90th Pikes Peak International Hill Climb Set To Go On Sunday, August 12,
After Postponement Connected To Waldo Canyon Fire
The venerable Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, launched in 1916 and an important part of Colorado sports history, has been re-scheduled for Sunday, August 12, barring any further threats to safety. Must have a Hill Climb Pass
The legendary race, originally scheduled for July 8, was postponed last week in the midst of the epic Waldo Canyon fire that forced 32,000 people from their homes around Colorado Springs, brought the destruction of close to 350 homes, and delivered an impact within the Pikes Peak Region in historic fashion with its tragic force. It is now called the most destructive fire in the state’s history.
Pikes Peak is closed to the general public.
