The streets and trails of downtown Colorado Springs are not exactly the "Frozen Tundra of Lambeau Field" but on Super Bowl Sunday (Feb. 3) more than 1,000 runners will race for paydirt there in the 9th Annual Super Half Marathon™ and Game Day 5K™. School bands and cheerleaders will also be there to ramp up the festivities.
This event is a fundraiser for the Pikes Peak Road Runners and PikesPeakSports.us, organizations that work to promote running, racing and healthy living in Colorado Springs.
Pick your race, burn some calories, celebrate your accomplishment with your friends, then head home and catch the big game!
In an effort to alleviate some of the congestion getting onto the trail, we will be asking that you, the participants, line up based on your expected pace. Signage and volunteers will be in the start area to help with this process.
NO ANIMALS, NO BABY JOGGERS/STROLLERS, NO EARBUDS/HEADPHONES, NO BIKES/TRIKES
PLEASE RESPECT THE SAFETY OF ALL.
For an extra $5, participants (half marathon and 5K) will receive a long-sleeved tech shirt. Both men's and women's sizing is available. Ladies sizes run a little small.
Race medal/bottle opener for all Half Marathon and 5K finishers (will come in handy during the Super Bowl.)
Half Marathon finishers will receive a commemorative Pint Glass.
Nerf footballs for all the kids!
All finishers of the Super Half Marathon and Game Day 5K will receive this handsome medal. It also doubles as a bottle opener, which comes in handy when watching the big game.

The Super Half Marathon™ can be used as a Pikes Peak Ascent Qualifier by running 2:25 or faster. Regisration for the Pikes Peak Ascent opens on January 1st. Thus if there are still Ascent spots open at the time of the Super Half race, you can qualify for the 2019 Pikes Peak Ascent. Otherwise, your 2019 Super Half result can be used to qualify for the 2020 Pikes Peak Ascent. How cool is that. Qualify for the Pikes Peak Ascent on Super Bowl Sunday, and you don't even have to leave town.
Teams are available in both the Super Half Marathon™ and Game Day 5K™. Teams can be all-male, all-female, or coed. Scoring is based on the cumulative time of the 3 team members that score for their team.
Male/Female Team Requirements
Each team must have 3 members. No more than 7.
Top 3 runner times are used for scoring
Coed Team Requirements
Each team must have 3 members. No more than 7.
The first male and female are used for scoring, and the fastest of the 2nd male/female rounds out the third scoring team member.
