We are saddened to announce that this year’s Ascent has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The size and format of this event, a one-way race of 1,800 runners to the top of Pikes Peak with van transportation to the base, drove the decision to cancel it outright. Both the large number of runners and the need for safe transportation off the summit are problematic due to COVID-19 restrictions. With social distancing requirements, race organizers could not secure enough vans or volunteer drivers to carry runners down safely and in a timely manner.
As well, with the summit being an active construction site, there simply isn’t sufficient space to protect hundreds of runners as they queue up for the ride back down, especially in adverse weather. The construction also means we cannot allow personal vehicles to travel to the summit to pick up their runners. While organizers considered the option of a 13-mile race halfway to the summit and back down, the trail congestion would have been problematic from a public health standpoint.
These complications unique to the Ascent have tied the Board of Directors hands. With the large number of runners, limited options at the summit, a safe, efficient, and enjoyable event simply isn’t possible.
Due to these circumstances, we are offering currently registered Pikes Peak Ascent runners the following options:
Runners may make a selection by filling out the form below. Runners have until July 1st to make a selection. At that time we will issue a refund for any remaining registrations.
