Ever hear of the Pikes Peak Ascent? How about the Transrockies Run? The Ascent is a grueling 13.3 mile run from Manitou Springs up to the summit of Pikes Peak. The Transrockies Run is a 120 mile staged run over 6 days going up and down some of the most beautiful yet unforgiving terrain Colorado’s mountain country has to offer.
Now, imagine doing both, back to back.
Team CRC runners Peter Maksimow and Alex Nichols are doing just that.
