Team Boss CO Mile + 2 Mile 4 REAL

Tue November 7, 2023 Niwot, CO 80503 US Directions


Niwot High School
8989 Niwot Rd
Niwot, CO US 80503



Due to the current weather forecast for Wednesday (and Thursday), we've made the decision to move up our meet to Tuesday, November 7th. The weather for Wednesday and Thursday would likely create a miserable situation for all involved (athletes most importantly, but also timers, sponsors, spectators, etc.). And performances would likely suffer. The plan is to stick to our time schedule with our races starting at 5pm. We'll post a more finalized schedule here soon based on entries.

Team Boss & REAL Training present:

The Team Boss Colorado Mile
& 2 Mile 4 REAL

Team Boss & REAL Training are joining forces to offer 2 events in one, both under the lights on Niwot High School's speedy track!

    • The Team Boss Colorado Mile—the third edition of the Team Boss Colorado Mile, a series of middle school and high school mile races set up for you to run fast and raise funds for the Sachs Foundation!
    • The 2 Mile 4 REAL—our popular 2 Mile is back on the track again this year!

Please reach out to meet director Tim Geldean with any questions—thank you:

Hosted by Team Boss & REAL Training

What's the Team Boss Colorado Mile all about?

  • Team Boss is joining in the fun and doing it for a great cause—the Sachs Foundation!
  • Who can race? Middle school and High school athletes.
    • The middle school and high school fields will be paced by professional runners!
      • Team Boss athletes will pace the Girls races!
      • Tinman athletes will pace the Boys races!
  • The Sachs Foundation provides college scholarships for Black and African American students in Colorado. After Team Boss raised $30,000 for the cause in 2020, the Sachs Foundation created a new scholarship: The Team Boss Equity Scholar. Our goal is to raise enough to reendow the scholarship for 2023!
  • We want to create opportunities for young athletes in our community! We will provide local pros to pace high-schoolers to their own bests. Test your fall training before cross country ends and hang around to cheer for your friends!

What's the 2 Mile 4 REAL all about?

  • The 2 Mile 4 REAL began as an opportunity for high school athletes to tune up between the end of the Colorado racing season and Nike Cross Regionals Southwest (NXR SW).
  • Being only 2 miles, it's also a chance for athletes to get a feel for what paces they'll be hitting at sea-level for upcoming races: NXR SW the following week and NXN/RunningLane a few weeks later.
  • For all athletes, it's also an ideal opportunity to PR on the track when they're XC fit!
  • Depending on the number of entries, we'll have multiple sections so every runner will be racing with their athletic peers.
  • Who can race?
    • Everyone: HS athletes, MS athletes, community runners, adults, masters, youth, coaches, pros, etc.

Learn more about the Sach’s Foundation:

Each of us understands that the ability to chase our dreams is a privilege. The opportunity to pursue our passions is the heartbeat of this team and we aim to spread it in our community. To underline our commitment, we are raising funds for Sachs Foundation, whose mission is to provide educational opportunities to Black and African American residents of Colorado.

The Sachs Foundation was first envisioned in 1927 when Henry Sachs promised family friend Effie Stroud, the top student at Colorado Springs High School, that he would pay for her to attend Colorado College. Mr. Sachs personally supported Effie, but it was her brother Dolphus who became the first official Sachs Foundation scholar.

Dolphus Stroud was a phenomenal student and accomplished middle distance runner who qualified for the 1928 Olympic Trials. Dolphus was denied many opportunities because of his race: joining his high school track team, living in the dorms at Colorado College, and riding the USOC train to the Olympic Trials in Boston. None of the above deterred his spirit. Dolphus walked and hitchhiked from Colorado Springs to Boston, arriving a mere six hours before the 5000m Trials Final. He made it 2400m before collapsing due to fatigue and undernourishment. Dolphus remained undeterred. He worked and trained for the summer in Cambridge before starting school and running track at Colorado College. Dolphus earned academic honors and a place in the CC Sports Hall of Fame.

His story inspires us to step up for our Colorado community. We hope you can join us in supporting Sachs Foundation to continue their storied history of providing opportunities for Black students in Colorado.
