more information from RRCA on the policy Following guidelines from the Road Runners of Clubs of America (RRCA), Pikes Peak Road Runners discourages and in most cases, does not allow use of headphones in its races. The rationale for this is simple: the majority of our races are held on trails, which are crowded with many other runners (and sometimes other trail users). Maintaining one’s sensory capacity during such situations is paramount for the safety of all participants.
This year we have the ability to see your results after the race in a mobile application for Android and iPhone devices! The application is called Bibs, and the Bibs app can be downloaded from the Apple Store and/or Google Store… and, Bibs is sponsoring our event so the app is free! You can also view the course map and details and share your race results on Facebook, email, and text… all within the Bibs app! If you are at the Veterans Home Run as a friend or loved one, you can download the app as well. Download the Bibs app and search for their Bib number shortly after the race!
Don’t forget to download Bibs before the race! :)
