It's a day to run, walk, skip, hop or jog. It's a day to celebrate YOU! Bring your family and friends to the 10th Annual Mother's Day Boulder T9K. Who needs breakfast in bed when you can start off your Mother's Day with fun for the entire family?! And don't miss the post race party - rock out to the music, and enjoy all of the expo vendors!


Boulder Reservoir, Boulder, CO (5100 N. 51st Street)


Sunday, May 13th at 9:00am


A scenic 9k + (that's a bit over 6 miles) run, jog or walk mostly on dirt trails


YOU! First timers to a race, seasoned runners, elite racers, joggers, walkers, skippers, and mothers with kids in tow – yes! Baby joggers are allowed; we even have a separate category for moms with baby joggers.


Chip Timing!  You’ve asked and we’ve listened.  You’ll pick these up with your packet at the stores or on race day.  But remember, that means you still need to get to the race on time, as the Start mat won’t be there much later than 9am! 

Personalized Bibs! How fun will it be to have your Mother’s Day race bib with YOUR name on it!  Everyone who sees you can cheer you on by name.  There’s only one catch:  Enter by April 29th to get this option. 

Race T-Shirts & Goodies

All race registrants will receive a super sweet custom T9K T-shirt from Title Nine.  The adult shirt is a cotton/poly mix – breathable and soft!  Participants will also receive a custom Title Nine bag of Goodies – click here to read more about Goodies in store for you!

Start Times

T9 Rag-A-Muffin Run starts at 8:15am
Title 9K+ Race (all categories) starts at 9:00am
The kids will have 3 age categories and line up accordingly:

  • 2 to 3 years = The Rumbling Reds
  • 4 to 5 years = The Blazing Blues
  • 6 to 8 years = The Yahoo Yellows

There will be pace signs for the T9K+ race to line up behind.
* All races start ON TIME inside the Boulder Reservoir gates. You'll see the balloon arches. Please arrive at least one hour before the start time.


The Boulder Reservoir has plenty of parking. It's getting to a parking space that can be tricky. The single road that travels into the reservoir can make traffic kinda hairy. So, we strongly recommend that you arrive at least one hour before the start time and to carpool in if at all possible. (If it sounds like we are repeating ourselves, that's because we are!)

Important for Spectators: The Boulder Reservoir will be charging an entry fee if you get there at 9am or after. Come early to cheer on your mom/wife/pal - and avoid the $5 fee!

Here are some other suggestions for nearby parking lots where you can meet up with a group of friends and carpool or walk in:

  • The Tom Watson Park lot on 63rd Street across from Coot Lake (west of IBM). Warm up with a 2 mile run on the Reservoir Dam road to the start line. Or you can carpool from the lot.
  • The Pleasant View Soccer Fields (on 47th Street south of Jay Road). Ride your bike or carpool from there.

Once you arrive, please follow the parking attendants' directions and hustle on in.

Riding your bike to the race?  Fantastic!  We will have a bike corral with volunteers to guard your steed while you run.  We’ll have a little extra snack for you cyclists so you won’t be depleted for your fun T9K run!

Packet Pick-Up

You have a couple of options here:

Early Packet Pick-Up: Highly recommended! We strongly encourage you to sign-up for pre-race packet pick up at one of our 3 Colorado stores. Packet pick up at the stores will be the week prior to the race. Picking up your packet ahead of time will allow you some extra time to enjoy race morning, eat your snacks, chill with a friend, or hang-out with your family before the start of the race.

Note: If you just can't make it to pick up your packet at a store, we will have it for you at the Resevoir race day. Just remember to get to the Rez extra early to get it!

Directions to the stores can be found on our store web pages:

Race Day Packet Pick-Up: You can pick up your race number and goodie bag on race day from 7:00am to 8:30am. Just make sure you choose that option when you register.
Important: Sign-up by May 4th to get the option of in-store packet pick-up.  If you sign-up after that date, you will only have the option to get the packet at the race site on May 13th.


The top three fastest women across the line, the top mom with stroller, and the first girl and boy under 18 will get awards, so stick around for the awards ceremony! Also, the Best Three Stories will also get awards. Please tell us your story about the power of running when you pick up your packet – we'd love to hear it!

Thank you, Timbuk2, for generously donating your classic and incredible messenger bags for our winner’s prizes!  We will fill them with fantastic goodies from several of our contributors.  What a treat to win a Timbuk2 bag and all the good stuff inside!

T9K Rag-A-Muffin Run

Do you have some little ones in your family 8 years or younger who would love to get in on the action? Well, we have just the thing...our Title Nine Rag-A-Muffin Fun Run. It's only about 50 yards and it's FREE!

The first race will start at 8:15am sharp, so please get to the Packet Pick-Up Tent to sign up your junior runner by 8:00am at the very latest. This pint-sized event will be run in three "heats" again this year. Here is how the fun breaks down:

  • 2 to 3 years = The Rumbling Reds
  • 4 to 5 years = The Blazing Blues
  • 6 to 8 years = The Yahoo Yellows

The race "course" is a next to the T9K+ starting line. The little guys and gals run about 50 yards on the asphalt road next to the expo.

There will be treats at the end of the races for ALL the little guys and gals. This is a great opportunity to get your kids exposed to the excitement and joy of running!

The main event starts at 9:00am, so if your little one will be participating with you in the baby jogger category there will be plenty of time to transfer your tuckered out tike into the jogging stroller for a nice relaxing ride with you. Sweet!

We will have a kids' activity tent and other games to entertain your little ones. We do not provide child care, so please make sure that all kids have an adult with them.

Oh yummy!  The little folk have such a great treat to look forward to after their very own “race”:  Zbar, Zbar CRISPY, and a Zfruit from CLIF Kid!  You know these wee ones are getting healthy snacks and good nutrition.  Thanks CLIF for refilling the engines of our Rag-A-Muffin racers so they can enjoy all the fun for the rest of the day!
