Hosted by a town many pro triathletes call home base throughout the year, IRONMAN Boulder showcases a beautiful course and location.
Nestled at the foot of the imposing Flatirons, Boulder, Colorado is already a wildly popular home-base and vacation destination for triathletes. The city's health-conscious culture, near-perfect weather and breathtaking natural environment made it an instant favorite when it debuted last year.
Boulder's robust downtown, with its famous pedestrian-only Pearl Street Mall and idyllic Boulder Creek, will provide families and fans an unforgettable race day as they wait for their loved ones to cross the finish line. From five-star hotels to James Beard award-winning restaurants, Boulder's hotel and dining options are some of the best in the nation.
Once finished in the water, the first transition will start the athletes on a beautiful multi-loop course all contained in Boulder County. The course has a few pronounced climbs in it, but in general it plays out very fast. Once done with the two 40+ mile loops you will do the final 85-112 miles on an additional loop and roll into Downtown Boulder for the second transition at Boulder High School.
The two-loop run course is almost entirely on Boulder Creek Trail, winding along the creek and through city parks. Spectators will have multiple opportunities to cheer on the athletes and the last few steps of the day will take athletes up Pearl Street for a triumphant finish.

Come in your Halloween’s Finest!!! Conquer the Haunted Hills and Chase for a great cause!
The Spooktacular Chase first begun as The VRS Race to See in 2008. As the economy began to shrink several years ago, VRS saw its sources of unrestricted funds diminish.
Vision Rehabilitation Services of Georgia (VRS) had a desire to raise unrestricted monies that can be used generally, wherever it saw the greatest need to help the visually impaired. All proceeds of this annual event support the life-changing services provided by Vision Rehabilitation Services. Unrestricted funds allows VRS to meet the previously unmet needs of those who are blind or visually impaired across 31 counties of North Georgia.

Camp “Wheel A Way” is one of many camps for children with special needs at Camp Will-A-Way, a fully accessible camp that meets the needs of all children with disabilities. Camp Will-A-Way is located in Fort Yargo State Park, in Winder, GA.
Camp Wheel A Way is a weekend camp for children ages 6-30, with cerebral palsy. Children with CP face many difficulties in life, including making friends. At Camp Wheel Away, they have the opportunity to make friends with people who are just like them. There are no differences, only friendly faces.
Camp Wheel Away provides a fun environment for all campers. They have the opportunity to participate in a lot of activities, such as arts and crafts, fishing, archery, boating and more. Each child has the ability to experience new things at their own pace, taking their comfort level in to consideration.
All cabins have heat and air conditioning, to ensure the comfort of every camper. There is medical staff on site, all day, every day. The medical staff is trained to give medication and for emergency situations.
Several years removed from "The Broken Wheel," Brent and Kyle will race with a select few KPF athletes in New York.
