On Monday, the Bolder Boulder released the professional athletes that will participate in the International Team Challenge for Team USA on Memorial Day and the rosters boast some familiar names.

Former University of Colorado athletes Brent Vaughn and Kenyon Nueman will be joined on Team USA by Aaron Braun. On the women's side, Deena Kastor, former Buff Laura Thweat and Stephanie Rothstein will represent Team USA in the 10K.

Braun, who hails from Fort Collins, paced the Team USA squad that finished fourth in the 2012 team challenge. The Adams State graduate was fourth in 30 minutes, 11.02 seconds.

Kastor, who won bronze in the marathon at the 2004 Olympics, is a Bolder Boulder veteran with three victories in the race on her rèsumè. She was third (33:28.48) last year as Team USA finished second to Ethiopia.

"I'm very excited about this year's field. The U.S. and Team Colorado members are a mixture of seasoned road-racers and young up-and-coming athletes," Don Janicki, professional athlete coordinator for the race, said.

The men's Team Colorado members are 2012 men's "A" wave winner Josh Eberly, Tyler McCandless and Sean Quigley. The women's team includes Nuta Olaru, the 2012 women's "A" wave winner, Mattie Suver and Bri Nelson.

The International Team Challenge will feature 10 men's and seven women's teams made up of three runners. The athletes race the same course as the citizens for a total purse valued at $110,600 before bonuses, according to race officials.

"We are always very excited to host the International Team Challenge each year and feel that not only is it a chance to showcase some of the best professional runners from all over the world but that is also a highlight for every spectator and Bolder Boulder runner on race day," race director Cliff Bosley said.

The women's race begins at 11:13 a.m. and the men are slated to start at 11:24 a.m.
