Previously a 4-day event, Pikes Peak APEX will transition to a 3-day event in 2023, and is set for September 8-10 on three unique courses that showcase the world-class trail systems of the Pikes Peak region. The event will conclude with an outdoor festival at America The Beautiful Park featuring food, vendors, activities, and more on Sunday (Sept. 10). Specific course details will be announced in early spring.

Amateurs and professionals alike looking for a bucket list adventure and chance to line up with Olympians, pros, national & world champions are encouraged and welcomed to compete in the Pikes Peak APEX, presented by RockShox. Riders can test their skills by participating in a single day or take the plunge and participate in the full 3-day event. The 2023 event will also include an endurance trail running component with 5K, 10K and Ultra events for recreational and elite runners.

“Having the APEX under the umbrella of an organization like Colorado Springs Sports Corp. is a best of all worlds scenario for us,” said Micah Rice, Executive Director of the Pikes Peak APEX. “Now there are more resources than ever behind the event and we will still continue to raise money for the trails in the Pikes Peak region. We hope that the slight change in date and length will make the event even more popular for mountain bike enthusiasts coming in from out of town.”
