Marathon
Manitou Springs, Colorado
Click to go to the web site for the Pikes Peak Marathon in Manitou Springs, Colorado

The Course:
These races are very difficult and physically demanding high altitude runs that should not be undertaken without significant preparation. Moreover, the Ascent (and ascent leg of the Marathon) have only limited stretches without a significant uphill grade.

Weather:
In a word, UNPREDICTABLE. Pikes Peak can create unusual and rapid weather changes above tree line. The temperatures may vary as much as 50° F (23° C) between Manitou Springs and the upper parts of the mountain. Those who ran in recent years may not remember that some years it can be downright nasty -- particularly above tree line. In 2004 we had 6-8" of new snow on the Peak on Ascent morning. Every day on Pikes Peak can bring rapid, frequent and extreme weather changes. BE PREPARED!!

Some weather specifics: Mean temperature at the start line usually is 60° - 70° F (15 - 21° C) by 7 am and at the summit 35-55° F (2-12° C) by 10 am, not counting wind chill factors. Late afternoon temperatures in Manitou Springs in August can be in the 80° s F while above tree line storm cells can drop ambient temperatures into the 30° s F; humidity normally is <15% (usually much less at higher elevations).

The vagaries of the weather on the upper portion of Pikes Peak cannot be overemphasized. Chilling rain, snow and sleet showers, high winds and dramatic temperature changes frequently occur in August.

Cut-off Times:
FOR YOUR SAFETY and that of the race support personnel, we have cut-off (mandatory turn around) times at Barr Camp, the A-frame, and, for the Marathon, at the summit. If you cannot make the cut-off times you will not be allowed to complete the race and you will not be listed as a finisher. No exceptions!

How to Avoid The Porta Potty During a Race

We've all seen it and most of us have done it ... 30 minutes (or less) into a race athletes are already looking for a port potty. The good news is that it doesn't have to be that way. The secret is a proper hydration plan before the gun goes off, and here's how you do it.
