Run Boco Gala 2016 – Celebrate the Boulder running community
12/02/2016 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm$40
This second annual event is a celebration of the Boulder running community. It’s a gathering of all the amazing people that make this town such a great place to live and train. It also serves as non-profit Hudon Elite’s annual fundraiser.
Ticket prices are $40 for a single or $65 for couples and include appetizers from RAD, beer from Sanitas Brewing Co., and wine from Squadra. There will be music, dancing, and laughing. A silent auction will feature items like signed memorabilia from Olympians, an ElliptiGO, a week’s vacation to a resort in Roatan, Honduras, and a weekend getaway to Winter Park.
We will also be recognizing and honoring Rich Castro with the Founding Father Award for the undeniable impact he had on the Boulder running community.
Rich Castro has been instrumental in building the talented and diverse running culture that we enjoy today in Boulder. Not only did he help start the women’s track team at University of Colorado Boulder, and founded the Boulder Road Runners, he also served as the distance coach for 1996 Ecuador Olympic team, coached for the U.S. Army World Class Athlete Program, served as a global consultant for both Reebok and Nike, and introduced countless international athletes to the beauty of Boulder, Colorado while recruiting racers for the BolderBOULDER.
To thank Rich for helping create the Boulder running scene as we know it, Hudson Elite will donate a portion of the Run BoCO Gala’s proceeds to the The Rich Castro University of Colorado Track & Field Endowment Fund, funding track scholarships.
