The West End 3k Rumbles Though Downtown



There is this super-elite super-star society of thousands of people that call Boulder their home. Maybe you've heard their gentle steady footsteps passing you on the sidewalk, maybe you've seen them in nothing but shorts on the bike path, or waiting at a crosswalk like they have somewhere really important to be. Know what I'm talking about? Sure you do: runners.

They seem to swarm over boulder as often and as swift as all that cottonwood that somehow finds its way into your mouth or nose. If you tend to avoid certain areas or times of increased runner density, I have some advice for you: stay away from the West End tonight...runners are taking over. If you, however, enjoy seeing people jettison themselves forward in competition or doing so yourself, don't miss 5430 Sports' West End 3K tonight from 6 - 8 p.m.

The Annual West End 3K is a very fast-paced race by the tantalizing shops, restaurants and bars that the West End has to offer. Runners will suck air (or what little we have to offer) twice around down the West End of Pearl Street for a shot at the many awards up for grabs including over $3000 cold, hard, well-earned cash. The race is open to 800 racers total including wheelchair participants, kid's age groups (11 and under race 1500 meters) and walkers.

Plot out your sitting spot or check out the course here. Registration will be available for those last-minute sprinters at the start point between 4 and 5:45 p.m. for $20. This is a great event to watch and an even better one to race!
