It is important to the race committee to not just put on a running event, but to stage a competitive race. From comp entries to primes and prize money, the BTMR is doing what it takes to bring in the top competition!
Just as important to the committee is what the BTMR accomplishes when it comes to giving back to the community and mountain in which we live and play! 100% of entry fees are donated to 501(c)(3) nonprofit and/or volunteer organizations and/or community projects with additional money going to the High School Aid Station Challenge. In all, the BTMR has given back over $177,600 in donations with $66,000 going to area high school running programs!

It can not be overemphasized that this would not be possible without our awesome sponsors. Without them there would be no way we could charge as little as $15 for the race (less for younger runners or runners who have run every BTMR) because in cash donations alone the 2010 BTMR gave away $18,765.42 or $55.36 per finisher!
The Barr Trail Mountain Race is put on by RunPikesPeak, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization with public charity status. We are an equal opportunity service provider and a permittee of the Pike National Forest.

Sure there are other races that donate a portion of their entry fees to worthwhile causes but did you ever wonder what was meant by the word “portion?” With the BTMR you don’t have to wonder because again it is simple — 100% of all entry fees are donated to non profit organizations! We also work hard with our sponsors to be able to support other causes like the High School Aid Station Challenge.
