2020 has provided more than its fair share of challenges, but we are eager to host a top-notch race experience on August 23rd that provides a safe, fun, and challenging event for all those participating.
The 2020 Pikes Peak Marathon will look different from prior events: no vendor expo, no beer garden, no pizza, no post-race party… but you will still have the same 7,815’ elevation gain, great volunteers, and a momentous feeling of accomplishment as you cross the finish line in beautiful Manitou Springs, CO.
Please read this page in detail to be fully prepared for the 2020 event. If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected].
Thank you, and see you on the course!

Join us on August 13th at 6:30pm MDT on our Facebook page for a Facebook Live Q&A to answer all of your questions about the event!!
To decrease crowd-gathering at the start and finish area, live streamed video footage of the start, summit turn-around, and finish will be provided on Race Day on our Facebook page and the front page of our website. There will be three separate video streams, so all runners will be seen at all three locations; we will not leave the summit broadcast to cut to the elite finishers; the finish line will be seen at a separate link.
