April 17-18, Boulder Public Library
Typical attendance: 200-500
Expected to be 600-800 in Boulder
$30,000 in-kind support
It's not expected to be ongoing.
Stage/hosting declined in 2019 bc it was during CU move-in and construction projects on Boulder Canyon and Lee Hill
Other stages in Steamboat, Avon, Golden, Denver
30,000 participants; $75,000 purse (larger than 2018 men’s)
Up to $25,000 in-kind support
Convention Visitors Bureau being asked to give $10K in hotel/lodging support
2018 event declined bc there wasn’t enough planning time (less than 12 months), too many road closures, full event calendar and many other full and half marathons, no event organizing experience from founder Phil Dumantet (Whole Sol Blend Bar owner)
Will end downtown and include closures on multi-use paths; typically not approved, but without Ironman (which uses path) only one event is using it in 2020
$0 in-kind support
Boulder (the city) pays nothing; race pays for support, police, etc.
Eubank: It's not even an option. It doesn't work for them.
So, OK, clarification to earlier tweet: NO Flagstaff.
Carr: That was from 2012 that other cities agreed to. That's not generally something we do.
Eubank: It's no one's fault, it's just that we as a community have learned best practices. "What we did in 2012 is significantly different from what we did in 2012?"
WHAT HAPPENED IN 2012???
Yes, Eubank says.
Wallach: I share (those) concerns. I don't want to micromanage this, but....
Yes, Carr says. It's standard.
