The hill on Costilla St. between El Paso St. and Wahsatch Ave. serves as an incline for the annual Pikes Peak Soap Box Derby. The cars are unpowered, relying completely upon gravity to move down the hill. About 40 kids participated in the annual Pikes Peak Soap Box Derby on Sunday, June 11, 2017. In each race, the racers go down the hill twice, trading wheels and lanes in the second heat. The kids have their own cars that they build and many even have sponsors.
