June 13-16, 2024

Increase your chances of capturing that coveted Life Time LT100 MTB belt buckle by attending the Life Time Leadville Trail 100 MTB Training Camp presented by Kenetik.

Across three days, you’ll cover every mile of the legendary course with special attention to the most grueling sections: Powerline, St. Kevins and the iconic Columbine climb. In the evening, you’ll join your experienced buckle-sporting guides for Q&A sessions on proper training, diet, bike setup and crewing logistics.

Camp spots are limited and historically sell quickly, so don’t wait to save your spot for this opportunity to ride with Leadville legends!

This event is held on the San Isabel National Forest under a special use permit.
