The Lottery was announced on Wednesday, January 12th, at 10:00 AM MT. All entrants have been notified via email. 

You may register for the LT100 MTB lottery as an individual or a group. A maximum of four family members, friends or teammates can click the group registration option. Group members will register individually, but be sure to use the exact same 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 that 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 time eight or more times, they will be forfeiting their preference in the lottery.




Due to high demand, we are unable to accommodate everyone that wishes to register for these races. Because of this, we will conduct a lottery selection process to choose which athletes may participate in the 2022 Stages Cycling Leadville Trail 100 MTB and Leadville Trail 100 Run presented by La Sportiva.

  • Athletes will have the opportunity to be entered into the 2022 Stages Cycling Leadville Trail 100 MTB and Leadville Trail 100 Run presented by La Sportiva from December 1st at 10 a.m. MST until December 15th at 11:59 p.m. MST. Registration for entry selection will be free of charge, but credit card information will be collected when you submit your entry and only charged if accepted into the race or if you choose to make a donation. A donation will not increase your chance of selection.
  • Selection and Payment of Entry Fees. Winning entries will be notified on January 12, 2022. Subject to eligibility requirements, the individuals whose names are drawn will be awarded entry into the 2022 LT100 MTB or LT100 Run. Selected participants will be notified by email in accordance with the information supplied and participant’s credit card will automatically be charged the registration fee, plus a processing fee and any add-ons selected.
  • All registration fees are non-refundable and non-transferable and subject to all other terms, conditions and restrictions of the Leadville Race
    • MTB – $475.00 + applicable processing fees
      • Tandem- $600.00 + applicable processing fees
  • Group Registration Details: The group registration option is recommended for family, friends and other small groups (up to 4 members) that ONLY want to race if they can do so together. The first athlete registering will be required to create a group name. It is essential for the remaining members sign up for the group with the group name matching exactly. For example, if your group name is “LeadvilleBigBuckles” the group name “Leadville Big Buckles” will not work. When the drawing selection takes place, the GROUP NAME will be the name entered in the drawing. If the group name is selected, every member of the group will be accepted and automatically charged the registration fee + applicable processing fees.
    • Please note that if a member of your group has completed the LT100 MTB under the designated sub-12 hour cut-off eight or more times or they have volunteered 10+ hours in the 2019 season they will be forfeiting their preference in the lottery
  • Only one application per person. You cannot apply as an individual and as a member of a group. Any registration fees processed due to an individual submitting multiple applications are non-refundable and non-transferable.
  • Athletes with entry to the 2022 event are NOT allowed to enter the 2022 lottery. Any registration fees processed due to an individual submitting multiple applications are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Life Time reserves the right to cancel, terminate or suspend the selection process or the event for any reason.

If you are unsuccessful in the lottery process and still wish to participate in the Stages Cycling Leadville Trail 100 MTB, you have the option to race one of our qualifier events to earn a spot in the race. Each Leadville Race Series qualifier provides slots to the LT100 MTB, based on the total number of registered riders at each qualifier event.
