PPRR Mission Statement
The Pikes Peak Road Runners club is dedicated to promoting the sport of running, personal fitness, and community through organizing and managing running events, providing education and training, and creating venues for social and volunteer opportunities in the Pikes Peak region. We believe that running, training, and goal-setting enhance physical and emotional health. Hosting running events provides a valuable means to belong to a running community. We believe in encouraging participation in running events for people of all ability levels and acknowledge that volunteer participation is a foundation upon which Pikes Peak Road Runners exists.
