects collaboration between the communities and the institutions along with the race organizers. Fort Collins and Boulder come to the forefront in collaborating on many issues for the good of the region and state. This is but another example,” Troxell said.

We’re Running on Labor Day – Together
Due to the rapidly changing landscape of the COVID-19 pandemic, earlier this week it was determined that it would be best to reschedule the BOLDERBoulder from it’s traditional Memorial Day date.
We proposed and worked with CSU, CU, the Cities of Fort Collins and Boulder, for the FORTitude 10K to join the BOLDERBoulder, for a combined, and distinctive10K road race on Labor Day, September 7, 2020
FORTitude 10K will join the BOLDERBoulder on the BB10K course so that we can run together, in Boulder, Colorado.
This is uncharted territory for our team. FORTitude 10K and BOLDERBoulder are very closely connected. We nurtured and love both races. While each is unique, at their core, both share an element of boldness and toughness that is expressed in a common passion for running.
Everyone we met with recognizes that while the two communities may compete in many areas, this is an example of coming together, collaborating to make an event that is special and so important in these challenging times.
There are still so many details to work through but we do know this:
Registration for the Labor Day race will reopen on March 31st.
We look forward to running with you on Labor Day to Run BOLDER with FORTitude!
