more information from RRCA on the policy Following guidelines from the Road Runners of Clubs of America (RRCA), Pikes Peak Road Runners discourages and in most cases, does not allow use of headphones in its races. The rationale for this is simple: the majority of our races are held on trails, which are crowded with many other runners (and sometimes other trail users). Maintaining one’s sensory capacity during such situations is paramount for the safety of all participants.
This race is a fund raiser for Pikes Peak Road Runners and PikesPeak Sports.us, local organizations that work to promote running and racing in the Pikes Peak Region.
Pick your race, burn some calories, celebrate your accomplishment with your friends, then head home and catch the big game!
