Pikes Peak Marathon (August)

The Pikes Peak Marathon is arguably the most elevating marathon in the world.


**Please note - Pikes Peak Ascent cancelled; Marathon is scheduled for August 23.

Runners have the opportunity to race 13 miles up Barr Trail to reach the summit of Pikes Peak – America’s Mountain. With the first race in 1956, the Pikes Peak Marathon is the third longest-running marathon in the United States. For those simply wanting to congratulate the race finishers, you can drive up part of Pikes Peak Highway and free shuttles will take you to the summit. The Pikes Peak Marathon Expo is where you can find sponsor and vendor displays and apparel sales the day before the race. Find qualification and entry information here.
