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 28th, 2019 for the 19th annual BTMR on “America’s Mountain”!
We are an equal opportunity service provider and a permittee of the Pike National Forest.


Barr Trail Mountain Race is at Salida Mountain Trails.

GIVEAWAY ALERT! It's International Women's Day! We want to celebrate all the strong women who take on Barr Trail and encourage more of you to join our ranks and #earntheshirt.

WOMEN'S DAY GIVEAWAY: Ladies, share a photo of your favorite running buddy in the comments below for a chance to win an entry to #BTMR2019 on July 28 ⚒⚙️ (Four-legged friends count!) The winner will be announced on March 15.

The national average for female participation in trail races is 42%, according to a 2017 survey by the American Trail Running Association, and our registration numbers so far this year are right in line with that figure. But who wants to be average? The BTMR committee is 50% women, and we'd love to see our women's participation grow to 50% this year.
