Race Info > Registration

Registration will open March 18th

Registration

Because the Ascent and Marathon are so unique and so physically demanding when compared to other half-marathons or marathons, all runners must first complete a qualifying event before registering.

If the qualifications you provide can’t be confirmed, you will be removed from the race and forfeit your entry fee! You will not be moved to another race, nor will you be allowed to transfer your entry to another person. This is a very expensive mistake so please avoid it.

Refunds, Switches, Number Transfers, and Deferrals

No refunds will be issued for any reason with the sole exception of Deployed Active Duty Military personnel in appreciation of their sacrifice.

Registration transfers are not accepted or permitted. If you are caught running with another runner’s number, you and the person who supplied the number will be disqualified and banned from future races.

Entries are valid for the current year only and can not be deferred or rolled over.

Entry Limits

Pikes Peak Ascent: 1,800 runners
Pikes Peak Marathon: 800 runners

Pikes Peak Marathon, Inc. is an equal opportunity service provider and a permittee of the Pike National Forest. Entry limits are set by the Forest Service and are for the runners on the course, not registered runners.

Doublers

Only Peak Veterans who have completed the Pikes Peak Ascent or Pikes Peak Marathon in the past 3 years (2012+) may register for both the Ascent and Marathon (known as "Doubling"). Doublers will be charged an additional $50 (payable with your Ascent registration). This fee is intended to discourage runners from signing up for the double. Due to the US Forest Service imposed entry limits and the fact that the race sells out each year, every doubler takes up a slot that would otherwise be used by another person. The fee will also cover the cost of the Pikes Peak Doublers shirts that all doublers will receive this year.

To register for the Double, you must register for each race separately.
