Many participants as well as active onlookers wore costumes, and some people carried flags to pay tribute to members of the military on Memorial Day.

Emma Coburn, an Olympic Bronze Medalist in last year’s Steeplechase event, was the official starter for the race.

The race, which starts on the streets of Boulder and ends at Folsom Field on the University of Colorado Boulder campus, has been held since 1979. It is one of the world’s largest running events.
