Final International Team Challenge Rosters Set for 2016 BolderBOULDER

May 25, 2016

The final team rosters for the International Team Challenge at the 2016 BolderBOULDER are set: Pending any last-minute substitutions, the following are the countries competing in the Challenge and the three athletes on their men’s and women’s teams (nine each for USA). Athletes with asterisks (*) will also represent their countries at the Olympic Summer Games this summer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

There have been three changes to the Team USA roster since the previous release: Names in RED have replaced other runners due to injury or scheduling conflict. Also, names in BLUE are last year’s winners. Finally, you can follow the professional races as they happen thanks to Todd Straka who will be live-tweeting updates from the race using the BolderBOULDER Twitter handle: @bolderboulder, and be sure to follow #BoldNation for all social updates.
