Boulderthon in Colorado has announced a new partnership with Uber Eats for its 2023 event. The on-demand delivery app and website will be the presenting sponsor of the event start village where runners will kick off their race day experience on October 8, 2023.
The Boulder marathon will start and finish on Pearl Street Mall in the heart of downtown Boulder.
Throughout race week, Uber Eats will be partnering with local restaurants to offer exclusive discounts on Uber Eats for marathon participants. A promo code is already live and can be found on Boulderthon’s official Instagram page and subscriber emails. By applying the promo code at checkout, runners will unlock more discounts offered by participating restaurants.
“Uber Eats is dedicated to supporting local businesses and fostering connections within the community,” said Jane Bredeson, Colorado Senior Account Manager at Uber Eats.
“This partnership represents a wonderful opportunity for both runners and local restaurants to come together and celebrate the first-of-its-kind Start Village at Boulderthon. We’re excited to offer marathon participants a wide selection of delicious food options conveniently available to order for delivery or pickup with the Uber Eats app.”
Phil Dumontet, founder and president of Boulderthon, said “There’s no doubt that our participants will have an epic start to their race day thanks to Uber Eats’ support of our event.
“We’re so thrilled to bring the start line to Pearl Street Mall for the first time and this partnership allows us to do it in style. This collaboration is just one of the ways we continue to innovate and to delight our runners with an elevated event experience.”
After reportedly nearly tripling in size last year and selling out, Boulderthon has instituted a new 8,000 runner cap this year.
