Head west on Cimmaron (towards the mountains). Cimmaron is also known as Hwy-24. Proceed about 6 miles to the Manitou Ave exit. Turn right at the end of the exit ramp and proceed west on Manitou Ave. After about 3/4 mile, Memorial Park will be on your right. On race morning, parking is a problem. Arrive early and/or carpool. You may end up parking 1/4 to 1/2 mile from the actual start area so allow plenty of time.Weather on Pikes Peak7The weather on Pikes Peak can be very dangerous. Hail and lightening storms can develop very fast and put runners and volunteers in life-threatening danger. In the event of severe weather, cut-off times will be moved up for the safety of all involved. Cut-off times for the Ascent were moved up in 2004, 2005 and 2008.Triple Crown Series8The Pikes Peak Marathon (ascent leg) may serve as the 3rd leg of the Triple Crown of Running Series. The 1st leg is the Garden of the Gods 10 Mile Run in June. The 2nd leg is the Summer Roundup Trail Run in July. The Pikes Peak Ascent can also serve as the 3rd leg of the series. If a runner finishes both the Pikes Peak Ascent and the Pikes Peak Marathon, the 3rd leg of the series is the faster of the two ascent portions of those races.Volunteer9Can't run in the event and you still want to be a part of the action? Then get out there and volunteer and cheer on the runners. Dedicated volunteers are always needed. Check out the web site at www.pikespeakmarathon.org for a volunteer signup form.
