Mt Evans Ascent
June 18, 2017
Although the air will be noticeably thin at the starting line, Echo Lake’s 10,600 feet of elevation is just the beginning. The climb totals nearly 4,000 vertical feet – much of it above treeline – as you make your way 14.5 miles to the finish line located at the summit of one of the most recognizable peaks on Denver’s mountain skyline – 14,264 foot Mt. Evans.
Spectators will include Bighorn Sheep, Marmots, and Mountain Goats – maybe even a few people!!!
OVERALL PRIZE MONEY: In 2017, the top-3 overall male and female finishers will win $300, $150, and $100 cash prizes for their performances on the mountain. The fastest male and female master’s finishers (age 40+) will also win a $100 cash prize.

In addition, all men who finish in under 2 hours 40 minutes, and all women who finish under 3 hours will receive a trophy rock marked with the year of the race. This is a tradition from the 70’s and 80’s that we revived in 2012. Please see our Race History Page for a photo of trophy rocks from the early days of the Mt. Evans Ascent.
