The Downtown Boulder Race Series continues this Wednesday with the Pearl Street Mile! This event includes a ½ mile race for children and a friends and family (non-competitive), competitive female, and competitive male waves. New this year is the Downtown Boulder Business Wave. This gives downtown Boulder employees the opportunity to compete against each other to determine the fastest business in town. At stake are bragging rights and a traveling trophy!
The Business Wave begins at approximately 5:45 p.m. followed by the kids’ race at 6:05 p.m., Friends & Family (non-competitive) at 6:20 p.m., competitive Females at 6:40 p.m. and lastly competitive males at 6:55 p.m. Following all races there will be an awards ceremony which will run right into Bands on the Bricks and an awesome concert by That Eighties Band! The race will start and finish on 14th and Pearl Streets.
You can register the day of the race (on 14th Street) from 3:30- 5:15 p.m. Prices for children (2-11) are $25.00 and $30.00 for adults. If you’re lacking in motivation, those who register get a FREE beer coupon good at Bands on the Bricks beer garden (which follows the race) or a FREE ice cream from Ben & Jerry’s for the kids! This is a great way to finish that workout.
Some fun things to look out for at the Pearl Street Mile include various vendors and our sponsors: Newton Running, Fleet Feet Sports, Athleta, Boulder Running Company, The Daily Camera and Ben & Jerry’s. Other tents include Colorado Heath OP, Xcel, Columbia, Guaranty Bank and Naked Juice!
The Pearl Street Mile is an event the whole family can enjoy! So come out for the race and finish the night with dancing and drinking at Bands on the Bricks, where That Eighties Band will be playing.
