Inspiring trek to the clouds and home again (General Comments)|
A Runner from Greeley, CO (5/2/00)
This was my second marathon, and the feeling of accomplishment when you cross the finish line in Manitu Springs is unbeatable. This isn't a race for the speed demons, the downhill gets a little crazy in places. Pikes Peak is for the road marathon who is looking to try something new. Dave does a wonderful job of keeping the focus of the race on all runners. My advice? Take a few minutes at the top of the mountain and admire the view. Also, thank the volunteers, the race depends on them.
