Presented by Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum at Online/Virtual Space

In honor of Colorado Springs’ sesquicentennial anniversary, the CSPM unveiled a new exhibit, COS@150. This robust exploration of our community’s history and culture features 150 objects, illuminates 150 stories, commemorates 150 years. Throughout the commemoration year we invite you to explore these stories through a series of regional history lectures.

About the Program:

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to race up Pikes Peak at breakneck speeds? Join Pikes Peak International Hill Climb champ Chris Lennon as he covers the last 100 years of this world-famous race’s history, and gives you the next best thing to being in an actual race car, heading to the summit!

About the Presenter:

Chris Lennon wrote the book on Pikes Peak, literally, as the author of “The Peak of Racing”. He is a longtime Pikes Peak International Hill Climb competitor, winner, and fan of the race. Chris is a local, who also runs MediAnswers, a global media tech consulting firm, and Winding Road Adventures, leading tours to Europe.
