Each Leadville Qualifying Series race provides 25-100 qualifying slots to the Leadville Trail 100 Run presented by La Sportiva, based on the total number of registered racers at each qualifier event. Half of the qualifying spots will be allocated based on the top age-group performances and half will be drawn among runners who have finished the qualifier race within the allocated cut-off time.

Qualifying slots will be distributed at the Awards Ceremony. Qualifying slot winners MUST BE PRESENT, as the roll-down qualifiers rule will be in effect at each event. All qualifier slots will be awarded and redeemed on race day. You must pay your entry to the LT100 Run within the three days after the event. You will have the option to register for the current year or the following year’s LT100 Run and must decide when accepting your qualification slot. All entries into the LT100 Run are non-transferrable.

1.)    Both distances are full. There is no on-site registration. There will be no changes permitted to your original race distance registration.

3.)    Weather for Saturday, June 19th – Expect warmer temps- 70’s with possible afternoon thunderstorms. Remember that Leadville is high alpine. If there is thunder or lightning, seek lower elevation quickly.

The Leadville Trail Marathon is 26.2 miles of out-and-back dirt roads and single track that takes you through the historic mining district on the east side of Leadville. The Heavy Half consists of 15.46 miles along the same path as the marathon minus the Ball Mountain section. The course is primarily on old mining roads and trails, topping out at 13,185 feet at Mosquito Pass. This is the HIGHEST continuous pass in the country! There is a chance you’ll see snow on the course. The courses will be well marked with fluorescent pink-and-black striped ribbon and flour arrows on the ground.

There will be three well-supplied aid stations for the Heavy Half and seven aid stations for the Trail Marathon including products from GU.

Please continue to stay socially distant from others, maintain one-way flow in and out of aid stations, and limit contact with volunteers and athletes.

Our races aim to be Zero Waste.. Look for recycle and compost bins at every aid station and start/finish. Please discard any waste in an appropriate container. 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.

For more information on LRS Zero Waste initiatives please see our partner organization’s website.

From the very beginning, volunteers have made the Leadville Stage Race possible. We truly appreciate all that our great volunteers do to make our races run smoothly and to make the racers’ experience unforgettable. If you are going to be in town for the 100MTB, we would love for you to join the family and pitch in.

REMINDER – Volunteer for any Leadville Race Series event (in Leadville) for 10 hours (or more) or have someone volunteer on your behalf, and you can bypass the lottery in the next year!

Thanks in advance for your help — we couldn’t do it without you!
