The Barr Trail Mountain Race is one of the Front Range’s historic summer mountain running events. The 12.6-mile course begins at the Cog Railway Station (6,570 ft) in Manitou Springs, Colorado, ascends Pikes Peak’s iconic Barr Trail to Barr Camp (10,200 ft) before turning, descending and finishing at the Barr Trailhead. Join us July 16th, 2017 for the 17th annual BTMR on “America’s Mountain”!

It's National Women's Day and BTMR would like to officially announce that we will be offering higher prize money to women compared to men. We raised both the women's and men's prize purse (top 3 overall) and will additionally offer a $300 bonus to any male and/or female who break the current course records.

****
The top 3 male and female overall will split an INCREASED prize purse of $1,650, with an additional $300 for men and $300 for women if a Course Record is broken (possibly even more prize money with the addition of sponsors). The male and female overall winners win a trophy Pick Mattock. These are like the ones used to dig up the granite and amazonite used for previous age-group awards. Overall winners are not eligible for masters and age-group awards. You will notice the the difference in prize money between the overall Male and Female Top 3. The gender pay gap in the United States between male and female workers is approximately 20%, with males making that percentage more than females. This is how we arrived at the amounts.

1st M/F $350/$420 – Pick Mattock
2nd M/F $250/$300 – Handmade Award
3rd M/F $150/$180- Handmade Award
