Have you dreamed of running Pikes Peak? Now’s your chance! Marathon & Beyond is giving away two (2) free entries into the 2013 Pikes Peak Ascent or Marathon – one (1) for the Ascent and one (1) for the Marathon. The Ascent is on Saturday, August 17. The Marathon is on Sunday, August 18.
The Pikes Peak Ascent® and Pikes Peak Marathon® will redefine what you call running. Sure, they start out like a lot of races on Any Street, USA. But your first left turn will have you turning in the direction of up! During the next 10 miles, as you gain almost 6,000 vertical feet, your legs, lungs, heart and mind will be worn to a ragged nothingness. But it won’t be until the next three miles, with still over 2,000′ of vertical to go, that you will realize where the Marathon got its moniker—America’s Ultimate Challenge.
In order to participate in either the Ascent or the Marathon, you must meet Pikes Peak qualification requirements. Please click here to review the requirements before entering. Your qualifying race must have been in the last 3 years. Please note that there are requirements for each of the two waves of the Ascent and the Marathon. Be sure to check requirements for BOTH waves.
In order to enter, all you have to do is sign up at the box on the right. When you register, you will put “YES” in the box for the event you would like to enter. The contest runs from Monday, March 11 – Sunday, March 17. Winners will be contacted via email on March 18, 2013 and will be announced on our Facebook page and our website. Good Luck!
