Boulder Beast Race Day Details

 

CUTOFFS

Before signing up — Please understand that this event is not for everyone. It is 24 miles through some pretty tough and diverse terrain and will require some rigorous training on everyone's part. We have strict cut-off times at various places on the course — Zindel Park Aid Station Mile 11 (12:30pm), Team RWB Aid Station Mile 15.5 (2:30pm) and CRTF's Aid Station Mile 21 (5:00pm). The cut-off times are created to ensure our participants finish in the daylight. There will be no exceptions to these cut-offs. They are in place for the safety of our runners and the compassion we have for our volunteers. If you don't agree with our cut-offs, please refrain from signing up. Any runner disregarding these cut-offs will be banned from future Boulder Beasts and all PA Trail Dog events.
