Triple Crown Series
This is the 2nd leg of the Triple Crown of Running. The 1st leg is the Garden of the Gods 10 Mile Run in June. The 3rd leg is either the Pikes Peak Ascent or the ascent portion of the Pikes Peak Marathon in August. If you run both the Ascent and the Marathon, then the faster of your two ascent times will be used for scoring.
