Although the air will be noticeably thin at the starting line, Echo Lake's 10,600 feet of elevation is just the beginning.


Registration will be limited to the first 175 Ascent entries and the first 175 Round-Trip entries received. Sorry, there will be no race day registration and there will not be a waiting list for this event.

In addition to the most spectacular run you will ever do, your entry includes a custom Mt. Evans Ascent long-sleeve technical shirt, a finishers medal to all finishers, the chance to earn a coveted Mt. Evans Ascent Trophy Rock, four well stocked aid stations, a ride back down the mountain, and a tasty post-race meal!

Registration for the Mt. Evans Ascent and Round Trip open at 9am on January 1st. We hope to see you on our start line in 2022.

Round Trip entrants may not switch to the Ascent after the Ascent has sold out due to limited space in shuttle vans.
