Interested in learning or sharing little known Pikes Peak Hill Climb facts?

Join the Pikes Peak Hill Climb Historical Association, nicknamed “The Over the Hill Gang.” This dedicated group, formed in 1998, was originally tasked with protecting and preserving the history and artifacts of the Pikes Peak Hill Climb Educational Museum, which included cars, pictures, artifacts and memorabilia used in the Race to the Clouds on Pikes Peak. Members of this group meet monthly to identify historic photos, share stories of past races, discuss strategies to support the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb and work toward their goal to fund and operate a permanent museum in Colorado Springs.

As the Over the Hill Gang prepares for the 91st running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, our information-packed mobile museum featuring interesting displays will again be traveling through our community to share the wonderful history of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
