Congratulations - 5 Pikes Peak Ascent / Marathon Runners Joined Us at Eastholme B&B, Cascade CO

This past weekend was the 55th running of the Pikes Peak Ascent and Marathon. See our previous blog post for race details and stats. We were honored to have five runners join us for the weekend while they competed in the two events. Our hats are off to them all for an incredible effort. Running in these races is a special moment and one to be proud of.

Jared:  The most I've ever suffered - EVER.  I'll be back next year for more!  

Michael:  Definitely the most difficult thing I have ever done.  I loved every minute of it, can't wait for next year!

Jeremiah:  What comes to mind is, "Beautiful Pain".  While I left little pieces of myself out on the trail, I'm taking with me the grandeur of the mountain.  Until next time!
Jay:  Definitely America's Challenge.  Love the challenge.  Definitely the most difficult but well worth it.  Would do it again one day.  Will never complain about a hill again.  When my ironman friends call me crazy, I must be!

Thank you all for choosing Eastholme for your lodging and more so allowing us to met you on your quest. 

And don't forget this coming Sunday August 29nd is the first ever Assault on Pikes Peak bicycle challenge. Check our our blog post for details as well as our Google map
