Can my volunteer hours from the 2022 Leadville Race Series events go towards the 2023 Leadville Trail 100 Run or the Leadville Trail 100 MTB lottery?
Yes! Volunteering at any local 2022 Leadville Race Series event for 10 hours+** can gain you preference into the 2023 LT100 RUN or LT100 MTB. Runners volunteer at bike events and cyclists can volunteer for run events. For the past 35 years, our dedicated volunteers have been a necessity and you are greatly appreciated. Your contribution is what makes the Leadville Race Series an incredibly energetic and meaningful experience. Please note that only volunteer hours earned at events in Leadville, CO will be eligible for preference in the Leadville Trail 100 Run & Leadville Trail 100 MTB lotteries.
** Please note, we anticipate a change in volunteer hour requirements in 2023.
What should I wear to volunteer?
For your time and effort, you’ll receive a great T-shirt! We want you to wear it while you’re helping out so that you are easily identifiable to racers and crews. Remember that weather in Leadville is variable. Just because it’s July or August does not mean that it’s necessarily warm enough for shorts and sandals. Be prepared with pants, jacket, and even hats/gloves. Also, don’t forget the sunscreen, as we are above 10,000 feet.
Can I bring my family, friend, neighbor or co-worker?
The more the merrier! To help with appropriate staffing, it’s best to know numbers in advance, so please register anyone who is volunteering. Although we’ll never turn away great help! Volunteers you bring may donate hours to you, the racer. However you must volunteer as well in order for them to donate hours toward your lottery preference. We will be unable to accept volunteer hours from others to you if you have not volunteered.
How long should I plan to help?
Some assignments will require a strong commitment of particular hours. Just let us know what you can do and we’ll make the most appropriate assignment.
What should I do if I cannot make it?
Just let us know. We recognize that there are unforeseeable circumstances, but if you’re able to send a quick email or give us a call, we’ll be able to adjust.
