Colorado Springs, Colorado 2021-08-22 18:10:26 –

Southern Colorado — The 36th run of the Pikes Peak Marathon took place on Sunday.

Runners from around the world participated in Colorado’s 26.2 mile uphill race.

Athletes ran up the bar trail to the top of Pikes Peak at 14,115 feet above sea level.

After arriving at the summit, the runner ran down and crossed the Manitou Springs finish line.

Brendon Baxton, who has been participating since 1983, said:

Two-time Pikes Peak Marathon Champion Seth DeMoor has been training for months for this race.

“Entering today, I know I can do this, it’s painful and I’m a little bloody,” DeMoor said.

DeMoor fell in love with sports sacrifices, pain, and suffering.

“It puts us in another depth that people on this planet may not be able to experience because they do not take that risk,” DeMoor said.

DeMoor publishes daily YouTube videos on training and lifestyle to motivate runners like him.

“I hope that positive message inspires people to get out of what I say. Turn the doorknob every day,” DeMoor said.

Whether it’s a walk, a bike or a jogging, “it helps us to know more about who we are as people,” DeMoor said.
