The Boulder Backroads Marathon was born in 1999, when local athlete and entrepreneur Lesley Kinder decided that Boulder needed a marathon. It immediately became a destination event and attracted 1500 runners in its first year. The race was known, not only for its scenic route and dependable on-course support, but also for its memorable post-race party. Bagpipers led runners to the start line of the original Backroads Marathon and a rowdy crowd cheered them in to the finish.
We have revived the spirit of the original race. The double-loop course is spectator-friendly and not quite as hilly as the original. The festive mood and runner-centered approach remain. The race expo will include some of your favorite local and national brands; the post-race party, headlined by Avery Brewing Company, and including food from Niwot Market, Savory Cuisines and more, will allow runners to refuel and relax with friends, family and fellow-athletes. Local companies Skratch Labs and V-Fuel provide on-course nutrition.
