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!

The Mt. Evans Ascent has SOLD OUT. We will not be accepting any new entries for the Ascent, and there is not a wait list. We hope to see you on our start line in 2022.

Please DO NOT ENTER THE ROUND-TRIP if you are planning to drop out at the summit. This is not an option. Shuttle capacity in the vans that bring Ascent runners back down the mountain is limited due to COVID. This is why we are offering the Round-Trip option in 2021. Please respect this request. The mountain and the race will still be here in 2022.
