More than 50,000 ran the Bolder Boulder this year, finishing with impressive times.

Brandon Johnson, who won the civilian race, finished in just 30:20, the top five following soon after.

“It was a rough one for me,” said Scott Dahlberg, who finished in the top 5.

The 38th annual race held on Memorial Day finished where it always does, at Folsom Field, where a crowd of supporters gathered to cheer on the runners and those completing the race in wheelchairs.

“I’ve been doing this race I was 6 years old,” said Jordan Jones, “and it is the best day of the year here in Boulder, Colorado.”

Monday’s weather proved ideal for runners, who started just as the sun was coming up at around 7 a.m.

Participants went through the more than six miles around Boulder, finishing their day with the annual Memorial Day Tribute celebration held at Folsom Field.

“It’s great to wake up on Memorial Day put out a hard effort,” said Jordan Jones, “and yeah, pay tribute.”
