30th Annual Boogie’s Buddy Race

July 4th, 2016

7:00 AM Registration
8:00 AM 5-Mile Race
9:00 AM 1-Mile Family and Canine Walk





Start and finish at Rio Grande Park!

The race will start and end at Rio Grande Park this year!  This means we are close to the parking garage and public restrooms in the park.  It also means a slightly different route! Runners will still head down Rio Grande Trail, then up “Heart Attack Hill” on Cemetery Lane.  But then — a new twist!  We will take a left on Power Plant Road and wind through the west end of town, thus completely avoiding the confusion of the July 4th parade route, and return to Rio Grande Park.  Click here for the new 5-mile race map, and here for the 1-mile walk map. Register in person at Gondola Plaza on July 1, 2, 3 from 10am-7pm!
