Jason Delaney and Touru Miyahara battled across the rocky face of Pikes Peak on Sunday in the Pikes Peak Marathon. They made the turn for home at the peak's 14,115-foot summit. But the race was not over. Miyahara, 30, of Japan, passed Delaney just above timberline, then had to out-sprint Alex Nichols of Colorado Springs in the last half mile to take the win in 3 hours, 43 minutes, 23 seconds. It was one of the closest races in race history, as Nichols, 28, of Colorado Springs, crossed the finish line 23 seconds behind the leader (3:43:46.) Delaney held on for third place (3:53:45).
