The 14th annual Barr Trail Mountain Race is Sunday, July 19, 2015. The 12.6-mile course begins in Manitou Springs, Colorado, and ascends Pikes Peak’s iconic Barr Trail to Barr Camp before turning, descending and finishing back in town.
Although the course doesn’t include the Manitou Incline, the area will be more congested and runners will be on Barr Trail. The race starts at 7 AM and most runners should be back down by 10:30 AM. It is best that you avoid being on Barr Trail between those times. If for some reason you feel it’s necessary to do the Incline and head back down Barr Trail during those times, please be courteous and give the runners right of way whether they’re going up or going down.
