Pikes Peak Ascent & Marathon Run Fest 

When: Thu., Aug. 18, 5-8 p.m. 2016
coloradospringssports.org

Colorado Springs is well known for our badass running community. We not only host races during the dead of winter and the blistering heat of summer, we even have a race that runs up a Fourteener. Yes, our runners once gazed upon all 14,115 feet of Pikes Peak and thought to themselves, "Yeah, I could probably run to the top of that." Then they decided in the 1950s to make it a marathon because scaling the mountain itself just wasn't enough. In addition to being badass, the community is welcoming; they embrace the plodding half-marathoners (me), the peppy 5Kers, the dabbling fun runners and the monster ultra-marathoners with equal enthusiasm. Want to meet these crazy kids and maybe make some new friends? Come out to the second annual Pikes Peak Run Fest tonight, a celebration of the camaraderie and love of the sport featuring local beer, live music, food trucks, local organizations and cool vendors. 5-8 p.m., Pioneers Museum, 215 S. Tejon St., free, pikespeakmarathon.org. — Bridgett Harris
