Race Description

The 50-mile, out-and-back, course takes racers through the historic mining district on the east side of Leadville. Primarily on dirt roads, first set by miners and their burros. The route will take runners by and between many grand and historic gold and silver mines. This lung-burning, heart-pounding race starts at 10,200 feet and reaches 12,000 feet four times throughout the course.
