BCAA and the Bolder Boulder

BCAA is looking to partner with and supply entertainment for the 2015 10K race on Memorial Day - Monday, May 25

Share your ideas with this Bolder Boulder Interest Form

Runners World Magazine calls it America's All-Time Best 10K, with 50,000 runners and tens of thousands more fans along the course. With such a large audience, BCAA sees an incredible opportunity to bring attention to the arts and showcase our talented Boulder County artists.

We initiated talks with the Bolder Boulder team and are looking for interest from YOU, our members. We have identified several locations for performances and installations.  This is an amazing opportunity to show Coloradoans how ART and BUSINESS can partner together for the good of the whole community.  By the beginning of April we will be finalizing ideas, so we need to hear from you quickly. Share your ideas and level of interest on this form.
