Each year, the Boulder Mountain Marathon is one of the top Denver Activities, bringing many visitors to our Denver Accommodations. Hotel Teatro is a great centrally-located Denver Hotel that is situated in the heart of Downtown Denver, just moments from exciting Denver Activities like Sporting Events, dining at Denver Restaurants, and Shopping in Denver. Our Hotel Guests love our Denver Hotel because it’s also located minutes from all of the fun Things to Do in Boulder, such as attending the Boulder Mountain Marathon.

This year’s Boulder Mountain Marathon will surely bring many runners to our Denver Hotel, but some of our Guests who are in town for other reasons may like to attend the Marathon to simply cheer on the participants. The 2014 Boulder Mountain Marathon takes place on Sunday, May 4th, at the City of Boulder Reservoir and on the Boulder Backroads. It’s called Colorado’s Best Marathon by Colorado Runner Magazine, and Runner’s World Magazine says it’s the “Nation’s Best Kept Secret.”

Why You Should Attend the Boulder Mountain Marathon:
The May Boulder Mountain Marathon is officially known as the Boulder Spring Half Marathon, and it offers 10-mile and 5-mile races that runners and walkers can participate in. There is a cap of 2,000 runners, which makes the Boulder Mountain Marathon one of the most fun Activities in Denver to watch, as you’ll surely be able to get a great, up-close-and-personal view of the skills and endurance that is required for participants to finish the race.

Whether you are running in or watching the 10-mile and 5-mile Boulder Mountain Marathon, it’s highly likely that enjoy the beautiful backroads scenery surrounding the entire event. The Marathon takes runners through gorgeous farmland just north of Boulder, and it offers breathtaking views of the Colorado Rockies and Long Peaks. If you want to experience the backroads in a way that is incomparable, attend the Boulder Mountain Marathon and prepare for a real treat. The dirt running surface for this race is more forgiving than hard pavement, which racers appreciate tremendously and it lends to a nice, hometown race feel.

  • Race Time for the Boulder Mountain Spring Half Marathon Starts at 8:45 a.m. for the 10-mile race and 9 a.m. for the 5-mile race.
  • Runners and walkers are welcome, as the Boulder Mountain Marathon caters to all types of racers.
  • The race course is open for a full 4 hours on race day, so you’ll have plenty of time to get across the finish line no matter how you traverse the backroads.

Interesting Facts About Attending the Boulder Mountain Marathon:

If you’ve never run in the Boulder Mountain Marathon, you’ll quickly find that this race is the exact opposite of a “big city” marathon. The major crowds are non-existent, there is plenty of fresh clean air, and the running surface is more forgiving.
