Get your voting done with a run! #RunItIn – Scott Jurek

Under sunset orange awnings of In Motion Running, just off of Walnut and 30th Street a small group of runners started to assemble. A fun run was established this Tuesday night to encourage runners to bring their election ballots and run to a downtown Boulder drop off location at the Boulder County Courthouse on Pearl and 14th Streets.

Ultra Runner, vocal environmentalist, and a Protect Our Winters athlete Clare Gallagher introduced the event with a few words before turning it over to ultra runner Scott Jurek. Instructions were given on the route and pace, and group photos were taken before heading downtown via the Boulder Creek Path.

While a handful ran with their ballots including the Jureks (Scott and wife Jenny) others joined for the community and laughs along the way. Once downtown they cheered for others also carrying out their civic duty before doubling back on the creek path under the sun-setted sky. 

Election Day is Tuesday,  Nov. 3.
