NOTICE: COVID-19 Updates
We are excited for the fresh air of summer in Boulder and our team is moving forward with plans to host Tri Boulder as scheduled on July 19th. This race date lies well outside the recommended CDC guidelines limiting event gatherings. The Boulder Reservoir will remain open for passive recreation such as walking, running and biking, and the gates will be closed through March 29th.
SAVE THE DATE: JULY 19, 2020
‘The Beast’ Long Course distance will be back for its second year! As one of Colorado’s most popular summer triathlons, Tri Boulder offers many different multisport race distances, all in one eventful day.
Take in the natural beauty of the mountain backdrop that sets the scene for this iconic race destination. Most of the bike course will take place on rural Boulder county roads, with spectacular views of the Flatirons and surrounding green fields. Enjoy the after-race party with music, post-race food, plus an awards ceremony with awards and prizes. Mark your calendar for this epic race at the end of July! Over the last several years, it has been directed by Cedric Keppler and his experienced race staff.

REMEMBER YOUR PHOTO ID AND USAT ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP CARD (if applicable) - It's a USAT requirement that all USAT annual members show proof of active membership. If you paid the $15 one-day USAT fee during online registration, you do not need to show anything, you're all set.
Picking up your packet on race morning will incur an additional $10 fee. To keep our staff focused on pre-race safety checks and race coordination, we do not encourage athletes to pick-up on race morning unless they have to. You can pay the $10 race day pick-up fee when you register, or pay cash on race morning.
