We are excited to announce a partnership with Aravaipa Running that has expanded The APEX and will encourage runners to join mountain bikers on the trails for the final day of the 2022 event. Aravaipa Running will join with The APEX to invite runners to choose from three distance options – all starting and finishing in America the Beautiful Park on Sunday, September 25, 2022.

“We are excited to partner with the Pikes Peak APEX to bring a new trail running option to the already successful mountain biking event they have created,” said Jamil Coury, Owner & CEO of Aravaipa Running “We have similar values as organizations and hope the run element of the weekend will compliment well with what has been created for the local community.”

PPORA supports outdoor recreation and the different groups and users that use and support the regions’ trails. We believe trail runners and mountain bikers have a lot in common. Our team is carefully planning the day’s activities so that we can ensure the best possible experience for both mountain bikers and runners.
