Sister Marion Irvine

It was on Memorial Day 1978 when Sister Marion Irvine started running. She recognized that she had a lot of pent-up energy that wasn't being expended. A niece suggested that she try jogging. At first, she thought it was a crazy idea. But, she invested in a pair of tennis shoes and shorts. She started out by walking stretches in the sun and running in the shade. She found she felt better immediately.

Sister Marion, at age 54, ran the 1983 California International Marathon, in Sacramento, CA, in a time of 2:51:01 this qualified her for the 1984 Olympic Trials. She became the then-oldest competitor, at age 54, to ever participate in the Olympic Trials. She finished the inaugural Unites States Olympic Women's Marathon Trial in 2:52:02. Sister Marion said that these two races were the most memorable of her running experiences. The Olympics Games did not include a women's marathon until the 1984 Los Angles Games.

During her running career, Sister Marion, broke numerous age group records. She was inducted into the Road Runners Club Hall of Fame in 1994, as well as the USATF Masters Hall of Fame.

Sister Marion is now unable to run because of stenosis and a hip fracture, from a fall. She still walks and hikes, with her dog Charlie, wherever she has the opportunity. Sister Marion is now 84 and has retired from her life as a Dominican nun. She continues to be very active, campaigning on social issues.

BRR Mission Statement.

Sunday Run: The Boulder Road Runners meet on Sunday mornings at the First National Bank of Colorado (30th & Iris Ave. rear parking area, across the bridge) The run is at 9 AM. The purpose of the group run, which draws over 100 runners on any given Sunday, is to act as a clearinghouse for the local running community and encourage networking within the club and with new runners. The club offers an entry-level membership of $25 per calendar year for an individual. Family memberships are also available. For detailed information please click on membership info for more details.

Many of our club members meet on a regular basis throughout the week. Sundays is the best day to meet and greet many of these individuals. We provide free cinnamon rolls, muffins, bagels and cookies from The Great Harvest Bread Co. and refreshments compliments of PowerBar. These are provided to encourage runners to stick around after the run and talk about their running needs.
Local Events:The BRR supports many of the local running events in Boulder, including, Earth Day 5K, The Bolder Boulder on Memorial Day, CU @ Turley's Turkey Trot (Thanksgiving Day.), Avery’s 4k on the 4th of July, The RUN Boulder Race Series (West End 3k, Pearl Street Mile and the September race to be announced), the BRR summer track series (first & third Thursdays of each summer month), Columbine Mile Marathon, and The Rocky Mt. Shootout XC meet on the CU South Campus/Buffalo Ranch. We also compete as a team at national events such as the USATF National Club Cross Country Championships.
