Dear Leadville Trail 100 Family,

CONGRATULATIONS! Your entry into the Leadville Trail 100 Mountain Bike Race has been accepted. Get ready to "Dig Deep" and challenge yourself to the highest and biggest mountain bike race around. Gear up to race with the world's BEST cyclists at the nation's highest quality athletic experience with the utmost degree of safety, medical care and racer support.

We would also encourage you to consider entering the awesome 50 mile "Silver Rush" on July 17. It's a tough, demanding and incredibly beautiful ride in Leadville's historic east side mining district. Also new this year is 24 Hours of Leadville on Sept. 4 & 5 - for when 100 miles isn't enough! Try it solo or grab some of your friends and sign up as a team. More information about this event and the entry process will be on our web site soon.

Last, but certainly not least, we always need and welcome volunteers to assist the mountain bike and running events. Whether you will be traveling with your own crew or plan on arriving early or staying later, it is very rewarding to help other racers achieve their goals. In addition, preference in the 2011 entry process is also given to those who fulfill the volunteer requirements for any of our 2010 races.

We are working hard to make this "Race Across the Sky," the best ever. Our good wishes to you for safe and satisfying training. See you at the start line on August 14, 2010!

Dig Deep,

Ken Chlouber Merilee Maupin
President, Leadville Trail 100 Race Director


  1. Congratulations! I didn't get accepted. Not surprising given that I didn't toss my name in the hat (I tried to dig that deep once and got my korn kicked...). Calvin and I will be your support team. Woot!

  2. Thanks Ricky, I'm going to need all the help I can get.
