The Leadville training camp is open to all runners! This camp is a great introduction to what the Leadville Trail 100 Run will take if you are considering the run down the road, or if you are using it as part of your training for this year's race. This camp will provide a great education from many seasoned veterans, as you cover the Leadville Trail 100 Run course over a three-day period.
Whether you're a "Race Across the Sky" first-timer or an old hand, we encourage you to join us in Leadville for an informative look at the country’s most scenic and challenging ultra-run course. Group training runs – both day and night – will familiarize you with key sections of the course. There will also be discussion sessions with race veterans to help you get the most out of your race experience. Come spend some quality time with us and get to know your fellow racers. Our training camp is an experience you will carry with you forever.
We like to think of it as a long weekend of good food, good running and good friends. Please note that the schedule may have to be adjusted due to the snowpack, but we’ll try to keep you informed as the run date approaches.

Leadville is a great place for a reasonably-priced family vacation. There are lots to see and do, and it’s a great opportunity for your crew to become comfortable with the course and familiar with crewing requirements — and, if they’re willing, we’d be happy to put them to work! Individual meal purchases will be available for family and friends. The cost is $8 per breakfast and $10 per dinner. So, if you know of extras, please let us know so we can get an accurate count to the caterer.
Call us if you have questions. We’re looking forward to hosting you for the Leadville Trail 100 Training Run Weekend!
