VOLUNTEER

Volunteer registration for the 2024 Leadville Race Series will be open on March 1, 2024.

The people are the heart of the Leadville Race Series. Without the people — the staff, the riders, the Leadville community — there would be no “Race Across the Sky.” And the backbone of those people — the core of the Cloud City energy, heart and spirit — are our volunteers. Our volunteers aren’t just a part of the Leadville Family — they’re the reason that, after 40 years, we’re still together.

From start line to finish festival, our volunteers create the legendary Leadville experience for our runners, riders, families and fans. As a volunteer, you roll out the red carpet, spurring on our determined athletes before, during and after our events. The best part? By volunteering 15+ hours at any of our Leadville events, you earn preference for the following year’s lottery. Before you volunteer, be sure to read through this year’s updates and how you can apply your hours for preference in both the LT100 MTB and LT100 Run lotteries.
