Have you attempted this legendary race before? Maybe you have and instead of coming home with a buckle, you found yourself with a DNF. Many capable runners begin the race expecting to finish, only to find somewhere along the way that their bodies and minds simply cannot complete the course.
That’s a pretty discouraging ending after training and gearing up for this hundred-mile race at 10,000 feet above sea level. It’s a big commitment and every runner wants to make it to the end.
Or maybe you HAVE finished Leadville several times, but still find that coveted big buckle to be elusive.
Leadville is no ordinary race. It takes more than standard training to get it right.
