Entrance into the 2018 Leadville Trail 100 MTB will be open December 1-31, 2017. Winners will be notified in mid-January and automatically charged the $425 registration fee.

You may register for the LT100 MTB Lottery as an individual or a group. A maximum of eight family members, friends or teammates can click the group registration option. Group members will register individually, however use the exact group name to signify being part of a group. This will mean that either your entire group will be successful in the lottery or not – assuring no one will be left out! Please note that if a member of your group has completed the LT100 MTB under the designated sub-12 hour cut-off seven or more times or they have volunteered 10+ hours in the 2017 season they will be forfeiting their guaranteed entry.

If you are unsuccessful in the lottery process and still wish to participate in the LT100 MTB, you have the option to race one of our qualifier events to earn your spot in. Each Leadville Qualifying Series race provides 25-100 qualifying slots to the Leadville Trail 100 MTB, based on the total number of registered riders at each qualifier event. Half of the qualifying spots will be allocated based on the top age-group performances and half will be drawn among riders who have finished the qualifier race within the allocated cutoff time.
