Greetings, 2021 Pikes Peak Marathon and
Pikes Peak Ascent Runners,
We are excited and looking forward to having both the
66th running of the Pikes Peak Marathon and the 65th
Pikes Peak Ascent this coming weekend.
Remember that both races are in their own right mountaineering
events, where it’s not always guaranteed that
you will summit and where weather is always a concern.
Your safety and enjoyment are important to us, so please
be sure to be prepared for warm temperatures at the finish
and various weather extremes above timberline.
And please be sure to join us for our prerace expo and
festivities on Thursday evening and all day Friday. Our
program Friday evening will feature some longtime Pikes
Peak running pioneers, as they help us celebrate the
history of Pikes Peak.
Be sure to keep an eye on our Facebook page this week
for last-minute updates and more information.
The race staff, volunteers, and I hope you enjoy your time
in Manitou Springs and on Pikes Peak, and wish you the
best this weekend.
Live to run!
