Description

The point-to-point course returns for the Marathon in 2017, and the Marathon is a Boston Qualifier course!!!

The Pikes Peak Road Runners American Discovery Trail Marathon supports PPRR and the Trails and Open Space Coalition. The scenic course along paved and dirt trails is about as fast and flat as you can find in Colorado.

All proceeds directly benefit local trails and local non-profits dedicated to trail stewardship and community running events in Colorado Springs.

The ADT Marathon is recognized as a premier race event by local and out-of-state runners, and is proud to celebrate its 17th year in 2017!

Join over 1,000 runners competing in the marathon, half marathon, or 10K in 2017.  The Marathon course is point-to-point, starting at Palmer Lake Regional Park near Palmer Lake, and finishing at America The Beautiful Park near downtown Colorado Springs.  The Half Marathon and 10K are out-and-back courses, starting and finishing at America The Beautiful Park.

Runners will be treated to fast courses, a tech tee, finisher medal, and a fun Labor Day post-race party. Plus, the outstanding volunteers and course support you’ve come to expect from Pikes Peak Road Runners.

We are also honored to announce that the American Discovery Trail Marathon has been selected as the 2017 State Championship Race for the Road Runners Club of America. 

Come for the scenic, speedy course, come back for the amazing volunteers, and stay for the live music, crowd-pleasing spread and beer garden at the post-race party in the heart of Colorado Springs.
