LEADVILLE TRAIL 100 RUN CAMP

June 25-28, 2021

Open to all runners, this camp offers an introduction to the Leadville Trail 100 Run presented by La Sportiva  and is the perfect training tool for this year’s race. Seasoned veterans provide a great education as you cover the LT100 Run course over a three-day period June 25-28, 2021

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, and discussion sessions with race veterans will 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 located approximately 100 mountainous miles west of Denver. Plan to arrive early to account for the two-hour travel time from Denver International Airport. For your return flight, keep in mind that Sunday afternoons traveling back to Denver are often characterized by heavy traffic and can take significantly longer than two hours.

You are responsible for your transportation to, from and in Leadville. We suggest the following options:

Rental car (depending on bike transport, opt for a two- to four- passenger vehicle)
Avis: 303-342-5500
Hertz: 303-342-3800

Colorado Mountain Express charter service. CME charters vans and will take a group all the way to Leadville. They can accommodate 10 people per van without bikes, or five to seven with bikes for a charter price of $390/van (each way). They can arrange different pick-up times with enough advance notice.

When you receive your registration link next week, please check out the FAQs on the event registration page for important deadlines and further information. We understand that a lot has changed this year and some athletes are still uncomfortable with the thought of racing next August. If you would prefer to defer your 2021 entry to 2022 or 2023 we are happy to accommodate that request.

If you deferred into the 2021 Run Camp + Entry:

 During your 2021 deferral registration through your personal Reserved Entry link you will be asked to select either:  “Racing 2021!” or, “Please roll my deferral to 2022.” All athletes will still need to continue through and complete their registration.  If you choose to roll your deferral into 2022, you will receive an automated email from RunSignUp confirming your deferral within 5-10 days.
