Winter Series 2021

Due to current and anticipated COVID conditions in El Paso county the Winter Series will be a virtual event this year.



WINTER SERIES 2021 - VIRTUAL EDITION: Please join us in running the the annual Pikes Peak Road Runners Winter Series!  To encourage social distancing during these unprecedented times, the Winter Series Race Directors have decided to offer our stellar running community a virtual edition of the Winter Series.  Join us over four winter weekends on four of our favorite running routes and show your support of the Pikes Peak Road Runners.

HOW IT WORKS: Participants must register for the entire series (all four races) on RunSignUp by midnight January 8, 2021, or for the individual race/races on RunSignUp by midnight on the Friday before the race weekend.  Participants must complete the courses on the designated days within the respective park’s posted hours.  Detailed start locations, course maps, and finish locations will be provided to each participant.

Membership Discount

The membership discount will be applied during checkout.

For the registration process to recognize that you are a Pikes Peak Road Runners member, if you have not already claimed your PPRR membership within RunSignUp, you first need to go to the Club page for the Pikes Peak Road Runners and claim you membership.  This is done as follows.

Go to:
(For Southern Colorado Runner members, go to:
In the left column of buttons, click on "Members".
Search for your name.
Click on "Is this you?"
An e-mail will be sent to the E-mail address of this user, which contains a link with instructions to complete the process.

Once your membership has been claimed within the RunSignUp system, you will then have an account with RunSignUp.  If you have a family membership, you can then add family members that live in your household.  Those family members will also be able to apply the membership discount.

When you register for an event that offers discounts to PPRR members, on one of the first Registrant screens, you'll see a "Have An Account?" message followed by a SIGN IN button.  Click on the SIGN IN button and sign in using your RunSignUp account information.  That will allow RunSignUp to recognize that you are a PPRR member, and the member discount will be applied.


The courses are gravel/paved roads, packed double-track, and some single-track trails, which may or may not be snow-packed, icy, muddy, rocky, slushy, uphill and/or downhill. Altitude will vary from 6,000’ to 7,500’. Temperatures will range from 50 to -25 degrees. There are no refunds for race cancellations or no-shows. Because the races are virtual there will be no course support, marshals, or aid available.


Depending upon when you run parking at some venues may be at a premium. Participants are responsible for the State Park day pass at Cheyenne Mountain State Park. The fee is $9 per vehicle. (Subject to change at the Park’s discretion.)
