REGISTRATION UPDATE: As of 9:40pm this evening our race has filled to capacity. Thanks to all who signed on early. We truly appreciate your support. If you missed this window of opportunity there's a Plan B: Sign on to the Wait List. History tells us that if you're among the first hundred or so to join the wait list you will almost certainly get in. Withdrawals really start to pick up steam as we approach the end of summer so don't despair! Get on the wait list early, sit tight, and watch for your emailed invitation from RunSignUp. You'll have 2 days to respond to your invitation, after which time you'll be skipped and we'll move on to the next person on the list. Be patient, watch your email (and spam box!), and you're likely to be joining us in October.


Burke Recovery cordially invites you and your friends to join us for the 2018 Peak to Creek Marathon, formerly known as the Ridge to Bridge Marathon. Our 13th annual event is a go: P2CM18 is scheduled to take place at 8:00am on October 27th.

Just as it has every year, P2CM is hosted by the Burke Council and is headed up by the same organizers (David & Rhonda Lee) who have helped make this a must-do event since 2006.

Back for 2018: Regular, old online registration that opens at noon eastern time on May 1st (same as last year). Also returning: An official cap of 400 participants from the get-go. Please see the race page for details.

We're proud to say this is a pretty cool race. Lots of people have dropped by over the years to join us, many of whom turned in some pretty fast times. Our little marathon has been among the top 10 courses in the USA to qualify for the Boston Marathon over the past few years. Those who didn't just came by for the views or to enjoy some barbecue with us after the race. Whatever your goal, ours is the same: we want you to leave here feeling like this is a race that has to be on your calendar year after year. Wilson Creek offers a steady flow of cool, mountain water for you to wade into after you finish. We'll be there, too, to congratulate you.

Please note that we do our best to discourage our runners from having friends and family driving the course to find spots from which to see you run. Every extra vehicle on the course only detracts from the experience to be enjoyed by other runners. We ask that each of you do your part to help keep our footprint as small as possible. Your fellow runners, visitors to the Wilson Creek area, and the U.S. Forest Service will truly appreciate it.
