The legendary "Race Across The Sky" 100-mile Run is where it all started back in 1983. This is it. The race where legends are created and limits are tested. One hundred miles of extreme Colorado Rockies terrain — from elevations of 9,200 to 12,600 feet. You will give the mountain respect, and earn respect from all.
Still looking for an entry? We're pleased to announce an exclusive, limited time training offer that includes three months of one-to-one run coaching from two-time Leadville Trail 100 Run champion Duncan Callahan, plus entry into the sold out 2013 "Race Across the Sky". Only 10 spaces are available.
The 100-mile out-and-back course is in the midst of the Colorado Rockies. Low point, 9,200 feet; high point is Hope Pass, 12,600 feet. Majority is on forest trails with some mountain roads. Pacers allowed after the 50-mile point (exceptions only by request).
There are eleven, well-stocked aid stations along the course. Cut-off times for the aid stations do apply.
All or part of this operation is conducted on Public Lands under special permit from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.
In 2012, we had a great time at the pre-race expo and carbo-loading dinner. We're looking foward to more fun in 2013. Check back here for the schedule of events as race day approaches!

There will be trash and recycling containers at all full aid stations and the start/finish line. Please discard any trash in an appropriate container or within 100 yards of the aid station. Intentional littering on the course will be grounds for disqualification. The course — on trails both public and private — travels past many historic sites and through areas of exceptional beauty. Help us keep them pristine.
We will be recycling all plastic and aluminum during these races, and all our events. We’ll take care of this at the aid stations. At the start/finish, please ensure you place trash or recyclable materials in the appropriate containers, which will be well-marked.
Awards Ceremony will be held at 12:00 p.m. on Sunday at the 6th Street Gym. All awards will be presented at this time and must be picked up in person at the 6th Street Gym. They will not be given to others and will not be distributed before or after the awards ceremony. If you cannot pick up your buckle at the awards ceremony, send a check for $25 with your name, bib #, finish time, shirt size and mailing address to:
