Summit Accommodations

(Posted 2.24.2016)

The PPIHC has worked closely with Aramark, the Cog Railroad and Pikes Peak-America’s Mountain Staff to secure a competitor lounge for PPIHC finishers on Race Day.  The PPIHC has also coordinated access to the official Summit House on Pikes Peak.  Here is an update:

Summit House:

  • PPIHC will provide all competitors one meal at the Summit on Race Day! (one chicken sandwich or burger,  French fries or chips, a donut, and a drink {one refillable cup per competitor})
  • The Summit House kitchen staff will have a full competitor list and will provide one meal per competitor at times when a Cog train is NOT stationed at the Summit House.
    • We are very fortunate to have been given permission to utilize this space but need to respect the organizations that operate business as usual on Race Day. To comply with their needs, we have been asked for competitors to clear the Summit House when a Cog train arrives.  The Competitor Lounge will always be open for those seeking shelter from the elements.
      • We would like to continue this annual tradition for our competitors after the 2016 race, but in order to do so we need your cooperation in complying with their request. Use of this facility is a privilege, not a right.
      • Failure to leave the dining area when a train arrives will result in a forfeit of all additional meals being given to competitors who have not yet received theirs.

Competitor Lounge/Plant Room:

  • This lounge is nothing glamorous but is a shelter with restrooms where you can get out of the elements when the Summit House is not available. The lounge will have monitors connected to timing and scoring.  Printed times will also likely be available in the lounge.

Other:

  • A competitor gear transportation van will be available again this year from the Start Line Area to the Summit. More details to come.
  • If you have a smartphone or any other mobile device, internet will be available (for purchase) at the Summit.
