Description

 

LEADVILLE 100,000FT Challenge is BACK!

This is a no winner, non-race challenge! However, we will distribute prizes to individuals with outstanding accomplishments

 

Do you have what it takes to complete the Leadville 100,000ft Challenge? This unique event will challenge runners, riders and walkers everywhere to get creative, lace up your shoes or get on your bike, and reach 100,000 ft in elevation gain. Push yourself to new heights this summer, and let’s start climbing! You don't have to do it alone, grab a buddy and divide and conquer the 100K FT Relay!
If you're feeling extra bold, you can chase the 200K Challenge this summer by gaining 100,000 ft of elevation running & 100,000 ft riding! Let’s see what kind of grit, guts and determination you have. 
Since this is a virtual challenge, you can run or ride wherever and whenever you want!  We understand this will be far more challenging for those in flatlands compared to those in more mountainous terrain, but encourage folks to get creative to hit your elevation gain (parking garage ramps, staircases, bridges, loops around a block with a steep hill, etc.). We’ll re-share all the fun ways you guys are accomplishing the challenge on social and share our own versions of this challenge too!
