Pikes Peak Ascent and Marathon 

When: Aug. 18-19 2012
Phone: 473-2625

For most of us, Saturday is a day to sleep in, catch a movie and, if we're feeling particularly industrious, do a household chore or two. However, runners of the Pikes Peak Ascent call Saturday "race day." They'll run from Manitou Springs up Pikes Peak — some of them only to do it again tomorrow, in a marathon up and down the mountain. That's called "the double," or, if you don't speak runner, "absolutely bonkers." From 5 to 7 tonight at Manitou's Memorial Park (502 Manitou Ave., $12/person,, the Manitou Springs Kiwanis Club is hosting a "carbo feed," complete with spaghetti, potatoes and dessert, as well as a host of vendor booths — and even us lazybones are invited. — Jeff Koch
