Pikes Peak Marathon - Descent Portion
Course Records


Inaugural Race Year: 1956

Current Course Used in Years: 1976 - present

Current Course Info: The Pikes Peak Marathon starts near City Hall in Manitou Springs.  It follows Manitou Ave, turns left on Ruxton, goes past the Cox Railway Station and connects to Barr Trail.  The course then follows Barr Trail to the top of Pikes Peak.  Then runners come back down Barr Trail and finish in Manitou Springs near the intersection of Manitou Ave and Ruxton.  These records are for the descent portion of the course.  Most of the 1987 results did not include a descent time, so those can't be considered here because of lack of data.  The Ascent & Total columns are shown for reference.
