Ascent/Marathon competitive entry - 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. 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 not the registrar/webmaster who is a competitive athlete himself. Past Ascent and Marathon overall winners already have a complimentary entry position reserved elsewhere on this page and need not apply for a competitive entry.

Runners will be accepted based on their bio, not first come, first serve. If more than 10 runners apply per gender, per race, less qualified runners will be turned away. Therefore, the determination of who is accepted can’t be done until after the July 18th 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 get a refund for your general registration if it is valid and and after you finish the race. On the other hand, if your competitive entry is not accepted at least you will still be in the race so long as your general registration is valid.

Note: This option is available from March 26th until July 18th with notification of acceptance by July 25th.

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

TCR series - complimentary award entry - 4 via invitation
The 1st place overall M/F TCR series winner and 1st place overall M/F Masters TCR series winner from 2013 receive a complimentary series entry. The entry can be used for either race series but not both.

Notes: This option is available until March 10. For this option you will be entering all three races at once for free. After the 2nd leg of the Triple Crown of Running those runners who have not completed the first two races will be removed from the Ascent or Marathon. Therefore, if you are concerned about your ability to take part in the first two races of the Series you should NOT use this as your entry method into the Ascent or Marathon! Instead, sign up for each Series race individually so that you will still be in the Series but you won’t be committed. However, you won’t be able to use your free entry option. On the other hand, if you also won a free or 1/2 price entry from the PPA/M you can use that to get into one PPA/M race using the appropriate link above. Then use the GOG/SRTR portion of your TCR award to get into those races for free by filling out a paper entry form available on the other races’ websites. The PPA/M portion of the TCR award is a duplicate and can’t be used. Signing up this way will still put you in the Series but will remove the obligation to do all three races. Finally, for those few who win two or more award entries via the Double you can only use your awards to sign up for the Double if you have an award entry from each race. Because there are so many combinations of this please contact the registrar before you register if you need clarification!

Use only if you are the 2013 TCR 1st overall M/F winner or 1st overall M/F Masters winner!
