How do the waves work?
Waves will align with the BOLDERBoulder qualifying standards and the first 20 waves are designed and reserved for runners who finish faster than 62 minutes. Use your FORTitude, BOLDERBoulder, or ColderBOLDER time from the past 12 months, or provide any other race results from a race two miles or longer within 12 months of the FORTitude 10K, and we’ll place you in the fastest wave possible. It’s important to register according to your anticipated pace. All other waves are open to everyone on a first-come, first-serve basis.
