Transamerica-logoOur sponsor Transamerica often enters its Tomorrow Chaser athlete to help raise money for charity in endurance events across the country. The Tomorrow Chaser starts at the back of the pack and for every person he or she passes, Transamerica donates an amount to charity. Transamerica has donated more than $100,000 to help make a better tomorrow for those in need.

Transamerica is once again excited to have local Leadville athlete and Tennessee Pass Cookhouse owner Ty Hall as their Tomorrow Chaser for the 2016 Blueprint for Athletes Leadville Trail 100 MTB. This marks his 15th LT100 MTB, a race that’s near and dear to him and his wife Roxanne. As locals Ty and Roxanne support, participate in and embrace the spirit of the Leadville Race Series (and they make some dang good food for us while they’re at it).

In 2015, Ty passed 1,481 athletes during the LT100 MTB to earn $7,285 for the Leadville Legacy Foundation. For every cyclist he passes in 2016, Transamerica will donate $5 to the Leadville Legacy Foundation. Please cheer him on when you see him out on course this year!

Transamerica is all about transforming both fiscal and physical passions through their support of your endurance community, with products and services designed especially to meet your unique needs. Transamerica will provide the BigRing Bike Valet when you cross the finish at the 2016 LT100 MTB. This free service allows you to leave your bike in a safe and secure setting while you relax and enjoy the rest of the day. Simply drop off your bike and use the valet ticket from your race plate to pick it up before you leave. Your bike will be clean and ready to roll when you are!

The Leadville Legacy Foundation began in 2002 as a nonprofit foundation to address the ever-increasing needs of the Leadville and Lake County communities. The Legacy fund thrives through generous contributions from individuals and corporations, as well as a portion of race entry fees with every dollar going directly to meet the needs of the community.
