The 2013 ColderBoulder was earned its name again this year with the coldest race to date recording temperatures from -5° to 5° at race starts. Photos and results

We are fortunate in Boulder and the plains of Colorado that running in winter time can sometimes mean running shorts and t-shirts even in February.
