Beyond Limits Race Day!

bb2.jpg

This is an ongoing group that requires participation from the beginning and throughout the training program. If you’d like information for next year, please contact Sherri Brown at brownsh@bouldercolorado.gov 

Beyond Limits is a BolderBoulder training program for Boulder County residents with intellectual/developmental disabilities.

The group meets Mondays and Wednesdays from late March until the big race on Memorial Day!

Walkers, joggers, runners welcome!

As an athlete, you will be paired up with a coach to train for the BolderBoulder. You will work with the same person throughout the training period; which helps you get to know each other and helps establish good pacing and motivational skills. The group trains together as a team, so there’s a lot of fun out there on the trail!
