The Boulder 3 Race Series highlights events around Boulder County with some nice prizes. Each of the events is independent. They each have their own community feel, organizers and beneficiaries, but have joined together to promote each other and offer prizes for the series, in addition to the prizes at the individual races. Come out and try some new and different events.

All finishers in all 3 events will be entered into the drawing for the 3 Race Series prizes. The more events you complete, the better your chances to win. The drawing for the 3 Race Series will be held at the Neder Nederland on Sunday, September 11, 2011, at the awards ceremony. You do not need to be present to win.

Sunrise Stampede 10k

Saturday, June 11, 2011
Race Start – 2 mi at 8:30am and 10k at 8:40

Sunrise StampedeThe Sunrise Stampede is a great  low key local race around the streets of West Longmont. Its perfectly timed a few weeks after the Bolder Boulder, the course is fun and challenging and can often times bring out the best runners in Boulder County. Japanese and Kenyan teams that come to Boulder to train for the summer will sometimes toe the line as well as other local elites who are looking to compete. But don’t let that intimidate you, the race’s intimate tone is set by the old fire truck that leads out the race. There is also a fun and competitive 2mile race option.
