Running uphill quickly is more of a skill than a demonstration of power.


Step 1: Shorten stride & lift knees
When you feel the path tilt upwards, shorten your stride and lift your knees.

Step 2: Pull elbows up behind you
Pull your elbows up high behind you to help you turn your feet over quickly.

Step 3: Pump arms forward & back
Pump your arms forward and back, not side to side.

Tip
As you reach the top, don't ease off, instead push yourself back into a comfortable running rhythm.

Step 4: Look straight ahead
Look straight ahead—not down or up at the top of the incline.

The Pikes Peak Ascent half-marathon in Colorado starts at 6,295 feet and climbs to the top of Pikes Peak at 14,115 feet.
