Awards Presentations

Due to COVID-19, one of the conditions of holding our race is that we must eliminate any ‘gatherings’ before and after the event, including the awards ceremony. Instead, we will ask potential award winners to stop by the awards booth in the recovery area to confirm their results and, if appropriate, receive their award. Photographs will be taken.

Runners receiving an age group certificate are asked to stop by the awards booth and confirm their mailing address and preferred name for the certificate.

We, like you, look forward to the return of a real awards ceremony in 2021.

Awards No Shows:

Top 5 Overall and top 3 Masters must check in at the awards booth to receive their awards. Those that do not stop by may either pick up the award at the Pikes Peak Marathon office or have it mailed to them for $20.
