Leadville Trail MTB 100

 Printable Version

This is it, the race of all races. One hundred miles across the high-altitude, extreme terrain of the Colorado Rockies, this event was created for only the most determined athletes. Starting at 10,152 feet and climbing to 12,424 feet, you'll be challenged to catch your breath — while the views try to take it away.


Entrance into the 2017 Leadville Trail 100 MTB will be open December 1-31, 2016. Winners will be notified in mid-January and automatically charged the $425 registration fee.

You may register for the LT100 MTB Lottery as an individual or a group. A maximum of eight family members, friends or teammates can click the group registration option. Group members will register individually, however using the exact group name to signify being part of a group. This will mean that either your entire group will be successful in the lottery or not. Assuring no one will be left out! Please note that if a member of your group has completed the LT100 MTB under the designated sub-12 hour cut-off seven or more times or they have volunteered 10+ hours in the 2016 season they will be forfeiting their guaranteed entry.

We will announce the results of the Lottery and open registration for the Qualifier Events in Mid-January.

If unsuccessful in the lottery process and you still wish to participate in the LT100 MTB, please check out some of the options below:
