The Pearl Street Mile is a Boulder classic. This year’s race will be the 21st annual running of the mile through downtown Boulder, with runners of all ages and abilities starting and finishing in the heart of downtown Boulder. We will see a major change to the original course this year with the new course being a 2 lapped event.

The race will start on 14th and Spruce St and it will finish in front of Boulder’s iconic Court House located on the Pearl St Mall. The newly designed course will make it spectator friendly with Downtown Boulder’s Band on the Bricks and the new finish line in front of the Boulder Court House will certainly make it one of the most spectacular finish line backdrops. After the race, enjoy the Downtown Boulder’s Bands on the Bricks, which is Boulder County’s premier outdoor summer concert series taking place on the Pearl Street Mall adjacent to the race finish line. Listen to music from “That Eighties Band” and venture into the beer garden and enjoy a nice cold post race beer courtesy of Avery Brewing Company.

Colin is a Denver Metro native and avid adventurer. Whether he’s climbing volcanoes in New Zealand or exploring Copper Mountain’s glades on his snowboard, you can always expect two things from him, a camera in his hand and a willingness to stop and have a good conversation with just about anybody. Colin studied at 4 different colleges/universities in pursuit of his finance degree; however, he’s adamant that the most educational experience he ever went through was living in a van in a foreign country for half a year. That’s where his career trajectory changed radically as he discovered his passion for environmental sustainability and photography. Colin is now a media consultant and digital content creator, hoping his work will inspire others to get out, explore the world, and find ways to minimize their impact on the environment.
