Fort Collins joins the proud tradition of the BolderBoulder

April 27, 2017- Colorado’s Own Channel 2 proudly announces a new television partnership with The FORTitude 10K on Labor Day, the newest addition to Colorado’s popular running tradition. As part of the 2 Your Health initiative, Colorado’s Own Channel 2 is excited about this opportunity to work closely with the Northern Colorado community to promote healthy activities and events. Colorado’s Own Channel 2 will provide on-air race day coverage on Labor Day with live shows throughout the morning. Multiple KWGN reporters and anchors will be on-site to emcee the activities and broadcast the exciting race to the Front Range.

“We’re excited to get in on the ground floor of what promises to become a Colorado tradition,” said Joan Barrett, VP/GM of KWGN/KDVR. “Through our 2 Your Health initiative, we’re committed to helping Coloradans get fit and stay healthy. The partnership with FORTitude 10K is a great leap forward and underscores our commitment to the Northern Colorado community.”

The inaugural FORTitude 10K on Labor Day – September 4, 2017 – will take participants on a scenic course through Fort Collins passing landmarks like City Park and the CSU Oval as well as weaving through classic Fort Collins neighborhoods.
