Getaway 5K/10K Boulder routes

10K:

The 10K course will feature 1 complete lap around the beautiful Boulder Reservoir.  This flat course will be run on mainly dirt roads, with some paved sections.  Runners will be treated to gorgeous views of the Reservoir and, to the west, the Rocky Mountains in all of their glory!  You’ll keep the water on your right the entire time leading up to the fast finish through the Getaway Arch.  This is definitely a race for a negative split!

5K:

The 5K course is an out-and-back course run on mostly dirt roads and some pavement.  Runners will start by running east to a turnaround point at 1.55 miles and head back the same way.  You will keep the water on your left on the way out and on your right as you come back to the finish line.  You get the same great views in only half the time!

Kids Fun Run:

The Kids Fun Run is a .30 miles run around the Finish Line Party and through the Finish Arch!  The entire course is on pavement and parents may run with their kids.  All registered Kids Fun Run participants will receive a t-shirts and a SWAG bag from our charity partner, Marathon Kids!
