This race is often called America's ultimate challenge and with good reason. Sure the race starts out like any other race. But your first left turn has you changing direction to go straight up. During the first 10 miles you will gain about 5,000 vertical feet. Over the next 3 miles you will gain another 2,000 feet. These runners will be running where trees can't even grow due to the lack of oxygen. The race ultimately is 13.32 miles to the summit with a gain in elevation of 7,615 feet. Then for the deluxe tour, runners must turn around and run back down the mountain. With blood filled blisters and lack of oxygen the runners must carefully make their way down, avoiding protruding rocks and roots that could easily send one sprawling to the ground to be mangled. Keep in mind that by that time, the temperature has risen around 30 degrees from the start of the race. Do you have what it takes to run Americas Ultimate Challenge?

Summer is officially upon us! It’s time to get outside, enjoy the warmth and have some fun! We thought we would share some of our favorite things to do during the summer here at The St. Mary’s Inn Bed & Breakfast.
The Bed and Breakfast is under new ownership. The new owners, Pam and Jay Piper, grew up in Sterling, Colorado. They were high school sweethearts who married shortly after graduating from high school. As a couple, they moved to Alamosa, Colorado, where they attended and graduated from Adams State in 1984. Pam earned her degree in Elementary Education, while Jay earned his degree in Business. As married students, the couple held many jobs during their college days. Looking back, the couple developed a unique fondness for hospitality through the challenges and rewards presented by their experiences as dorm directors for underclass dormitories.
In May of 2018 the Pipers purchased the historic St. Mary’s Inn, a Bed and Breakfast conveniently located in historic downtown Colorado Springs, which provides first rate room accommodations in a Queen Anne Style mansion built in 1896. Pam and Jay look forward to a new life phase in which their energies and attention will go towards continuing the standard of Inn-keeping excellence which has been established and maintained at the award-winning St. Mary’s Inn.
While visiting The St. Mary’s Inn Bed and Breakfast, there are so many opportunities to explore in the area. We have compiled a list of fun things to see and do in Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak Region for March and April.
