See the start banner? It is a race!

If you do not like the risk of potential failure — stay home!

There are 363 other days you can hike Pikes Peak without cut-off times
to worry about. When you reach the top — be it your finish or your
turnaround — you can even buy yourself an “I made it” T-shirt.

Leave the race to those that know we do not always reach our goals
because if we reach all of our goals, we have set our goals too low!
