Boulderthon has established an elite althete program to bring world-class athletes from our own backyard to runners from all over the globe to our race series.

2023 Elite Standards


Marathon: 2:40

Half: 1:10


Marathon: 3:15

Half: 1:25

If you have met these standards at a USATF measured race in the last 24 months, please apply by emailing support@boulderthon.org and include a link to your PR. 

In order to apply for elite entry and race for prize money at the Boulderthon, athletes should have a clean drug test record. The Boulderthon will immediately disqualify any athlete that tests positive for using performance enhancing drugs. Prize money and incentive bonuses will not be awarded to athletes that test positive for performance enhancing drugs. Athletes returning from a drug suspension will not be recruited.
