Each year the Pikes Peak Road Runners hold the "Our Great Race" to celebrate the club's birthday. There were 36 candles on the cake this year. Some 42 runners tackled a 5K course and a few brave runners turned on the jets in a 1-mile race.
Among the men, Dan Vega won both races, covering the mile 5:17 in and the 5K in 17:57. In the women's races, Sharon Dieter, 57, won the 5K in 23:10, while Stephanie Courson, 37, won the mile in 8:42.
