2024 Race Updates

WELCOME LEADVILLE RACE FAMILY!

We are looking forward to sharing yet another magical, dream chasing, soul changing race season with all of you! Thank you for all you bring, including all of your support to our local community. 

As many of you know, these events have grown from the timely vision of Ken and Merilee to address a critical economic impact with our local mine closing in 1982. From the first 45 starters in 1983, to 7 weekends of sold out events, we can all agree their vision has not only been incomparably realized, but has forged the path for outdoor recreation as a mainstay of today’s economic vitality in Leadville. 

We could not have imagined that today we would see weeks in our community with not just double, but triple and quadruple our population. This is an incredible gift, and also comes with very specific impacts on our community. With all of this in mind, I am reaching out to all of you to invite and request your support in how we manage the intersection of economic vitality with local impact.

2024 Leadville Trail 100 Run Changes:

First, the why:

  • These changes revolve around traffic and congestion both on highways and in public access spaces and communities.
    • The current congestion poses an unsafe level of risk.
    • Emergency Services are facing delayed response times for accidents in the area.
    • Travelers are facing delays between Leadville and Aspen. 

Ultimately, all of these changes are directed at increasing safety and the overall quality of experience for everyone! 

MAYQUEEN UPDATES

  • No Crewing at Mayqueen outbound / in the morning
    • We will be well prepared to support your athletes!
    • Crewing here in the morning will result in your athlete being disqualified from the race. 
    • This area will be staffed with law enforcement to increase safety and awareness, and it will only move in one direction clockwise around the lake.
  • Crewing at Mayqueen WILL be allowed beginning at 5:00pm until all runners through
    • Only 4 crew members + 1 pacer allowed. You will receive:
      • 1 parking pass
      • 4 color coded crew wristbands
      • 1 pacer wrist band

TWIN LAKES UPDATES

  • NO DRIVING TO TWIN LAKES
  • Crews will park/shuttle from Outward Bound.
  • 10+ shuttles will loop from Outward Bound to Twin Lakes Village between 5:00am-Midnight.

These changes were made collaboratively with local government agencies, with the greatest consideration for safety and experience for all.  Much like the climb out of Twin Lakes, up Hope Pass over to Winfield, … AND back, if something seems insurmountable, our athletes adapt and astound us every time. To give you, our cherished crews and families time to plan, we are providing the Athlete Guides for both 100 mile events well ahead of time. Make sure to read your Athlete Guide from front to back, and again! This will serve as a foundation to help you plan, but always check the website for most current updates!
