It’s summer time here in the Rocky Mountains, and that could only mean one thing… It’s race season! Grab your sneakers, throw on some gym clothes, and join us for any of the following events:
On July 9th, Emergicare’s medical team will be volunteering at the Summer Round Up Trail Run. As the second event of the Triple Crown of Running, this 12k race features fantastic views of the state, competition is almost every age-group, and a chance at prizes, including a shirt just for finishing the race. Summer Round Up has come to be iconic in the region, as the course is changed every year so runners never experience the same race twice.
We cap off a summer of races with the Pikes Peak Ascent and Marathon. This legendary marathon kicks off with the Fan Fest Packet Pickup on August 18th, beginning at 9 a.m. and running through 7 p.m. Here our expo team will be out in full force, as well as apparel sales, an Elite Athlete Press Conference, and a spaghetti dinner. It’s sure to be an exciting beginning to one of the top marathons in the country and the final event of the Triple Crown of Running. Our medical team will also be there to provide care to runners for both the Ascent portion of the race (August 19th) and the Marathon (August 20th). The race up America’s Mountain sells out every year, with limits of 1,800 runners for the Ascent and 800 runners for the Marathon. Some brave souls, known as doublers, even run both races! Every year this event draws some of the most interesting people with stories you have to hear to believe. There are even designated areas for those who just want to spectate. Emergicare is proud to sponsor this event, as well as provide the necessary medical support. This gathering of athletes is an experience unlike any other, and we hope you get a chance to partake in the festivities!
