Olympians Kick Start BolderBoulder Training
10am Flatirons Mall Broomfield, CO

The BolderBOULDER will kick start its official training program with the help of five Colorado based Olympians and professional runners. They will join a team of ‘BoldRunning’ coaches to take prospective participants on a sample fun run.

Director of the BoldRunning program, Ewen North says, “This will be a great opportunity to come out and rub shoulders with runners who have a genuine shot at making London 2012. The idea is also to allow people to sample the training group ahead of time to give them a taster before they commit to the program.”

All abilities welcome. Details »
