Pikes Peak International Hill Climb

June 30

The Climb

The Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is the second oldest motorsports race in America and a long-standing tradition in Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak Region. The race is run on a 12.42 mile course with 156 turns! There is no other race course in the world like the hill climb, which is why the event attracts race crews that are willing to spend several hundred thousand dollars and months of preparation to compete for the right to be King of the Mountain.

For up to date information be sure to visit the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb Website Directly.
