“There is nothing interesting to do this week”, said no one ever in Boulder and this week typifies that. Three events in particular on Wednesday May 4 kick off a big week of running related events. Fleet Feet Sports celebrates Mother’s Day by hosting a panel of elite athletes who are also moms, while Flatirons Running will host a panel of women in trail running and Boulder Running Company will have Brooks along for shoe demos at their Wednesday night fun run.
These event will only be a start to a larger weekend of runner events ending with the Mother’s Day Title 9k at the Boulder Reservoir.
You may be celebrating “Star Wars Day” (May the fourth be with you) so you should definitely bring your rebel running shoes to one of these 3 events:
