“Pikes Peak Ultra was an event created to showcase some of the very best trails in Colorado Springs.”— Justin Ricks
Race - Jul 27, 2019
While on High Drive, stay out of the water in Bear Creek. Bear Creek has the last known native greenback trout in Colorado, see story here. Also, there will be no crewing or spectators allowed on High Drive. If needed, we will disqualify runners who have crew or spectators who don't follow this rule.
Once you reach the top of High Drive, turn left onto Lower Captain Jack's (#665), and continue down on the singletrack for 2.5 miles to the aid station. Cross the road, dont go through the tunnel, and turn left onto Spring Creek Trail for one mile.
At the fork, turn right onto the Columbine trail for 2.5 miles. The trail will then intersect with a paved road. Turn right and run up the paved road for less than a half mile to the parking lot. Once you have reached the last aid station, in the parking lot, turn left onto High Drive for one mile back to the gate. From the gate follow High Drive back to Bear Creek Road and through the park to the finish line.
