Award / Competitive Registration

Entries on this page are NOT for general registration.

Use this page only if you are a Pikes Peak overall race winner from any year, 2016 top 10 overall / top 5 masters, 2016 1st place age-group winner, 2016 TCR Series top 5 overall / top 5 masters, or you are seeking a competitive entry.

If you do not fall into one of the above categories, you need to return to the General Registration page.

  • Competitive entry request: March 31 - July 1st

Former Winner Complementary Ascent or Marathon Entry - Open March 1st -> August 13

Ascent/Marathon Competitive Entry - up to 40 via qualification

The Pikes Peak Ascent and Marathon will distribute up to 10 competitive entries per gender, per event, for a total of up to 40 entries, to runners who show that they can be competitive for a top 10 overall position. These entries are for the sole purpose of attracting top performing distance runners and to provide the best possible field of competitive runners.

The decision is made by the Race Director and PPM Board, not the registrar/webmaster who is a (not very) competitive athlete himself.

Runners will be accepted based on their bio, not first come, first serve. Therefore, the determination of who is accepted can’t be done until after the July 1st entry deadline. If this is a concern you should apply for the race through the general registration process and then also apply for a competitive entry. If your competitive entry is accepted you will receive a refund for your general registration after you finish the race.

Note: This option is available from March 31st until July 1st with notification of acceptance by July 15th.

Use only if you can show you can be competitive for a top 10 overall position!
