Celebrate Memorial Day at the Renaissance Boulder Flatiron
Memorial Day is the perfect opportunity to step back and reconnect with family and friends over a long weekend. Luckily, the Renaissance Boulder-Flatiron is close to the fun-filled activities and special Boulder events hosted throughout Memorial Day weekend, in addition to year-round offerings like the area’s scenic hikes and famous breweries. Whether you prefer the thrill of theme parks, family-friendly festivals, or live sporting events, you’ll find all of that and so much more during Memorial Day weekend in Boulder.
Spend your Memorial Day participating in a 38-year Boulder tradition, the annual BolderBOULDER 10K. Deemed “America’s All-Time Best 10K”, and one of the top events of the year, the BolderBOULDER is largest race of its kind in the nation.
Join over 50,000 participants as you follow a set course through Boulder’s city streets that ends at CU’s Folsom Field. You’ll also discover fun surprises along the way including belly dancing, African drumming, live bands, DJs and more. The race is divided into 100 individual waves, allowing you to start with the group best suited to your style (elite runners, runners, joggers, and walkers).
There are also race-related events throughout the weekend, starting with the SportsEXHIBIT on the Pearl Street Mall on Saturday and Sunday, and ending with a Memorial Day celebration on Monday at Folsom Field, which includes the traditional exhibition sky dive by the Mile-Hi Sky Diving Team.
